Regrettably, we will not be able to host SATNAC 2021 at Spier, as planned. The effects of the global COVID-19 pandemic on our economy has forced Spier Management to realign their business and a decision was taken to close their Conference Centre.

Due to the above-mentioned, we had to find a new venue for SATNAC 2021 at very short notice.

We were fortunate to find a suitable venue and are excited to announce that SATNAC 2021 will now be held at Champagne Sports Resort, Central Drakensberg, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.  The dates are still from 21 to 23 November 2021.

The Southern Africa Telecommunication Networks and Applications Conference (SATNAC) is an annual event hosted under the auspices of Telkom and attracts in excess of 400 delegates. This prestigious event has become the continent's leading ICT conference where Industry, Academia and Operators publish on matters concerning progress achieved in applied research in the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) sector and where industry leaders share their views on latest trends and developments.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions, only 200 delegates will be allowed to attend this year's conference.  All COVID protocols will be observed.

SATNAC has proved to be an excellent networking platform for the ICT industry and prides itself on being an ideal forum for postgraduate students to highlight successes achieved on their research.

During the two-day conference a number of plenary sessions and presentations will focus on the theme: Accelerated Digitalisation - Current and Future Ways of Working with speakers and panellists representing telecommunication operators and vendors from international organisations.

Time will also be devoted to presentations and discussions covering the research being carried out by the 15 Telkom Centres of Excellence. These Centres of Excellence are located at tertiary learning institutes, at post graduate level.
