Morning All,


The CTICC is equipped with generators so is unaffected by any power cuts.

Morning all
Apologies for the silence. I am in the process of resigning so I was a bit
pre-occupied with other things. The company I will present at the time of
the conference will obviously be different from teh current, but to keep
things going you can leave it as is now based on the fact that teh
prospectus already on the way to the printers. I will provide my new details
for inclusion in future documents once teh paper work has been finalised.
I think the prospectus looks great. I will need at least 3 copies in the
very near future towards attempting at signing SEF and Q-Sens up for some
sponsorships. There might be a third company, but I can only make details
available once I have done the paperwork.
It would be great to see government's commitment in reality with a
sponsorship. I therefore support Ravi's initiative 100%. I also think other
departments that can be approached would be the Department of Science and
Technology (DST) and the National Research Fund (NRF). I belive the NRF has
something called the Innovation Fund. What a better way to demonstrate their
commitment to innovativeness then to exhibit at such an event.
Just a question on logistics based on yesterday's load shedding by ESKOM
again. Is the ICC in Cape Town prepared for load shedding and can they
ensure that the conference can continue with the least amount of
My 2c's for now.
Kind regards,
Burnie Nawn

Hi all


Here's the latest version of the Prospectus. Since the last version it has
an almost-final exhibitor floorplan and a few details have been updated. 


Please focus on content, not aesthetics and contribute where you can,
especially highlighted sections.


We're sending it to our graphic designer tomorrow (14th) morning SAST to be
ready by Friday. Inge pls forward to Vincent. We can make any further
changes to his final version.
