Welcome to the
The 13th Annual Haematology Oncology Symposium

Dear colleagues,

Never a dull moment! Yes, it seems that in this COVID day of age we can never assume anything.

Yesterday we were notified by Spier that, with immediate effect, they are closing down their main conference venue. Due to the effects of COVID-19 they were forced to realign and adjust their goals and priorities.

So first the Lord Charles and now Spier! But have no fear, for we have plan!

From the wine lands to the ocean……..it is with great excitement that the South African Clinical Haematology Society (SACHaS) present to you the 13th Annual Haematology Oncology Symposium (HaemOnc 2021), to be held on 16-17 October 2021 at the Lagoon Beach Hotel, Cape Town.

Things will largely remain unchanged otherwise, but this change brings some advantages such as a larger exhibition area to accommodate some role players which couldn’t before.


Thank you for your support to help keep HaemOnc 2021 on track to be the most amazing conference ever!

We look forward to seeing you there!

Yours sincerely,

Dr Hannes Koornhof
President: SACHaS
