Stellenbosch awarded Safe Travels Stamp

Stellenbosch has become the first destination in South Africa to be awarded Safe Travels Stamp by the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC).

WTTC, which represents the global Travel and Tourism private sector, designed the special Safe Travels stamp to enable travellers to identify destinations and businesses around the world which adopted its health and hygiene global standardised protocols – so consumers and holidaymakers can experience ‘Safe Travels’. 

Other popular holiday destinations that comply with Safe Travels standards include Turkey, Portugal and Mauritius. 

The WTTC has recognised Stellenbosch for the quick and rigorous adoption of recommended hygiene and sanitary measures in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. 

Stellenbosch has launched many initiatives implementing and addressing elevated standards of health and safety in the popular tourist destination, ensuring that they are ready to safely welcome local and international visitors.

In light of the ongoing global pandemic caused by the Corona virus (Covid-19) and subsequent travel restrictions and lockdowns, the conference organisers have decided to postpone the 3rd ASM joint MYTOX-SOUTH 2020 conference to 11 – 14 April 2021.

The ever-unfolding impact of Covid-19 and the uncertainty associated with the pandemic provides little to no ability to determine when travel and large meetings like conferences may be permitted. Thus we could only conclude the postponement of the conference to be in the best interest of all concerned.

We will communicate the new target dates for registration and submission of abstracts shortly.

We wish you all good health and safety during this period.

Prof. Sheila Okoth & Prof. Sarah De Saeger
President of ASM & Coordinator MYTOX-SOUTH
