The South African Flameproof Association held its annual symposium on 13 November 2014 at the Graceland Casino in Secunda, Mpumalanga Province.


You will appreciate that arranging a symposium such as SAFA involves substantial costs and therefore SAFA will once again be calling on its members and supporters to sponsor items at the symposium and gala dinner to assist SAFA in making the 2013 symposium an unforgettable experience. There are a variety of opportunities that can be sponsored or partially sponsored and effective coverage will be given to all sponsors at the symposium and gala dinner, as done in the past with some new branding ideas for organisations.

Accommodation is available at the Graceland Casino where the symposium will be held.

Exhibition stands will be available at this year’s symposium.

Exhibition rates:

Members: R 3 200,00
Non-members: R 4 400,00

It comprises almost 200 member companies which include both end users and manufacturers, as well as relevant government bodies and equipment testing houses. The association has branches in Gauteng (Johannesburg) Kwa Zulu Natal (Durban) and the Cape (Cape Town).
