Fertility Show Africa (FSA) returns for two days in October with a fully interactive online show that offers participants access to a wide range of world-leading specialists, experts and clinics.
FSA – which is back after its hugely successful debut last year – takes place on Saturday, October 9, and Sunday, October 10, allowing attendees from around South Africa, the African continent and the rest of the world to discover everything they need to know during their fertility journey.
Says Heidi Warricker, CEO of FSA and Live Events: “We are online this year as were most other renowned international fertility shows which proved to be hugely successful. We have an even bigger offering than we did in 2020 with many would-be visitors indicating that they feel less vulnerable in an online situation and actually prefer it to face-to-face interaction. Depending on what happens with the ongoing pandemic we may make the decision later to also have an intimate in-person audience if regulations allow.”
Expert speakers and consultations available
FSA 2021 will give online attendees the opportunity to consult confidentially face-to-face with a wide range of clinics and experts. It will also run an unparalleled speaker programme from leading fertility and alternative parenting experts in a safe space where visitors can engage, ask questions, find answers and gather information from some of South Africa’s best specialists, embryologists, nurses, psychologists and social workers as well an international experts.
Exhibitors range from doctors to clinicians and practitioners to top class fertility clinics, legal advisors and support groups, surrogacy, adoption and donor agencies, natural fertility solutions and supplements, complementary and alternative therapies as well as nutritional and lifestyle advisors.
BabyYumYum’s Chief Mommy Amanda Rogaly will be speaking about The Myth of a Perfect Woman, Mother & Baby on Sunday 10th of October at 10am.
This year’s show will also include a virtual expo area showcasing a wide range of cutting-edge fertility and journey-to-parenthood products and solutions – enabling visitors to have one-on-one conversations with exhibitors and meeting them live in their booth.
