Sponsorship Opportunities

Over the past five years the SAMRC Office of Malaria Research was successful in hosting the Malaria Research Conference. The conference provided academics, governmental and corporate stakeholders with a platform to showcase their research, developments, products and protocols that are geared towards the eradication of malaria in southern Africa. In light of the COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) pandemic, the 6th annual conference will be held as a virtual event from the 3 - 4 August 2021.

In light of the above we invite your esteemed organisation to partner with us in this year’s conference and consider funding the event that would host around 250 delegates. This important on-line meeting promises to be the largest gathering of the Malaria community and provides you with the ideal opportunity to virtually showcase novel findings, innovation, and research.

Sponsors will have a unique opportunity to:

  • highlight your organisations developments in the industry
  • gather information from scientists at the forefront of the elimination agenda in southern Africa
  • contribute towards continuing professional development
  • share best practice and network with colleagues.

 Sponsors will have various options of promoting their organisation online during the conference. Included in the sponsorship fee will an option to either display the organisation logo or products or show a short video clip of the services/products/activities or a combination during the break in sessions. The sponsorship will also entitle the organisations to promote their products on both days and on the conference website.
