If you or your company are a key player in the fertility industry then you cannot afford to miss being part of Fertility Show Africa 2022, which this year will be free for all attendees – both online and at the live and in-person event happening at the Focus Rooms in Sandton, Johannesburg on July 23 and 24.

Infertility issues remain at an all-time high around the world, and with the recent Covid pandemic and resultant lockdowns, many sufferers were forced to put a temporary halt to their journey to find solutions or undergo treatments.

Now, with restrictions having eased and events such as FSA able to operate in-person shows once again, those struggling to conceive need expert advice, support and encouragement more than ever and are actively seeking answers, solutions and treatments.

This is where you or your company’s involvement is so important because it means that individuals and couples at the show can explore all their options in one setting and speak to as many experts and specialists as possible.

Mindful that many of those suffering from infertility prefer a certain level of privacy and confidentiality, FSA 2022 will once again host an online event that will run alongside the physical show. This will not only provide a platform for those wanting to keep their attendance more private, but it will also allow visitors from all parts of South Africa, the African continent and the rest of the world to attend.

FSA 2022 highlights will include the popular Expert Talks programme, the Support Zone and the Q&A Sessions – all featuring some of the best specialists, embryologists, nurses, psychologists and social workers, as well as an in-person Expo area showcasing the latest fertility and journey-to-parenthood products and solutions, enabling visitors to have direct conversations with exhibitors.

Show participants will include doctors, practitioners, fertility clinics, legal advisors, support groups, surrogacy and donor agencies, natural fertility solutions and supplements, complementary and alternative therapies as well as nutritional and lifestyle advisors.
