2012 International Aquarium Congress
The Two Oceans Aquarium is proud to be hosting the 2012 International Aquarium Congress (IAC) from 9 to 14 September 2012 at the Cape Town International Convention Centre. For the first time ever, we will welcome the IAC to Africa and to the southern hemisphere. The IAC is the only international platform that gathers decision makers and professionals from the global public aquarium community to share and learn about new developments in the fields of inter alia animal husbandry, research, technology, management, education, conservation and sustainability. Excellent progress is being made in arranging the 2012 IAC and we are introducing some unique features to ensure that this congress is an outstanding event. Three internationally renowned scientists will deliver keynote addresses after the opening ceremony. Café conversations and in keeping with the theme of the 2012 IAC: The global aquarium community: sharing experiences and collectively inspiring change Voices for the Future of the Oceans, in which we link up young marine biologists and high school students across the globe through live video conferencing. Experience the natural splendour of your host nation, South Africa, and your host city, Cape Town.
