The nation’s premiere platform for addressing the National Development Plan (NDP), the Vision 2030 Summit, takes off on 20 and 21 June 2018 at Emperors Palace, Ekurhuleni, South Africa.
As the ultimate arena for contributors from every sector, the 2018 edition of this world-class Summit sees private sectors, public sectors and civil society organisations join hands in building a national community working to drive economic acceleration and transformation.
Featuring high-level contributors from across the country, Vision 2030 Summit offers an opportunity for thought leaders, businesses and active citizens to gather, exchange knowledge, and take decisive action in their own sphere of influence to achieve the goals of the NDP.
The Vision 2030 Summit encourages the realisation of the NDP through national collaboration and recognises key figures that actively expand progress and make headway in achieving the NDP through the Vision 2030 Awards Ceremony. Convening leading minds and influential role players, the Summit provides a showcase of individuals and organisations that excel in the implementation of the NDP.
Under the endorsement of the National Planning Commission, the Vision 2030 Summit communicates the recommendations around implementation among all stakeholders in an inclusive platform comprising members of the Presidency, key government dignitaries and captains of industry to share insights, engage in discussion and forge a clear path for a successful future ahead.
