We hope that you are all enjoying the AfricaSan5 FSM5 event and the beautiful city of Cape Town!


Please be aware that the opening plenary tomorrow on our final day will be starting promptly at 9:00 a.m. in the auditorium.


Once again, we kindly ask that you return our simultaneous interpretation headsets each day. While these devices can only be used with our equipment, we are responsible for returning each one.


Although most travelers visit Cape Town without incident, several delegates have experienced theft-related incidents outside of the convention centre. Despite the city’s relatively safe look and feel, we advise you to maintain heightened awareness of your surroundings and take precautions.

  • Avoid walking alone, and please try to use Uber.
  • Always keep your personal belongings close to you and out of sight. If you are a victim of a criminal incident, you should not resist and instead fully cooperate to reduce the risk of harm or injury.
  • If you do experience an incident, please report it to the security team located at the registration desk.
