Our Conference Theme
“Leadership and innovation to preserve and enhance the value of the region’s roads within a rapidly changing world.”

Welcome to CAPSA 2019

We are pleased to invite you to the 12th Conference on Asphalt Pavements for southern Africa (CAPSA 2019) that will be held from 13 – 16 October at Sun City, South Africa.

It is truly amazing to reflect that this will be the 50th anniversary of CAPSA which was launched in Durban in 1969 and grown into one of the most prestigious conferences on road engineering both for the southern African region and the broader international fraternity. While the environment has changed dramatically since 1969 the aim of CAPSA remains unchanged, the dissemination of knowledge and the exchange of ideas with an emphasis on road building and maintenance in southern Africa. CAPSA will once again offer a broad spectrum of practitioners the opportunity to interact and to share their professional skills with colleagues from the subcontinent and abroad.

Today our industry, is not immune to the disruption that is being experienced across markets and companies due to the acceleration experienced in technology and the theme of CAPSA 2019, “Leadership and innovation to preserve and enhance the value of the region’s roads within a rapidly changing world” is appropriate.

On behalf of the executive and steering committees I look forward to welcoming you all to CAPSA 2019!

Phil Hendricks
CAPSA’19 Chairperson
