Electra Mining Africa has called for more dialogue for stakeholders in the mining industry despite economic challenges the sector face.
“Although the mining industry is up against tough challenges and general industry remains under tight economic pressure, there is still a need for trade exhibitions and face-to-face interaction with clients,” says Gary Corin, Managing Director of Specialised Exhibitions Montgomery, organisers of Electra Mining show.
Slated for the10-14 September 2018 at the Expo Centre, Nasrec in Johannesburg, South Africa, over 80% of exhibition space has already been sold with 10 months to go before the mining, manufacturing, electrical and power trade show.
Recognised as the best attended trade show in Southern Africa, the mining jamboree has ensured that it has consistently attracted an average of 34,000 visitors and with over 850 local and international exhibitors across 33,000 m2 net indoor and outdoor exhibition space.
“Businesses need to find solutions that are cost effective, reduce operational spend and focus on streamlining operations for maximum benefit.”
“That’s why Electra Mining Africa continues to be so important. Visitors will be able to source new products, equipment, machinery and the latest systems and services which will address these operational and business needs.”
Electra Mining Africa 2018 and co-located shows Elenex Africa, Powerex and the Transport Expo, will be supported by a programme of content-rich conferences and free-to-attend seminars running alongside the exhibitions.
Electra Mining Africa enjoys official endorsement from the South African Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (SAIMM), the South African Institution of Mechanical Engineering (SAIMechE), Women in Mining South Africa (WiMSA), the Engineering Council of South Africa (ECSA), the Lifting Equipment Engineering Association of South Africa (LEEASA), the South African Fluid Power Association (SAFPA), the South African Capital Equipment Export Council (SACEEC) and the Kitwe & District Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
