Taking place from 10 - 14 September at the Expo Centre in Nasrec, Johannesburg (South Africa), leading players in the mining, manufacturing, electrical and power industries are looking forward to engaging with visitors and sharing information on their latest products, services and solutions.
Many new products will be unveiled and visitors will also have the opportunity to watch live product demonstrations, engage with technical experts and participate in the daily free-to-attend seminars, as well as enter lucky draws and competitions.
“Over 850 local and international exhibitors will be showcasing their latest innovations at this year’s Electra Mining Africa,” says Gary Corin, Managing Director of Specialised Exhibitions Montgomery, organisers of the show. “It will be a highly informative and interactive environment.”
“These new technologies are influencing the way we do business and it’s imperative that those in the industry keep up-to-date with these trends,” explains Corin. “It’s the way to ensure their businesses keep future-fit and that they don’t get left behind. We need to know where Industry 4.0 is taking us, and we need to know how the new products and machinery on the market can optimise our production and increase profits. We provide that knowledge and learning environment at Electra Mining Africa and it’s enhanced even further with the addition of the co-located industry conferences and the free-to-attend daily seminars. Many of our exhibitors will also have knowledge-sharing presentations on their stands.”
Five days, five themes
New at this year’s show, each day will focus on a different theme. “Day one will centre on the future of skills development and one of the highlights at Electra Mining Africa will be the Skills Development Area, developed in partnership with the Artisan Training Institute and the South African Capital Equipment Export Council (SACEEC),” says Event Director, Charlene Hefer.
“Taking place in Hall 8, this will be a fully functional workshop where learners will be demonstrating the skills that they learn at the Artisan Training Institute,” Hefer explains. “Artisans visiting Electra Mining Africa can test their skills against the highest standards of industry – and could win a prize.”
Top new products will be the focus on day two whereas on day three, visitors will be part of the ‘Local is Lekker’ South Africa day – a day to celebrate Electra Mining Africa’s local heritage. Safety takes the spotlight on the fourth day, whereas diversity takes centre stage on the final day of the show, celebrating the diverse reach of Electra Mining Africa which has been showcasing the future of mining, manufacturing, electrical and power since 1972.
Conferences and seminars
Further knowledge and learning will be central to the daily free-to-attend seminars, hosted by the South African Institute of Mechanical Engineers (SAIMechE). Leading experts will be presenting highly informative topics that align with the five daily themes.
Top industry speakers will be presenting at the conferences hosted by the foremost industry associations SAIMM, LEEASA and WiMSA, which will be taking place alongside Electra Mining Africa.
