Electra Mining Africa digs deep
With 46 years behind it, Electra Mining Africa is gearing up for another successful event in 2018. More than 80 percent of exhibition space has already been sold with ten months to go until the next edition of Electra Mining Africa, which will take place from September 10 to 14, 2018, at the Expo Centre in Nasrec, Johannesburg.
Electra Mining Africa is recognised as the best-attended trade show in southern Africa and is ranked as one of the world’s largest mining shows.
“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, MD of Specialised Exhibitions Montgomery, organiser of the show.
“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.”
According to Corin, at least 72 percent of visitors are purchasing decision-makers and influencers, while 82 percent are there to source new products and learn about the latest trends and technologies.
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.
