Electra Mining Africa: more than just a show
For 46 years, Electra Mining Africa has been winning the minds and hearts of mining and related industries. Delivering an effective platform to showcase the latest innovations, technologies and trends, it is more than a show – it’s a tradition.
Taking place from 10-14 September at the Expo Centre in Nasrec, 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.
“There will be an exciting line-up of new products and services, live demonstrations and free-to-attend seminars at this year’s event, and visitors will benefit from the insight and information they will gain,” says Gary Corin, managing director of Specialised Exhibitions Montgomery, organisers of the show. “New technologies and innovation are influencing the way we do business and it is imperative that those in the industry keep up-to-date with these trends.”
One of the highlights at Electra Mining Africa will be the Artisans Training Centre, developed in partnership with The SAJ Competency Training Institute and the South African Equipment Export Council (SACEEC). This will be a fully functional workshop where learners will demonstrate the skills they have learnt at SAJ. Artisans visiting Electra Mining Africa can test their skills against the highest standards of industry, and could win a prize.
Top industry speakers will present at the conferences hosted by leading industry associations SAIMM, LEEASA and WIMSA, which will be taking place alongside Electra Mining Africa. Further knowledge and learning will be central to the SAIMechE hosted daily free-to-attend seminars.
