Africa's first and only dedicated exhibition for the maintenance industry.

Feb 2000 News

Instrumentation, measurement and control and factory automation will all feature at Maintenex Africa 2000 - Africa's first and only exhibition focusing on the maintenance industry.

The event - the first of its kind in Africa - is set to become an important industrial event on the annual southern African exhibition calendar, will take place between 5 and 7 June at Gallagher Estate and will be co-located with Cabling World 2000 and Facilities Management World 2000.

"The decision to stage Maintenex Africa 2000 in South Africa is based on the need in the market and the philosophy of AiC to bring world-class niche events to very specific local industry sectors." Said Denis Kampel, GM: Exhibitions at AiC. "We see maintenance as a very important issue, especially when the cost of maintaining large industrial concerns is taken into account. We believe that Maintenex Africa 2000 offers vendors and suppliers of maintenance strategies, products and services the ideal opportunity to attract new business and maintain existing clients."

Exhibition Manager, Ryno van Ellewee, said that exhibiting at Maintenex Africa 2000 will offer companies the opportunity to reach senior decision-makers responsible for maintenance, production, manufacturing, operations and quality control managers in Africa's leading industrial companies. These would include engineering, construction, automotive, oil, mining, iron and steel, telecommunication, manufacturing, utilities, transport, electricity and local and central government.

The exhibition floor is filling up quickly! Companies which will be utilising Maintenex Africa to showcase the latest in their maintenance packages include Pragma, Rotek, SKF, M-Tech, Brainware, Mincom and Futuristix.

Other companies that intend to use Maintenex Africa 2000 as a platform to launch new products and services come from such areas as control and instrumentation; measurement, asset management; electronic and electrical maintenance; automation; contract plant and equipment maintenance, industrial outsourcing and suppliers of specialist tools and machinery.

The corresponding maintenance, facilities management and cabling conferences will lend further appeal for visitors to attend. High profile speakers will address delegates on issues relating to maintenance and facilities management.
