Construction and mining taken to new heightsThe African construction and mining industries are set to receive a comprehensive overview of the technologies of the future at the third Bauma Conexpo Africa, which will be held between March 13 and 16.

More than 400 exhibitors and around 20 000 visitors will descend on the Johannesburg Expo Centre Nasrec. Visitors can get a first look at the new machinery, systems and solutions on an exhibition area of 68 000 m².

Delegations from Botswana, Chile, Ethiopia, India, Kenya, Mozambique, Nigeria and Zambia, are expected.

“Bauma Conexpo Africa is the largest trade fair of its kind in Africa and offers numerous innovations and interaction opportunities,” says Stefan Rummel, MD of Messe München.

In the demo area, selected exhibitors will give live demonstrations of their machines and equipment and industry experts will be able to experience the technical innovations first hand.

The speakers’ corner provides visitors the opportunity to engage with exhibitors regarding the latest developments in the industry through presentations and case studies.

The North American-based Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) – joint venture partner of Bauma Conexpo Africa – is bringing to the show tech talks with top representatives from renowned businesses and universities.

The topics discussed will range from the smart construction site and the use of robots, to technologies for building resilient and sustainable infrastructure.

The development of the world’s first 3D-printed excavator will also be presented during the tech talks. It was designed at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), United States Department of Energy, in Tennessee.

Visitors can register now. With pre-registration, visitors get free entry to Bauma Conexpo Africa on every day of the trade fair.
