616 exhibitors from 42 countries and about 14 300 visitors from 75 countries attended the previous show in September 2015.
BC Expo South Africa, organisers of Bauma Conexpo Africa, have confirmed that the third edition of the show will be held at the Johannesburg Expo Centre (JEC) from March 13 to 16, 2018.
Elaine Crewe, CEO of BC Expo South Africa, is convinced that the new dates in March and the three-year cycle are ideal for the industry and the region. “Bauma Conexpo Africa’s three-year cycle is tailor made to the needs of the African market. It also gives all the companies involved the chance to prepare thoroughly for such a large event,” says Crewe.
Stefan Otto, chairman of the Construction and Mining Equipment Suppliers’ Association (Conmesa), the local industry association, says the choice of venue and the new timing leaves plenty of time for planning, while providing the ideal basis for a successful industry event.
A total of 616 exhibitors from 42 countries and about 14 300 visitors from 75 countries attended the previous show in September 2015. In total, 13% of visitors were from outside South Africa.
