The dates for the next BAUMA CONEXPO AFRICA are confirmed: The third International Trade Fair for Construction Machinery, Building Material Machines, Mining Machines and Construction Vehicles will be held at the Johannesburg Expo Centre (JEC) from March 13 to 16, 2018.
According to Stefan Otto, Chairman of the local industry association CONMESA, the choice of venue and the new timing which leaves plenty of time for planning, all provide the ideal basis for a successful industry event: “With 2018 rapidly approaching as the year of the trade fair, CONMESA is happy to learn that BAUMA CONEXPO AFRICA 2018 has decided to innovate and break with the norm once again by hosting their next trade fair in March 2018! As advisory board members and partners, we at CONMESA support the team at BAUMA CONEXPO AFRICA working so diligently to bring us this international trade fair once again.”
Elaine Crewe, CEO of the organizer 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.”
Six hundred and sixteen exhibitors from 42 countries, as well as around 14,300 visitors from 75 countries attended the last BAUMA CONEXPO AFRICA in September 2015. In total, 13% of visitors were from outside South Africa.
