Innovation will be a key driver at this year’s Electra Mining Botswana, taking place at the Gaborone Fairgrounds from 10-12 September. Co-located with the Africa Occupational Safety and Health (A-OSH) Expo Botswana, it is the only exhibition in Botswana that covers mining, industrial, power and occupational safety and health.
“Taking place every two years, Electra Mining Botswana offers an excellent networking opportunity for buyers and sellers across these industry sectors,” says Charlene Hefer, portfolio director at Specialised Exhibitions Montgomery.
“Visitors will see the latest technologies, state-of-the-art machinery, and innovative products and solutions that will help tackle business priorities such as reducing downtime, improving efficiency, containing costs and increasing profitability. The addition of A-OSH Expo Botswana broadens the reach of the show, and our partnership with local Botswana firm, TRM Group who are forerunners in occupational safety and health in Botswana, is a benefit to all stakeholders.”
The South African Capital Equipment Export Council (SACEEC), a non-profit public/private partnership representing the capital equipment and project sector will be represented at Electra Mining Botswana. “South Africa remains Botswana’s biggest trading partner and continues to hold huge potential for suppliers; in the mining sector but also in general engineering,” says SACEEC CEO Eric Bruggeman. “However, it is no longer enough to just be a ‘trading partner’, more needs to be done to become ‘industry partners’. We’re looking forward to conversations at Electra Mining Botswana as SACEEC is working to facilitate partnerships between SA suppliers and manufacturing companies in other African countries, with the aim of building strong relationships and innovative solutions for the African market.”
