The international mining show will showcase the latest machinery, equipment, products and services through live demos and simulation booths. More than 850 local and international exhibitors are expected to be present at the show, with international pavilions confirmed for China, France, UK and Turkey.

The exhibition will be patronised by leading industry associations such as the South African Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (SAIMM), South African Institute of Mechanical Engineers (SAIMechE) and Women in Mining South Africa (WIMSA). A new association on board supporting Electra Mining Africa is the Engineering Council of South Africa (ECSA), a statutory body established in terms of the Engineering Profession Act (EPA), 46 of 2000.

“We are delighted to partner again with leading industry associations SAIMM, SAIMechE and WIMSA and we also welcome ECSA. We look forward to finalising discussions around the various conferences and initiatives that they are planning to take place alongside the show,” said Specialised Exhibitions Montgomery managing director Gary Corin.

The South African Capital Equipment Export Council (SACEEC) will be organising an Inward Buying Mission to assist mining companies from South America to attend the show. “The Inward Buying Mission is also really important to us. It is a partnership that has continued over many years and we have previously been host to a high number of senior mining representatives from South America, Russia, USA and Canada,” added Corin.

Co-located with Electra Mining this year will be Power-Ex – an energy showcase for power generation, transmission, distribution and clean energy.

There will be a host of seminars and conferences at the exhibition, aimed at engaging the industry’s most experienced in sharing insights and upcoming trends.

Keeping in mind the various challenges faced by the mining industry, Corin believes that trade shows are still relevant as they ensure direct interaction with customers, allow companies to find cost-effective solutions and new products.
