Almost 30 000 visitors from across South Africa,neighbouring SADC countries and as far away as South America, Turkey and Iran attended the five-day Electra Mining Africa 2018 trade show, organised by Specialised Exhibitions Montgomery at Johannesburg’s Nasrec Expo Centre from 10 to 14 September 2018.

Visitors experienced the latest innovations across various sectors including mining, industrial, electrical, power, transport and related industries. Engaging some 850 exhibitors, visitors saw many new products launched at the show, as well as new technologies unveiled.

Hundreds of live demonstrations allowed visitors to see new machinery and equipment in action. A number of free-to-attend seminars offered a learning platform and co-located conferences provided delegates with insight and knowledge.

This year’s event introduced an Artisan Training Centre developed in partnership with the SAJ Competency Training Institute and the South African Equipment Export Council (SACEEC). The centre provided a fully-functional workshop where the training options available to artisans were discussed and where training institute students demonstrated their skills, including boilermaking, welding, electrical, fitting, millwright, turning and CNC programming, as well as in jig and die making.

Another innovation at the 2018 show assigned different themes to each of the four days: day one focused on the future of skills development in South Africa and saw the launch of the Artisan Training Centre in Hall 10. Day two celebrated the new products launched at the expo while day three was “Proudly South African Day”. The penultimate day was dedicated to safety while the final day celebrated South Africa’s diversity in industry.
