Trade Expo To Support Business Growth In Botswana
A niche trade show, it is designed to support business growth in Botswana by creating an environment where business partnerships can develop and trade exchanges can take place.
Markets are becoming increasingly competitive and companies are looking for efficiency improvements and cost containment to drive improved profitability and better returns. Spending time at Electra Mining Botswana will enable visitors to find products and solutions to address these priorities.
The mining industry remains a key driver of economic activity in Botswana and is forecast to sustain the economy further into the future. Capital expenditure on mines helps to boost business in other sectors such as construction, financial services and transport. This diversification is reflected at Electra Mining Botswana through its focus on mining, industrial, power generation and related industries.
“All stakeholders will benefit at Electra Mining Botswana,” says event director Charlene Hefer. “Exhibitors meet new customers and generate sales leads; visitors find products and services to increase output and profitability; and the Botswana economy sees benefit as every 1 Pula spent on exhibiting brings in 7 Pula to the economy.”
Visitors to the show can expect to see leading local and international companies showcasing the latest technologies, machinery, products and services related to mining, industrial and power generation. It is ideally positioned for visitors to learn about latest industry trends, speak to technical experts and benefit from seeing live demonstrations of machinery.
Taking place alongside Electra Mining Botswana is the recently launched A-OSH Expo Botswana, which will showcase occupational health and safety products and services. Botswana has a growing need for further awareness around occupational health and safety.
“A-OSH Expo Botswana is an ideal vehicle to promote all aspects of occupational safety and health concerns in the workplace,” says Hefer. “To this end, we have partnered with TRM Group, a wholly Botswana citizen owned company. TRM focuses on promoting a safer, healthier and environmentally friendly workplace, and increasing health and safety awareness in the country as a whole.”
A full programme of free-to-attend seminars will be taking place alongside the events providing an excellent learning opportunity for exhibitors and visitors. A variety of topics will be presented pertinent to all industries represented at the show.
Electra Mining Botswana is supported by government and leading industry organisations. “We are excited to have the endorsement of the Ministry of Mineral Resources, Green Technology and Energy Security, the Ministry of Investment, Trade and Industry, the Ministry of Employment, Labour Productivity and Skills Development, the Botswana Chamber of Mines, the Botswana Institution of Engineers and the Mining Equipment Manufacturers of South Africa for the 2019 show,” says Hefer. “We have also partnered with SACEEC – the South African Capital Equipment Export Council. In addition, the BBF Safety Group, Multotec, and the Southern African–German Chamber of Commerce and Industry, are sponsors of the show. We appreciate this support and look forward to working together.”
