BAUMA CONEXPO AFRICA takes place at the Johannesburg Expo Centre from September 15 to 18. The CEA (Construction Equipment Association) is once again running a UKTI (UK Trade & Investment) supported Pavilion (Hall 6) at the event and can report that all space sold out in record time! 16 UK companies have committed to exhibit at the show – flying the flag for Great Britain.
Bauma Conexpo Africa is the international trade fair for Construction Machinery, Building Material Machines, Mining Machines and Construction Vehicles, the first Bauma Africa in September 2013 attracted 754 exhibitors from 38 countries and 14,700 visitors from over 100 countries. Covering a total of 60,000 square meters of exhibition space (40,100 square meters net) this is the biggest event for the sector in Africa. The top ten visitor countries were South Africa, Mozambique, Germany, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Italy, Namibia, United Kingdom and India.
Joanna Oliver MBE, CEA director of global programmes said,
“South Africa is a market with a future which offers great potential for the construction machinery industry, and of great interest to the UK exhibitors. The African economy has tripled since 2000 and presents a significant opportunity across multiple sectors—with US$2.6 trillion of revenue expected by 2020 across resources, agriculture, consumer and infrastructure.”
- “The CEA is delighted to be presenting the 2015 UK Pavilion with over 15 UK companies presenting their products. With the generous sponsorship of UKTI, we hope that this event will expose the UK companies exhibiting too many potential buyers, end users and partners. We look forward to welcoming visitors on the CEA stand – H6G44.”
