BAUMA CONEXPO AFRICA Moves to Three-Year Cycle After 2015


— Aug 28, 2014

After celebrating its premiere event in 2013, Africa’s largest trade fair for the construction machinery and mining industry is making some changes. The next BAUMA CONEXPO AFRICA takes place Sept. 15-18, 2015 at the Johannesburg Expo Center in Johannesburg, South Africa, but after that, the event is moving to a three-year cycle — meaning the next fair will be held in 2018.

This decision was made after close consultation with local and international industry representatives who recommended the three-year cycle for the markets of Africa.
 
We made this strategic decision based on the many discussions we have held since the extremely successful premiere. The three-year cycle clearly positions BAUMA CONEXPO AFRICA as the leading trade fair in Africa for the global construction and mining industry,” said Elaine Crewe, CEO of BC Expo South Africa.

Lawrence Peters, Chairman of CONMESA (Construction and Mining Equipment Suppliers' Association), is also pleased by the news: As a local partner, we are pleased that the discussions were so productive and that the organizers of BAUMA CONEXPO AFRICA decided to change the frequency of future events. The three-year interval suits the region because it depicts the market more accurately. It also gives local and international companies additional time to ensure that they are sufficiently prepared for the intense business activity at this event.
