After a lot of planning in 2019, MTE has successfully hosted three of our 27 exhibitions in February, with very positive feedback from both visitors and suppliers.
We believe firmly in our face-to-face philosophy and that our networking platforms continue to bring buyer and supplier together at the heart of the mines and industry. Here’s some feedback from February:
The Lephalale Mining and Industrial Exhibition, held on 20 February at Mogol Club was a bumper show with very positive feedback!
The number of attendees increased from 180 visitors in 2019 to over 300 this year – proving the value that MTE can bring to the area. Lephalale houses probably the biggest coal reserve in South Africa, where two of the Eskom’s major power stations are situated, and the MTE team rolled up their sleeves and spoke to people on the ground to help promote the show and draw feet.
The show saw management from all operations – electrical engineers, mechanical engineers, civil engineers, heads of draughting, heads of maintenance, heads of mining, heads of procurement, contracts managers and electrical maintenance managers, and it was clear that MTE proved to be the vehicle to take the right suppliers to the show!
Lephalale – what company representatives had to say:
“Great show! There were a lot of decision makers that came through.” – RS Components.
“Best show so far.” – ESAB.
“Good quality people have been invited, which has been great for us, and will hopefully translate into good sales.” – Pferd SA.
“Excellent numbers of high quality clients with great interest – uch better quality than expected.” – Multotec.
Namibia is next on the calendar with our first ever on-site exhibition being held at Swakop Uranium’s Husab mine. A lot of hard work has paid off. With over 40 suppliers displaying their products and services, this will be an expo to remember! There is still space so don’t miss out.
Date: 19 March 2020
Time: 12:00 – 17:00
Venue: Husab Mine
We are finding a much more positive vibe in the mining industry with the surge on the precious metal prices. With our upcoming platinum and gold exhibitions in May, we will ensure that we carry on with the positiveness by making them solution-driven and worthwhile for our exhibitors and visitors – so watch this space!
