After a challenging 2019, we remain optimistic about the outlook in the mining industry and despite the fact that the  industry has been in a tough space for the past decade with commodity prices up and down, policies that don’t promote investment and the mining charter not yet finalised, there has still been some positive news.

MTE has put together a 27 exhibition calendar that goes to six provinces in South Africa and four SADC countries, giving suppliers the opportunity and choice to penetrate markets they are not established in or use the exhibitions to maintain or grow their current business.

MTE starts the year with a combo exhibition in Bronkhorstspruit and Cullinan that will focus on the junior coal miners and a very well-established diamond mine. We are excited to host our flagship exhibitions such as Rustenburg, Steelpoort and our Northern Cape Tour in South Africa. Our regional exhibitions which are very well supported both by visitors and suppliers, so we are happy to keep them on the calendar. Swakop Uranium, which is based just outside of Swakopmund in Namibia, is our first SADC exhibition and is hosted at the mine in the Namib desert. This is a new exhibition that we are adding to our stable and is looking to be a quality expo with buy-in from senior management. Our other SADC exhibitions include our Botswana and Zambian tours as well as the Tete exhibition, which are really worthwhile due to them huge mining operations and well supported.

We look forward to having you on board exhibiting or visiting our exhibitions and wish you a successful and profitable 2020!
