As South Africa starts recovering from a deadly third wave of Covid-19 infections, and with the vaccination roll-out programme starting to gather momentum, MTE Exhibitions is aiming to get their show back on the road by September 2021. This all depends, of course, on government regulations dealing with the spread of Covid-19, and whether the country manages to escape a fourth wave of the pandemic.
For now, however, we are confident that MTE’s intimate outdoor shows will be safe enough to host, even if we do see a slight spike in Covid-19 numbers. Not only has the South African mining industry been at the forefront of the country’s vaccination drive, but the majors have made mega-profits and filed mega tax contributions, which the fiscus has welcomed with open arms.
So, in a slightly more upbeat business environment, several of MTE’s favourite shows have been approved and the dates are almost ready to be confirmed. MTE Exhibitions remains aware of the Covid-19 threat and will continue updating clients on the latest developments. We continue to collaborate with mining companies to bring you the best and the safest mining exhibitions one can ask for in these extraordinary times. With strict Covid-19 protocols in place, all exhibitors and visitors will feel comfortable participating in our unique and interactive exhibitions.
MTE’s Steelpoort, Sibanye Gold, Sappi Ngodwana and Lephalale shows have been confirmed and dates will be communicated within the next few weeks – so if you are interested, please contact us.
