During the past month the MTE team delivered on their promise to make the recent Northern Cape combo exhibition one of the best of 2022 (so far!). All three events were extremely well received with attendees emphatically reporting that they had established many new contacts in the industry.

Hotazel Mining and Technical exhibition

The Hotazel expo took place on 19 July, hosted by the Hotazel Rec Club. This year’s visit to Hotazel was even bigger than in 2021 with over 250 visitors being welcomed to the 2022 show – 100 more than last year. Attendees included high profile personnel such as general managers, mine managers, mineral resources management and procurement supervisors. There was a consistent flow of these quality visitors throughout the day and the overall atmosphere was very positive, with many of our visitors commenting that the event was both useful and informative.

Our list of exhibitors is always growing as more businesses discover MTE and the array of benefits we offer and this year our Hotazel show hosted 20 more exhibitors compared to last year. In addition to all these new faces, the support from our existing clients was strong as ever and the feedback indicates that the day was a success for them as well. All of our events are customised with detailed research being performed before each show so we can ensure that the right visitors and exhibitors are brought together in one ideal location – just tell us what you are looking for and we will put you in touch with the right people.

Kathu Golf Day

The very next day on 20 July it was time for us to set up the Kathu Golf Day – a chance for some of our Northern Cape exhibitors to relax and enjoy some friendly competition while engaging in networking and the establishing of potentially fruitful business connections. The contest took the form of a 4-ball alliance scramble drive and featured some fantastic prizes up for grabs, with every hole on the course getting sponsored. All twenty 4-ball teams competed with enthusiasm and spirits were jovial the whole day, with victory eventually going to SGS South Africa. The combination of lively competition, good sportsmanship and glorious weather made this event the perfect place for forging lasting connections as well as good memories.

Kathu Mining and Industrial exhibition

With less than a day to prepare for the next show, the MTE Team nonetheless managed to organise another successful exhibition on 21 July at Hoërskool Kathu. Turnout for the day was very impressive, with over 300 visitors in attendance. Among the visitors present were safety managers, supervisors, engineering managers, contractors and even the general manager of a local mine.

Our exhibitors were equally well represented, with 19 new clients joining MTE for the Kathu expo. With demos and general information on their latest products and services readily available, this was a great opportunity for them to display the newest developments the industry has to offer.

The event was a beneficial one with encouraging comments from both exhibitors and visitors. The general manager from the nearby Lometeng Mine had the following to say:

“The show was definitely the best one you guys have held to date, a job well done! I for one certainly found it very informative and useful as our procurement department made a lot of new contacts!”

With another day well spent, the team then packed up the orange and yellow tents and headed off into the sunset to begin preparing for the next show.
