If you are a mining stakeholder – whether it’s a mine owner, mine manager or a decision maker on a mine, requiring solutions to mining challenges, or a supplier to the mines and need a platform to talk to the right people at mine level – Mining and Technical Exhibitions (MTE) is your solution. MTE has run professional, targeted, high impact expos at the mines in the SADC region for over two decades and, ‘the proof of the pudding, is in the eating,’ as they say…
MTE held their annual expo in Kathu in September 2021, and Herbert van Rensburg, general manager at Lomoteng Mine in the Northern Cape, had this to say: “The service providers that MTE sourced to participate in this year’s expo were of exceptional stature, and the items that they were marketing have really assisted us as an end user of their products to quickly and easily contact the right person to find a cost-effective solution to our constraints in the mining environment.”
MTE’s Expos are a welcome source of supply to mines and are a stark contrast to the reality in the industry where, as van Rensburg explains, “fly-by-night” suppliers are a common problem, in that middlemen often pose as the source of supply and not only over-charge, but fail to deliver seamless, quality solutions on time. “Holding these expos certainly broadens our horizons, so to speak, and enables us to get in touch with suppliers who can quickly assist us with our problems,” says van Rensburg.
MTE’s strong relationships in the industry, their professional operational execution and the fact that they follow strict Covid-19 protocols, have enabled MTE to secure a number of shows for the balance of 2021. To name but a few, Lephalale Mining & Industrial Exhibition, Incorporating Power Stations on 21 October, the Sibanye Gold show scheduled for 11 November, and the Lichtenburg Cement, Quarry and Industrial Exhibition on 18 November.
