MTE Exhibitions completed another successful show at Mooinooi and in Rustenburg in the Platinum Belt of the North West Province last month. Platinum, palladium, and rhodium have been the talk of the town and with commodity prices on the up, it is a good time for companies in the supply chain to showcase their products.

With the mining industry hungry for face-to-face interaction, MTE’s Mooinooi show could not have come at a better time. Under clear skies the 33 exhibitors and more than 150 visitors enjoyed the great winter weather to its fullest, showcasing their best products and technology, while interacting with important decision makers. Several high-level managers from various operations showed keen interest and engaged in meaningful discussions with exhibitors. Post-show feedback from both visitors and exhibitors was exemplary as usual, and MTE packed up and moved on to their next destination in the world-famous, platinum rich, geological anomaly.

The same positive energy was palpable as MTE unloaded their trucks and set up shop in Rustenburg two days later. Rustenburg has traditionally been one of MTE’s flagship shows and it once again did not disappoint. With the limit for outdoor gatherings maintained at 500, visitor numbers reached capacity early in the afternoon as the 78 exhibitors welcomed decision makers to their stalls, making sure they maintained a safe distance, masked up and sanitised, before they stepped in to look at new mining solutions. Once again feedback from both visitors and exhibitors was great and there were smiles all around as the sun set in the Bushveld Igneous Complex, and MTE finished the week off on another high note. The successful week-long North West tour reiterates MTE Exhibitions commitment to educating and informing the mining industry of what solutions are available, and backs up claims that small, outdoor exhibitions are alive and well in South Africa, and can be done safely and successfully under the strictest of Covid-19 regulations.
