Large mineral sand operations, the Richards Bay Coal terminal and port, and a number of sugar mills and smelters have kept the northern parts of the KwaZulu Natal province in South Africa ticking over the last few decades. MTE Exhibitions’ orange and yellow tents are a familiar sight in this port city on the south eastern coast of Africa. The MTE truck will make its appearance in town again on the 10th of June 2021, when suppliers to the mining industry, the agricultural sector, the RB harbour, and the paper and forestry sectors are given an opportunity to show off their latest products and services.
Although a few large investment and expansion projects have been put on ice due to the impact of Covid-19 and community concerns, hopes remain high that these opportunities will breathe new life into a region that has the potential to drive the South African economy.
The Richards Bay harbour on the Indian Ocean, is the largest coal export facility in Africa. It is situated at one of the world’s deep-sea ports and is subsequently able to handle large ships and large volumes of coal.
MTE Exhibitions will be at the John Ross College, Jacaranda, Arboretum in Richards Bay on the 10th of June 2021 between 13:00 and 17:00. Be sure not to miss it. Entrance for visitors is free. Suppliers interested in exhibiting at Richards Bay, need to book as soon as possible, as space is slowly starting to run out.
