Mining and Technical Exhibitions (MTE) has hit the road running this year and there is so much more on the cards…

The customary local Cullinan show on 24 February was a great success! The diamond district was upbeat and welcoming. A number of key visitors from the Cullinan Diamond Mine and the surrounding industry attended and networked with the 23 suppliers exhibiting their products and services.  Suppliers reported great discussions and beneficial feedback from decision makers in the industry as well as mine personnel sharing industry challenges, while the visitors enjoyed the display and demos of high-tech solutions.
