For 46 years, Electra Mining Africa has been winning the minds and hearts of mining and related industries. Delivering an effective platform to showcase the latest innovations, technologies and trends, it’s much more than a show – it’s a tradition.

Taking place between September 10 and 14 at the Expo Centre in Nasrec, Johannesburg, leading players in the mining, manufacturing, electrical and power industries are looking forward to engaging with visitors and sharing information on their latest products, services and solutions.

“There will be an exciting line-up of new products and services, live demonstrations and free-to-attend seminars at this year’s Electra Mining Africa and visitors will benefit from the insight and information they will gain,” says Gary Corin, MD of Specialised Exhibitions Montgomery, organiser of the show.

“New technologies and innovation are influencing the way we do business and it’s imperative that those in the industry keep up-to-date with these trends.”

New at this year’s show, each day will focus on a different theme. Day one will centre on the future of skills development. One of the highlights at Electra Mining Africa will be the Artisans Training Centre, developed in partnership with the SAJ Competency Training Institute and the South African Equipment Export Council (SACEEC). This will be a fully functional workshop where learners will be demonstrating the skills that they learn at SAJ; including boilermaking, welding, electrical, fitting, millwright, turning and CNC programming tool, JIG and die making.

Artisans visiting Electra Mining Africa can test their skills against the highest standards of industry – and could win a prize.

Top new products will be the focus on day two, whereas on day three visitors will be part of the “Local is Lekker” South Africa day – a day to celebrate our local heritage.

Safety takes the spotlight on the fourth day. Diversity takes centre stage on the final day of the show, celebrating the diverse reach of Electra Mining Africa.

Top industry speakers will present at the conferences hosted by leading industry associations such as the  Southern African Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (SAIMM), the Lifting Equipment Engineering Association of South Africa (LEEASA) and Women in Mining South Africa (WIMSA), which will be taking place alongside Electra Mining Africa. Further knowledge and learning will be central to the South African Institution of Mechanical Engineering (SAIMechE) daily free-to-attend seminars.
