Jo’burg to host doyens in Africa’s PVP sector
The largest and most comprehensive African trade show dedicated to industries involved in the conveyance of liquids, gases, and slurries will in June bring together key buyers, engineering professionals, leading manufacturers, suppliers and agents to exhibit, network, learn and do business.
INDUTEC Africa recently announced that for the first time ever, its 11th edition of Pumps, Valves & Pipes Africa, taking place 11-13 June, will now be co-located with African Construction Expo and Totally Concrete Expo – both part of the Big Five portfolio of construction events under the umbrella of dmg events .
Says Project Manager, Nico Loretz: “The event will feature and showcase latest technologies and innovations in pump, valve and pipe manufacturing, engineering, installation, maintenance, refurbishment and all else related.”
According to Sales Manager, Dale Magaya, leading manufacturers, suppliers and service providers for pumps, valves, pipes and all related equipment within the following industry sectors will exhibit at the event:
- Extractive industries (mining and minerals)
- Construction (infrastructure)
- Energy (oil, gas and petrochemicals)
- Water and wastewater
- Power generation (solar thermal, hydropower, nuclear, geothermal)
- Food and beverage
- Pulp and paper
Loretz adds that the event will not only feature a trade exhibition, but will also include a free-to-attend joint keynote session, workshops and interactive panel discussions that will provide practical, applicable knowledge sharing – not only for visitors to gain knowledge and improve their skills, but also to expand their professional network for years to come.
“We call upon industry to submit abstracts that include case studies and technical content that are thought provoking, innovative, futuristic, and problem-solving. Proposal submissions will be directed to the Expert Advisory Panel for approval and the deadline for submissions has been extended until the 22nd February”.
“Africa has enormous growth potential in all the growth and investment areas as mentioned by Dale Magaya. Not only are terms like ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT) and Big Data on everybody’s lips these days, but localisation and skills developments are just as important in order for Africa’s economy to elevate to the next level. These issues will form part interactive panel discussions among technical case studies during the event”, he concludes.
