The market for construction and mining machinery in sub-Saharan Africa holds great potential–a fact that is reflected in the level of interest in BAUMA CONEXPO AFRICA. Many major players in the industry have already signed up to exhibit. The next edition of this International Trade Fair for Construction Machinery, Building Material Machines, Mining Machines and Construction Vehicles takes place from 15 to September 2015 at the Johannesburg Expo Centre (JEC).
Samantha Swanepoel, general manager of Marketing at Barloworld Equipment, certainly understands the importance of this event: "BAUMA CONEXPO AFRICA serves as an excellent opportunity to unveil new Cat® equipment technologies and earthmoving solutions to our Southern African mining, construction and industrial customer base."

We are excited that BAUMA CONEXPO AFRICA 2015 promises to build on the inaugural show by attracting more industry role players and generating positive spin-offs for the region, the industry and our customers."
