bauma CONEXPO Africa is currently in full swing at Nasrec in Johannesburg. The show started on 13 March and will end on 16 March. It brings together more than 400 exhibitors while 20 000 visitors are expected.

Crown stand at baumaCrown Publications is a business-to-business publisher with a 30-year-plus track record and publishes six monthly and three quarterly magazines. It focuses on industry: mining, construction, capital equipment, mechanical and chemical engineering and electricity. Three of these publications, Capital Equipment News, Construction World and Modern Mining are being highlighted at the publisher’s stand in Hall 6.

“bauma CONEXPO AFRICA is the largest trade fair of its kind in Africa and offers numerous innovations and interaction opportunities. Our magazines offer a vehicle for OEMs, and suppliers of products and services to reach the right people,” says Karen Grant, Crown Publications’ publisher. “Each magazine has a tightly controlled and audited database to which print editions are mailed. In addition, each of our titles has a website and electronic newsletter with which we transcend the geographical limitations of the print edition, especially now that Africa is experiencing huge growth.” Readers in Africa can receive a PDF replica of the print issue, which gives the print edition a cross-border readership. “The sending of PDF replicas of the print editions is part of our audit process.”

This year, bauma CONEXPO Africa has delegations from Botswana, Chile, Ethiopia, India, Kenya, Mozambique, Nigeria, and Zambia. “Even though South Africa is still a powerhouse in African industry, the growth nodes have shifted to East Africa and to a lesser extent West Africa. Ethiopia has one of the fastest growing economies in the world and the Kenyan economy is buoyant,” says Grant. “While the main focus of Crown Publications’ is still on print in South Africa, our online offering, eNewsletters and PDF replicas enable us to inform industry across Africa.”
