More a tradition than a show, for 46 years, Electra Mining Africa has been delivering an effective platform to showcase the latest innovations, technologies and trends in mining and related industries. Taking place from 10-14 September 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.

Electra Mining Africa more than just a show

“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, Managing Director of Specialised Exhibitions Montgomery, organisers of the show. “New technologies and innovations 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 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, which has been showcasing the future of mining, manufacturing, electrical and power since 1972. 

Top industry speakers will present at the conferences taking place alongside Electra Mining Africa and hosted by leading industry associations SAIMM, LEEASA and WIMSA. Further knowledge and learning will be central to the SAIMechE hosted daily free-to-attend seminars.
