This is what our exhibitors and visitors have to say about our shows.

Electra Mining 2016

Testimonial angle

It is important to see first-hand the capacity of our industry and Electra Mining Africa gives us this opportunity. It is a great place for us to demonstrate our manufacturing capacity.

David Makhura, Gauteng Premier

Our main focus is to assist local South African companies to export their products across the world. We see Electra Mining as the most important expo for both the general and mining engineering sectors.

Eric Bruggman, CEO, SACEEC

This is our 14th consecutive show and I love Electra Mining Africa - it’s a great show. It allows me to demonstrate the latest technology to all my customers. Where else do you get a week of the year to talk to all your customers? I call it the F1 of mining!

Peter Killian, Managing Director, Hi-Tech Machine Tools

We are regular exhibitors and consider it a meeting ground to see all our customers. This year we’ve had a good response from visitors and have generated good leads. There’s been a high volume of visitors. We look forward to being back here in two years’ time.

Willem Pietersen, Director, MMD

This is Becker’s 13th exhibition at Electra Mining Africa. We’ve had an excellent response from the show and generated several leads. The highlight this year is definitely the quality of visitor. With the industry changing, and the tough times we are in, it is very necessary to be here.

Ken Quick, CEO, Becker Mining

This is the first time that we have exhibited and we have gained good momentum. It is a good show to meet both potential and existing customers and we have generated a number of new leads and sales.

Peter Larsen, VP sales and Safety, Kal Tire

In previous years we exhibited our equipment, but this year we have no equipment on display. Instead we have smart technology including Virtual Reality (VR) and a mining tunnel. We have succeeded in attracting a new segment of the market. The Expo allows us to broaden our spectrum in the industry and we have seen a high volume of good quality people.

Simon Andrews, Sandvik

We’ve been at three Electra Mining shows previously. It has been a difficult year, but we’ve added more products to our range and we’ve had a good response from customers with many good leads generated. We have also sold a compressor generator and three dozers. Electra Mining is very important to us.

Hui (Bob) Wang, CEO, Everstar Industries

Our theme this year is complete mining solutions and the response has been great. We have had many of our existing customers visit us and we have got some solid leads. We are also having some great conversations with visitors. This is our second Electra Mining as Scania.

Becky Smith, General Manager, Scania

We'’'ve had some interesting discussions with customers and will be following up. Electra Mining Africa is a great launch pad into the local market as well as Africa. It also provides a great opportunity to meet with people from the same industry; something we do not often get the opportunity to do.

Konrad Mtys, Continental

We'’'ve been at the show a few times. It just gets bigger and better every time.

Jason Trum, Regional manager, DDL Equipment

T his is our 2nd time exhibiting – it’s a fantastic opportunity to access quality prospects all in one place.

Tracey Neale, Sales Product Manager, Kluber Lubrication

I’m blown away by the quality of the stalls. The exhibitors have really gone all out. The technology on show is also amazing

Jaco du Preez, Director, Khanyaled

This year the new technology on display is just fantastic.

Martina Mohoje, Accelor Mittal

This is my first time at the show and I have learnt a lot – it was very worth my while coming here.

Thapelo Maepa, Accelor Mittal

Copperbelt Mining Trade Expo and Conference 2016

Testimonial angle

I believe all the participants are unanimous in stating that this was one of the best shows to date in the Copper Belt – we commend you and your team and we trust you will maintain the same high standard in 2017! We’d like to retain the same two stands D6/7 for next year 2017.

Guy Gibbon of Eml-Eis

I would like to thank you and all your event coordinators for a great show, which was very well organised and put together. We had a very positive outcome and received well in excess of 60 leads.

Allessandro Zumerle, Operations Director, Acrow

The 2016 CBM-TEC show in Kitwe was a really excellent platform to introduce new products into the Zambian market. Our stand attracted many high level delegates and decision makers. We are confident of closing some deals as a result of following up on leads generated during the exhibition.

Ian McHardy, Director, Accutrak

The show has been really beneficial to us and we have received some really positive leads. We will definitely be attending the 2017 expo. Thank you to your team for putting on a great show.

Mike Iward, Account Manager, DGI Trading

This is our first expo in Zambia and we are overwhelmed! We have had so many feet through our stand with many potential leads. The organisers were fantastic and went out of their way to assist us. We thoroughly enjoyed it and will definitely be back in 2017.

Karen Morgia, Sales Executive, Unlimited Connections

As a third time exhibitor at the show it is a pleasure to be part of a well-planned and executed event, even in harsh economic times. The pre-marketing efforts, change of venue and the change of dates to the end of the week were well received by potential customers.

Rick Esterhuizen, Product Specialist for Africa, Middle East and India, Becker Mining Systems

The event was well attended with a variety of exhibitors and visitors, creating a good platform for networking and identifying potential business leads and new clients. We will exhibit again in 2017.

Jason Ullbright, Country Manager, Schneider Electric

Propak Africa 2016

Testimonial angle

The quality of visitors to the French Pavilion stands was exceptional and exhibitors have generated leads and hope to be signing contracts soon. The show has been great exposure for our French exhibitors. When we booked for the show we had 10 stands and then requested 4 more stands – so in 2019 we’ll hopefully be even bigger!

Camille Tricoire, Senior Trade Advisor for Business France

This year’s show has generated a number of quality leads and overall it has been good for us. We are very positive about Propak Africa and regard it as the preeminent packaging show in Africa which provides a good return on investment. We have already booked our space for Propak Africa 2019.

Cliff Rostoway, Bidvest Afcom

We conducted good business at the show with decent leads and sales. The show also provided us with the opportunity to meet up with many of our clients. We are very happy and the show met our expectations; so much so that we have already signed up for 2019.

Justin Tomsett, Acepak

We showcased our digital printing machines for the first time and they generated much interest. The show produced a good audience that generated good leads for us. Propak Africa works! We will definitely be booking again.

Paul Brouwer, SArepco

We have already confirmed for the next Propak Africa. This year we saw an increase in visitors to our stand and we met all our customers here. We also connected with a number of quality visitors from African countries such as Botswana and Namibia.

Michael Aengenvoort, Rotocon

The quality of the visitors to Propak Africa 2016 has not only been good, but they have also come here with doing business in mind. The show provided us with many leads and we also did some sales. We will be back in 2019.

Rob Franco, Graphix Supply World

This was our best Propak Africa ever and we have been participating in the show for over 12 years. We gained over 100 leads of which at least half are good quality leads. I anticipate of these, that 25% will add up to sales. We will be looking to expand our presence at the next Propak Africa in 2019.

Gerhard van Vuuren, Nampak

The long term investment into Propak Africa is a good one and it is a well-organised show. We will come back.

Lars Frochlich, USS Pactech

We had a lot of good quality people coming through which enabled us to gather a number of good leads. We will be back for the next show in 2019.

Samir Joshi, Shubham Extrusion Technik CS

The previous 2013 show had been very good, but the 2016 Propak Africa was even better. What I liked was the increased number of customers from Africa as this is assisting us to expand our business. We generated excellent leads from the show.

Juanita Stiehlerbreits, Hestico

As a brand building exercise and an opportunity to showcase our big machines, Propak Africa is the ideal event. This year’s show hosted more visitors that were decision makers and this enabled us to generate more leads.

Shaun Pillay, Pyrotec

Propak Africa 2016 was really good and resulted in some fantastic leads for us.

Michelle Penlington, Polyoak Packaging

What was very pleasing about Propak Africa 2016 was the number of visitors from Africa. This was very relevant to our business as we are expanding into the Continent

Lumka Skosana, Festo

The Propak Africa 2016 audience responded well to our vinyl-print-cut solution that we showcased at the show and we sold our machine on day one. We saw many people and also the right people.

Eric Yin, Advanced Machinery (AM)

This was our fourth Propak Africa and we had access to decision makers we would not otherwise have met. Many of the visitors were very interactive.

Anricka Breetzke, Courtlanders

We sold at the show itself and we are waiting to finalise another deal shortly. It was a good show.

Corne Pretorius, Nissei ASB

KZN Industrial 2015

Testimonial angle

KITE is an excellent way of keeping abreast with latest developments in technology and process. It’s a great addition to the KwaZulu-Natal exhibition landscape.

Bill Harrison, Owner – Bill Harrison & Associates

KITE is the ideal place to secure the latest technical information and industrial know-how which engineering practitioners require to be able to take their business to the next level. The exhibition provided ECSA with an opportunity to market the benefits of registration, encouraging people to register with ECSA. This increases ECSA’s visibility and brand awareness to stakeholders.

Mr TC Madikane, ECSA Communication, Information & Marketing (CIM) committee chairperson

From an SAIMC perspective we were very happy with the KITE exhibition and believe it was very good for KZN and the industry as a whole. The show was well organised, the exhibitors went to a lot of trouble with their stands and we understand that the visitor attendance was good, and of a good calibre – both factors contributing to a successful exhibition.

John Owen-Ellis, SAIMC Durban branch

Securex 2016

Testimonial angle

The exhibition exceeded my expectations. I found an impressive array of CCTV and audiovisual equipment that suited my needs.

Zvikomborero Mahembe, Technical Sales & Support Manager – Tick Link Digital Solutions

What a great variety of technologies and services! My specific interest was in card printing systems, which I most definitely had success with and I will be following up on the information I gathered.

Louis Froneman - SANDF

This was a sourcing mission for me. I was very impressed with the balance of international and local products.

Philip de Wet, Executive Manager - Exponant

Interbuild Africa 2016

Testimonial angle

Interbuild Africa has been a worthwhile investment for us, turning new leads into customers. This year was no different. The show was well-coordinated with a helpful committee of organisers who were always willing to assist and offer alternative solutions.

Nkanyiso Msiya, Hilti South Africa

The professionalism demonstrated by the organisers made our first experience at Interbuild a very pleasant one. The show provided us with exciting new opportunities, including a multitude of hot leads, some substantial orders and the prospect of a new partnership. Interbuild Africa certainly brings the right type of people through the doors to achieve business objectives. We felt that it was worth the financial outlay, time and effort it took to bring it all together and look forward to reaping the rewards, as well as participating again in 2018.

Daphne Eva, Stonghold

Interbuild Africa provides an opportunity to touch base in a one-on-one environment with our existing subscribers and additionally, to introduce our service offerings to prospective clients. We launched our new website recently and it was the perfect setting to showcase our new features to the audience. This is a well-run show, openings for additional exposure are presented well in advance, the team is knowledgeable and go the extra mile in assisting exhibitors with making the most of the expo.

Lee Finch, Leads 2 Business

Interbuild Africa has given Builders the opportunity for us to demonstrate our expertise and capability beyond that of the retail market. We are well pleased with the quality of the leads we got as a result of our participation.

Elzette van Niekerk, Builders.

We feel that Specialised Exhibitions Montgomery did a great job, and it was evident that a great deal of marketing had been done to reach a local and African audience. With this in mind the show exceeded all of our expectations in terms of visitor numbers.

David Flury, Bohle Group

Markex 2016

Testimonial angle

Visiting Markex 2016 was a great first time experience for me. It opened up my eyes to so many opportunities in terms of products that I would like to make available to my customers. There was good access to information and I got more out of this experience than I expected. I will come back next year, and will pass on the message.

Shaina Moloi, AKM Projects

Scan Display has exhibited at Markex for 15 years and it has always been very rewarding for us, generating excellent leads. This year’s show was once again an enormous success. We are really looking forward to the launch of Madex in 2017. The show is the ideal platform for us to promote our products and services to our target market - we have already signed up to exhibit!

Justin Hawes, Scan Display
