Africa Automation Technology Fair 2021 aims at bringing the African Continent to South Africa

- Advertisment -

Headlined as a new immersive industrial automation and technology experience, the 2021 Africa Automation and Technology Fair will be focusing on bringing industrialists and entrepreneurs from African countries to South Africa.  The exhibition will be held at the Ticktetpro Dome in Northgate, Johannesburg from 18 to 20 May 2021.

The exhibition and associated workshops have for the past few years shown wide acceptance and support from industry and have grown year on year in size and attendance.  The project manager of Reed Exhibitions’ technology and business events said the company is planning several new innovations for 2021. “With the fourth industrial revolution (4IR) having taken hold in South Africa, we believe that there was a gap in the show’s offering which has prompted us to add technology and communication to the event. We have appropriately renamed the fair African Automation Technology Fair.”

As part of bringing the continent to the event, a Hosted Africa Buyer Programme has been introduced.  Industrialists and entrepreneurs from major African countries will be selected, with buying power as a key element, and invited as VIPs to the fair. They will be matched with South Africa companies to discuss export potential for South African products and services.

The fair will offer three different workshops and has created a technology demonstration zone and a business connection zone. It supports several initiatives to bring exhibitors and current and future customers, both local and African, together. Exhibition space is still available. For information call 011 549 8300
