Supported by the Western Cape Government and the City of Cape Town, the 7th annual Cape Construction Expo and 6th Cape Industries Showcase takes place from 11-12 September 2019 at Sun Exhibits, GrandWest.
Over the course of two days, more than 5 000 industry professionals and over 120 exhibitors from both the construction and maritime industries will get together to meet buyers and sellers. In addition, attendees will have an opportunity to discuss challenges and seek opportunities in interactive stakeholder engagement forums and improve their skills through CPD accredited training workshops, presented by experts in their respective fields.
Opportunities for the construction sector
The construction sector contributes R23-billion to the Western Cape economy annually, creating approximately 160 000 jobs. The 7th Cape Construction Expo will showcase the full construction cycle over eight dedicated sector zones including building interiors and finishes, construction tools and building materials, mechanical, electrical and plumbing plant machinery and vehicles, smart construction, concrete, windows, doors and facades, pumps, valves and pipes.
Alongside the expo construction industry professionals can attend the Stakeholder Engagement Forum on 12 September where, among others, MEC Tertius Simmers, Minister of the Department of Human Settlements of the Western Cape Government and Jeremy Wiley, former president of Cape Chamber of Commerce and Industry, will discuss inner city transformation, provincial investment, development opportunities and overcoming challenges to build the Western Cape together.
Facilitating skills development and knowledge share
A big draw card at both the Cape Construction Expo and Cape Industries Showcase is the free-to-attend training workshops which are presented throughout the shows. Here, industry experts assist us in our mission to facilitate skills development and knowledge-share at the event.
CPD accredited workshops are available for architects, civil and building contractors, marine engineers, naval architects, ship building/repair, procurement managers, safety managers and more.
