After hosting its first launch event, the show organisers have announced that the secondÂ Trans AfricaÂ exhibition and conference will take place from 7-9 October 2014, at theÂ Johannesburg Expo Centre,Â Nasrec.
â€œTrans Africa aims to unite all transport modalities featuring comprehensive product groupings including road, rail, pipeline, logistics, sea and air transport exhibits. It is the ideal market platform for these sectors providing buyers with an opportunity to see all transport products and services at a single event,â€ says Andrew Mthembu of Umthombo Exhibitions Events and Promotions. â€œIts focus is on integration of transport infrastructure and ancillary systems within South Africa and beyond its borders into Africa. The event will also explore investment opportunities within the sub-Saharan region.
Trans Africa again enjoys the support of the Department of Transport. The Department, together with the organizers of the event, invites all key stakeholders, private sector business partners â€“ both local and international, and the Ministers of Transport as well as transport colleagues from all over the African continent to come together to make the 2014 edition of Trans Africa the most successful ever.
Building on the inaugural Trans Africa Conference the theme for 2014 is Integrated Transport Development. The conference takes place on 7 and 8 October and sees a fresh approach with high impact early morning and plenary sessions focused on industry trends and forecasts followed by panel discussions for the various disciplines including road, rail, sea and air transport.
“The refreshed approach offers delegates the chance to put knowledge into action immediately by visiting the show floor and making contact with businesses offering the latest technology, developments, products, systems and services first-hand,” concludes Mthembu.
