Electra Mining Botswana, a major industry event held at Gaborone, is home to a leading mining, industrial and power-generation expo. Powered by Electra Mining Africa, this niche trade show has been specially designed to maximise business growth in Botswana.
Taking place at the Gaborone Fairgrounds from September 10 to 12, this will be an all-encompassing event showcasing the latest technologies, machinery, products and solutions related to mining, industrial and power generation.
The recently launched A-OSH Expo Botswana is taking place alongside this event. The country has a growing need for occupational health and safety (OHS) awareness and its importance. There is currently no OHS Act in Botswana and employers are not compelled to comply with OHS standards.
“A-OSH Expo Botswana is an ideal vehicle to promote OHS in Botswana,” says event director Charlene Hefer.
“We are excited to have partnered with the local Botswana company, TRM Group, with its focus on promoting a safe, healthy and environmentally friendly workplace, and increasing health and safety awareness in the country as a whole,” she continues.
In addition to new products and live demonstrations, a full programme of free-to-attend seminars will also take place alongside the event. Hefer says: “The seminars will provide an excellent learning opportunity for exhibitors and visitors at the show. Speakers will address a variety of topics pertinent to both industries, and will add value with their knowledge and expertise.”
“With its local and international participants and leading brands on show, Electra Mining Botswana and A-OSH Botswana Expo will be of benefit to exhibitors who want to expand their footprint in Botswana and also to visitors who want to source the latest products and services, and to learn about new technologies and solutions,” concludes Hefer.
