The Awards incorporate the 6th annual Women in Construction Awards and highlight the year-round pursuit of excellence that is demonstrated through the passion of leading professionals, entrepreneurs and rising stars working in the sector.
AFRICAN SMART CITIES SUMMIT
The African Smart Cities Summit is an annual gathering of thought leaders, the technology providers of tomorrow, the communication integrators which bring them all together, all of whom are driving forward the narrative that will determine the future of Africa’s smart cities.
WoodEX for Africa
Long established as the gateway to Africa’s timber trade, WoodEX for Africa 2020 will be the ultimate machinery, tools and supplies gathering in Africa. An event not to be missed, WoodEX for Africa will be held at Gallagher Convention Centre in Midrand from 09 – 11 June 2020, alongside the 2nd edition of the Deck & Flooring Expo and co-located with Africa’s biggest construction expo, African Construction Expo.
DECK & FLOORING EXPO
Deck & Flooring Expo is Africa’s only expo focusing on the decking and flooring industries. The inaugural expo, held alongside WoodEX for Africa in 2018, received a positive welcome, and industry feedback indicated that a focused trade show for this industry is crucial to expand and explore business opportunities locally and into the rest of Africa.
STAKEHOLDER ENGAGEMENT FORUM
The prestigious Stakeholder Engagement Forum addresses the challenge of professional and academic engagement with ordinary people, small contractors, architects and underprivileged groups operating in Africa’s built environment.
The session is free to attend for all visitors and exhibitors.
