BAUMA CONEXPO AFRICA moves to Johannesburg Expo Centre


  • More halls and outdoor exhibition space available
  • Next BAUMA CONEXPO AFRICA to take place September 15 to 18, 2015


BAUMA CONEXPO AFRICA is moving to a new venue: The next International Trade Fair for Construction Machinery, Building Material Machines, Mining Machines and Construction Vehicles will take place from 15 to 18 September, 2015 at the Johannesburg Expo Centre (JEC).


Elaine Crewe, CEO of BC Expo South Africa, understands the advantages of the new venue: “The Johannesburg Expo Centre is one of the largest trade fair venues in Africa. If required, there are over 50,000 square meters of fully equipped hall space and around 60,000 square meters of outdoor exhibition space available. Therefore, BAUMA CONEXPO AFRICA has the opportunity to grow.”


The set-up at JEC meets the logistical and infrastructural requirements of a construction machinery and mining machines trade fair such as BAUMA CONEXPO AFRICA. In addition to this, JEC provides exhibitors and visitors ample parking space and five star facilities.
