Trans Africa unites all transport modalities at one time and place 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 cohesive event.
Trans Africa focuses on seamless 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.
The exhibition will reflect the four pillars of transport – road; rail and pipelines; maritime and aviation. Exhibition categories within these four sectors provide opportunity for the entire transport value chain to exhibit including private sector exhibitors, parastatals, transport authorities and government stakeholders. This is the 2014 face-to-face opportunity for participants in the broader transport sector to engage with government decision makers.
Trans Africa again enjoys the support of the Department of Transport. The Department, together with the organisers of the event, invites all key stakeholders, private sector business partners – 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.
Transport is the heartbeat of South Africa’s economic growth and development and the Trans Africa exhibition and conference presents the ideal platform to bring together public and private sector business with government to discuss investment opportunities within the transport and infrastructure sector.
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.
Mr Andrew Mthembu of Umthombo Exhibitions Events and Promotions, owners of Trans Africa, said: “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”.
