VENUE: Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC)
The Aluminium Federation of South Africa (AFSA) is one of the more active aluminium industry associations in the world and has, since 1981, been involved in increasing the awareness and use of aluminium in Southern Africa.
AFSA offers its Members a wide variety of services, the most notable of which are technical information and advice, education, training and skills upgrading, a range of publications and market industry and business development support.
In line with the AFSA’s vision of “A Growing, Self-sufficient, Sustainable, Competitive, and Innovative SA Aluminium industry,” AFSA is planning to host AFSA International Aluminium Conference and Exhibition, taking place on the 26-27 October 2022 at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC), in the port city of the southwest coast, on a peninsula beneath the imposing Table Mountain. The central theme of the conference is: “Aluminium – Lightweight, Durable and Sustainable.”
The conference forms part of AFSA’s comprehensive strategic plan of positioning itself in the South African aluminium industry in the short, medium, and long term as a significant source of technical information and advisory services on all matters relating to aluminium. Furthermore, AFSA aims to provide networking opportunities, educate, and showcase the South African aluminium industry’s capacity and capabilities as the supplier of aluminium of global stature. At the same time, as an aluminium industry as a body, AFSA is committed to sustainable production practices, preventing environment degradation and resource efficiency.
The conference as scheduled, represents a prime opportunity to network, generate new contacts, cement existing relationships, and develop the aluminium industry through the latest information on the aluminium industry’s technology advancements and competitiveness. In addition, the conference aims to offer cutting-edge presentations and academic papers on major topics including Casting, Fabrication, Surface finishing, Factories of the future, and the South African Aluminium Industry Roadmap from current industry experts, professionals, and academics. This event will offer delegates further networking opportunities, starting with a site visit on the (25th of October) with an exciting site factory trip to Guala Closures, one of the market leaders in the production of aluminium and non-refillable closures. We aim to conclude the conference festivities with an all day tour of some of the most prestigious wineries in Stellenbosch and Franschhoek on the (28th October).
