Cape Construction Conference and Trade Expo to deal with opportunities and challenges in WC

The Cape Construction Conference and Trade Expo is the only event that deals specifically with the opportunities and challenges of the Western Cape construction Industry. In its 3rd year, the Cape Construction Conference and Trade Expo is the must attend event for industry stakeholders who are interested in learning about the latest trends and development in the construction.

The World Bank’s Doing Business in South Africa 2015 report recently named Cape Town as the most conducive city for the construction industry in South Africa. This undoubtedly has a ripple effect on the entire province, making the Western Cape the prime province to invest and grow in. The Western Cape has earmarked R17.3 billion for infrastructural public works and investor confidence in the province’s property development sector has seen a significant boom.

The entire construction value chain has a crucial role to play in the Western Cape and the Cape Construction Conference and Trade Expo provides the rare opportunity of engaging these stakeholders under one roof. The Cape Construction Conference focuses on the strategic and technical elements of construction, with an audience that consists of architects, engineers, quantity surveyors, contractors, builders, property developers, procurement managers and government our content speakers directly to the construction industry. This year’s programme focuses on creating lasting synergies and collaborative opportunities for all stakeholders that not only grows the industry, but also has a positive effect on the individual company’s bottom line.

Cape Construction Conference headlines industry heavy-weights such as MEC of Agriculture, Economic Development and Tourism, Alan Winde, who will be discussing government opportunities in the province and how government aims to minimise red tape, MEC of Human Settlements Bonginkosi Madikizela who will look at the opportunities available for the construction industry within human settlements, and MEC of Transport and Public Works Donald Grant who will highlight how his department and the private sector can work together to meet key infrastructural goals. 

The Cape Construction Trade Expo is the ultimate marketing experience for suppliers and solution providers to the construction industry. Boasting over 100 exhibitors, this trade expo plays host to suppliers and solution providers involved in pre-construction, construction and post construction phases of the construction cycle. Chemicals, tools, equipment, finishes, materials and contracting services suppliers will be on hand showcasing their latest technologies and solutions.

The Cape Construction Conference provides a rare holistic look into the construction industry with a major focus on megatrends, solutions and opportunities. It shines a spotlight on all key areas of construction from procurement to energy efficiency and project cost efficiency. Together with the trade expo that showcases all industry solution providers through the entire project cycle, Cape Construction Conference and Trade Expo is truly a must attend for the construction industry.
