Durban will host the 2nd annual KZN Construction Expo on 7 and 8 February, providing the only multi-disciplinary show for KwaZulu-Natal’s built environment.
Taking place at the Durban Exhibition Centre, the event features seven dedicated exhibition zones including Concrete; Construction; Digital Construction; Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing; Smart Buildings / Eco Build; Surfaces and Finishes and lastly Tools and Equipment.
The KZN Construction Expo is an unprecedented opportunity to access the province’s building and construction value chain, and focuses on buyer and seller engagements through free-to-attend content and face-to-face interactions all under one roof.
With over 2 500 attendees expected, ranging from small contractors to architects, quantity surveyors, property developers, government and industry associations, this interactive platform not only facilitates new investment into infrastructure but also builds capacity for local architects, construction professionals and small to medium sized contractors through free education and technical skills development during training workshops.
The event is proud to present KZN’s first ever Contractor’s Corner – which will provide free practical training to over 1 000 small and medium contractors.
Another highlight is the KZN Stakeholder Engagement Forum which will unite the province’s development leaders including Master Builders Association KwaZulu-Natal, the Durban Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the KZN Growth Fund and others to enhance communication between public and private sector towards the realisation of delivering more local construction projects on budget and on time.
The Architectural Essentials Corner will provide continuing professional development for architectural professionals from the South African Institute for Building Design (SAIBD) and is hosted as part of the KZN Construction Expo. The Architectural Essentials Corner provides CPD points and progressive learning for architectural professionals through a collaborative forum for the transformation of the architectural profession in the pursuit of excellence.
