aluminum confeThe inaugural Africa Wire, Cable & Tube Conference will be held from 11-13 November 2019 in Johannesburg, South Africa, focussing on the international wire, cable, tube and pipe supply chain

Co-organised by CRU and the Southern African-German Chamber of Commerce and Industry (AHK), the conference will discuss how to boost production and trade in these products throughout the continent.

Metallic wire, cable, tube and pipe products are crucial to industries that are major pillars of economic development across Africa such as mining, power supply and construction.

Nicola Coslett, CEO of CRU Events, said, “This inaugural event is being launched in response to the interest in these rapidly changing markets and offers an ideal opportunity for local industry and key decision-makers to meet with the international supply chain.”

Discussions at the conference will explore the main trends impacting the global steel, copper and aluminium wire, cable and tube products and what this means for Africa. Delegates will also be brought up-to-date on the expected consumption trends within Africa for these products in mining, utilities, oil and gas, construction and infrastructure.

Attendees are set to gain insights into the current political and investment climates across the continent from local experts and international organisations with real case studies. Investors will also have the chance to assess the greenfield and brownfield project showcase presentations.

In other sessions, industry experts will discuss the latest global technological advances in wire, cable, tube and pipe manufacturing, and how this can be applied to African operations.
