Manufacturing Indaba Claimed

Virtual Conference and Business Matchmaking

We would like to inform you that after consultation with industry partners and taking into account the latest government guidelines and regional travel restrictions, it is with a heavy heart that we have decided to host the 2020 Manufacturing Indaba as a virtual event.  The event will still take place on the 9 – 10 December 2020.

All the Provincial Manufacturing Indaba events and the East Africa edition have been postponed to the second half of 2021.

Our top priority is to provide a safe environment for everyone involved; our customers, attendees, partners and colleagues.There remains a demand for manufacturing industry news and some of the key issues that will be discussed at the 2020 virtual conference include:

  • How to Future Proof your manufacturing business – What does the future of African Manufacturing look like in a current and post COVID-19 world?
  • The Africa Continental Free Trade Agreement and what does this mean for African Manufacturers – How does this influence trade agreements, customs tariffs, tax, etc. to create an African Marketplace
  • Lessons Learned on the Journey to Manufacturing Excellence and how to have a sustainable and profitable manufacturing business in the era of COVID-19?
  • The growing importance of Localisation – How can we build our own local markets to sustain ourselves and grow our local economies in Africa, as a result of COVID-19 and creating an alternate source of supply from the Eastern markets.
