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.
