Meet the Cape construction community
The Cape Construction Conference and Trade Expo will be taking place at the CTICC on the 12 – 13 August 2015, which will include a programme that aligns itself with the government mandate of transparency by providing a platform for government and industry to meet. The programme highlights industry needs and challenges and aligns them with government expectations and opportunities. The Cape Construction Conference is solution focused and provides insights into all things construction. 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 and Koran Grover of Koran Grover and Associates in India will share his vast knowledge on sustainable building and how this can be replicated in the South African context. Llewellyn van Wyk of the CSIR will also be on hand to facilitate a session focusing on creating effective cohesion in the construction industry and how collectively the industry can prioritise sustainable building and produce buildings that perform better.
Together with the Cape Construction Conference, the Cape Construction Trade Expo will attract over 3000 construction professionals such as property owners and developers, contractors (small, medium and large), architects, engineers, investors, quantity surveyors and consultants. This is the only expo of its kind for the region and will also feature over 15 hands on training workshops for industry professionals, an exhibition with over 100 different technologies on display, site visits to interesting local construction projects and live demonstrations hosted by Cape Construction Trade Expo exhibitors allowing visitors to get the chance to preview new machinery, vehicles and products. “Cape Construction 2014 exceeded all our expectations. The NHBRC stand received a record total of visitors, creating an unique opportunity to network and to learn and to grow our business” says Agnes van den Berg, National Home Builders Registration Council (NHBRC).
