The African construction industry is the vital foundation necessary to support the continent’s infrastructural development requirements. The outlook for Africa’s concrete and cement sector in particular is promising, given the strong economic outlook, long-term demographic growth and rising urbanisation, all of which is boosting demand for cement and concrete.
As the industry continues to evolve, so do the opportunities at Africa’s leading construction and concrete events. The African Construction and Totally Concrete Expo taking place 9 – 11 May 2016 at the Gallagher Convention Centre in Johannesburg, South Africa is the definitive platform to showcase your solutions, increase brand awareness, engage with key decision makers and position yourselves as the industry leader.
