The Africa Automation Technology Fair will now take place from 07-09 September 2021 at The Ticketpro Dome in Johannesburg, South Africa, delivering a significant ROI for exhibitors and providing a much-needed platform for live and virtual connection between automation technology stakeholders engaged in bringing solutions to Africa.
Carol Weaving, Managing Director for Reed Exhibitions Africa, unpacked the decision taken, following a robust study amongst exhibitors and visitors which indicated strong support for holding a live event in September 2021. This was followed by a virtual round table discussion with key stakeholders earlier today.
“We are delighted to be able to inform our industry partners that we will be going ahead with the Africa Automation Technology Fair Africa as a live event with a hybrid value add, incorporating the best characteristics of a live showcase, and complimented by exciting new virtual features.
“Our sentiment survey revealed that 84% of visitors confirmed they wanted to attend the Africa Automation Technology Fair in 2021 provided the necessary precautions are in place with regards to safety protocols related to the COVID-19 pandemic.” says Weaving.
