Organisers of the NAACAM Show, scheduled to take place in April next year in Durban, say the event will showcase the capabilities of South Africa’s automotive industry and, in particular, its component sector;
The event, held bi-annually, will incorporate a conference featuring top class experts on automotive-related issues and is aimed at helping to promote localisation of automotive components at both OEM and Tier level.
According to the organisers, one of the key attractions of the show will be the networking opportunities it affords suppliers of capital equipment, logistics and other services to interact with component manufacturers.
“The event also focuses on linking and developing B-BBEE suppliers in the automotive supply chain, and attracts a number of global OEM purchasing managers,” says a spokesman.
“NAACAM views the show as a powerful platform for trade, investment and meaningful engagement between suppliers and buyers and is closely aligned with the objectives of the Automotive Supply Chain Competitiveness Initiative (ASCCI) and the Department of Trade and Industry to grow local value added, exports, employment and GDP.”
