Mine Entra exhibition kicks off
THE 23rd edition of Zimbabwe’s premier, mining, engineering and transport showcase (Mine Entra) kicks off in Bulawayo today, under the theme, “Mineral Beneficiation: Catalyst for Economic Growth.”
By end of day yesterday, a majority of exhibitors, mainly those from outside Bulawayo and Zimbabwe, were onsite putting final touches to their stands at the venue, the Zimbabwe International Exhibition Centre.
More than 220 exhibitors have confirmed their participation in this year’s show, occupying almost 7 350 square metres of exhibition space, ZITF Company head of marketing and public relations, Ms Stella Nkomo, said in an update.
The figure represents 94 percent of the space made available for sale.
Of these direct exhibitors, 11 are foreign exhibitors coming from the People’s Republic of China, Japan, South Africa and Zambia.
In terms of local participation, Ms Nkomo said 65 percent of the confirmed exhibitors were coming from Harare while 30 percent will come from Bulawayo and the remainder from other cities.
Judging from the type of equipment and products being offloaded and displayed, the exhibition promises to be of high quality, she said.
“The focus of the show will be on maximising on-site connections with a view to harnessing the latent opportunities at every mining value chain touch-point,” said Ms Nkomo.
