Taking place from 12-13 May at the Kitwe Showgrounds in Zambia, the third Copperbelt Mining Trade Expo and Conference (CBM-TEC) will give visitors the opportunity to engage with over 130 leading local and international exhibitors.

Unveiling innovative solutions, latest products and cutting-edge technology, the trade expo this year has an extended outdoor space which will accommodate bigger equipment and more global mining brands with interactive displays and live product demonstrations. “The outdoor setting will allow visitors to touch, test and compare the products and equipment that exhibitors are displaying,” said Event Director Nicole Smith.

“We have also introduced a Power and Water Pavilion this year as both power and water are critical elements in mining operations. The Power Pavilion will cover all aspects of power including generation, transmission and distribution, sustainable energy and application, which will help mining producers solve their electricity supply issues cost effectively. Leading power suppliers and water filtration experts will showcase new products, services, technology and solutions to the Zambian market,” Smith said.

Ian Smith, Country Manager at Bearing Man Group Zambia Ltd (BMG), one of the show’s exhibitors, said: “We aim to grow, support and be part of the Zambian copper mining process. Due to the great success and organisation of previous shows, BMG has been able to promote new product ranges and product awareness. We will be focusing on making Zambia and all its current challenges positive, with inclusivity and open forums of all market sectors.”
