Can Africa’s infrastructure be built again in a single generation?

26 November 2014

How are you positioning yourself to ensure participation in Africa’s ever growing infrastructure development requirements?

The World Population Bureau estimates that the population of Africa will rise from 1.1 billion in 2013 to 2.4 billion in 2050.

What this means is that most of the continent’s economies will have to double in size in the next 36 years. If that is to happen, then the stock of Africa’s fixed assets, including all of its residential, industrial and commercial buildings, together with its power and sanitation systems, will have to double in size.

In other words Africa will have to be built again in a single generation!

This will require unthinkable amounts of cement, building materials, construction planning, manpower, products and services to accomplish this momentous task. And, for this reason, infrastructure investment is providing the platform for the strong economic growth trends that will pave the way for businesses like yours to explore a number of exciting commercial and business development opportunities in Africa’s construction sector.

The African Construction and Totally Concrete Conferences and Expos will be returning to Sandton Convention Centre, between 12 and 14 May 2015. The platform facilitates an open dialogue and shares knowledge between key stakeholders involved in the transformation and development of the African construction, cement and concrete industries.

The audience comprises over 600 key decision-makers from Africa’s construction, cement and concrete industries who attend the conference and over 6000 mid-to-senior level executives who visit the expo.

We would very much like to learn more about how you are ramping up with the appropriate tools, knowledge to gain access to the right people and ensure you fortify your participation in Africa’s ever growing infrastructure development requirements.

Ultimately we’d like to explore if The African Construction and Totally Concrete Conferences and Expos could be a good business case match for you, and to support your efforts to future-proof your business in Africa’s new build!
