About Local Southern African Manufacturing Expo

The Local Southern African Manufacturing Expo was launched in 2018 to provide a platform for local manufacturers and service providers to showcase their capabilities to both the local and global markets.

The inaugural event in May 2019 was a great success, bringing over 3700 visitors to source the best of what Southern Africa has to offer.

Adding to the total visitor experience were a number of value-added features that offered a wealth of knowledge-sharing on current trends, technology, practical business advice and legislation.
