NAACAM Show 2019: The premier automotive manufacturing growth, technology, transformation & stakeholder engagement forum on the African continent.
Leaders of the automotive and component manufacturing sector, the largest manufacturing sector in South Africa and Africa gather biennially to discuss, showcase, engage and network around the big issues and opportunities in the sector.
The main objectives of the NAACAM Show are to deliver a premier event which:
- Facilitates localisation, intra-African trade and investment linkages, and exports from sectors determined to be globally competitive;
- Enables Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) and technology partnerships;
- Promotes the development and growth of Black-owned suppliers in South Africa; and
- Facilitates outcomes-based dialogue
Delivering the vision of the South African Automotive Masterplan
The SA Automotive Masterplan has a vision of significantly deeper levels of local content (40% currently to 60% in 2035) on steadily increasing local production volumes (600 000 currently to 1,2 million in 2035).
A key objective of the NAACAM Show 2019 is to deliver significant localisation benefits. This is achieved not only through the convergence of the industry, significant networking and exhibition of capabilities but primarily through pre-arranged buyer-supplier meetings. Foreign Direct Investors and Technology partners of specific relevance to sourcing decisions between 2020 and 2023 will be hosted. Please contact the organisers to nominate participants.
The SA Automotive Masterplan also has significant ambitions around regional market development. To support this ambition the NAACAM Show will in 2019 look to welcome a significant number of Sub Saharan African stakeholders, partners and manufacturers whose growth ambitions are critically linked to industrial development.
