Mine Entra is Zimbabwe’s biggest, most reputable exhibition for the mining, engineering and transport and their associated industries. Mid-year timing of the event is for maximum convenience and corresponds to the industry’s main buying and tendering period. The event open to traders and business visitors only was held at the Zimbabwe International Exhibition Centre (ZIEC) from 20-22 July.
Mine Entra 2016 was the 21st edition of the trade show and was a reflection of a two-decade long investment in building a relevant and targeted event that helped uncover Zimbabwe’s wealth and potential. Mine Entra 2016 ran under the theme “Unearthing Opportunities,” and highlighted the growth opportunities and prospects in the region’s mining industry and related sectors.
Due to the inflammable nature of some exhibits and of the stand building materials, we request that exhibitors and visitors adhere to a strict non-smoking policy in the hall.
