The International Special Tooling and Machining Association (ISTMA), the world’s largest representative body for global tooling manufacturing, has announced that its next triennial World Conference and General Assembly will be hosted by South Africa in 2023. This is great news for the African tooling industry as ISTMA is the hub of expertise and a key cooperation and knowledge sharing platform for the worldwide Mould, Die, Special Tooling and Precision Machining Industry. The event will create invaluable exposure and networking opportunities for the local industry.
Representatives from global tooling houses and associated industries, industry leaders and business people from 22 countries and 23 ISTMA member associations (made up of more than 8000 companies) will attend the International Association’s 16th World Conference, General Assembly and constituent meetings of regional groupings – ISTMA Europe, Americas, Africa and Asia in Cape Town from 18 to 22 September 2023. The conference themes for the ISTMA 16th World Conference will be sustainable development, technical advances in tooling manufacturing and skills development.
The ISTMA 16th World Conference will coincide with the All Africa Expo and the event will collectively be branded as All Africa Expo ISTMA 2023. The All Africa Expo will give African countries a platform to showcase their tooling manufacturing abilities and investment potential and will offer continental tooling producers exposure to the world’s foremost tooling technology, tooling houses and influential role-players. The All Africa EXPO will be the first platform to boast Africa’s spirit of invention and pockets of manufacturing excellence and will offer unprecedented global networking opportunities to the continent. The All Africa Expo will also offer suppliers an excellent opportunity to gain exposure to African and global tooling markets in a cost-effective way by participating as sponsors and/or exhibitors.
In addition a selection of tours for accompanying partners as well as pre and post conference tours are offered to enable delegates and visitors to further enhance networking opportunities and to explore and experience this beautiful part of the world.
