The Dti and DMR sponsored two of our members’ to attend the Mining Indaba 2018, held in Cape Town. The Indaba took place on the 5-8 February 2018. Mncedisi Makhamba from Drill Rod Specialist had the following feedback on his experience representing an SMME at the Indaba. “The Indaba was an amazing experience for me, I received valuable information and made good contacts. My advice to SMMEs who wish to participate will be to:

  1. Have a plan , know who you want to see and why, and
  2. Know what is your value proposition and what you can offer prospective partners and customers.”
