The first Captains of Construction forum is set to take place next month and it will see high-level decision makers and stakeholders, in the public and private sector discussing key issues in infrastructure development and construction in South Africa.
Hosted by Max du Preez, South African Author, Columnist and Documentary Filmmaker, the forum seeks to promote growth in the region’s construction industry through the collaboration of different stakeholders across the board.
Private sector participants will personally engage with policy makers and pose the questions that will allow them to determine their future path in the industry.
This will allow government stakeholders to balance expectations and for private participants to gain a better understanding of the regulatory environment within which they are operating and how they can adapt to ensure that their full potential is met.
National and provincial government representatives will be in attendance, along with high-level representatives from select associations and executives of financial Institutions, consultancies, law firms, EPC companies and cement manufacturers.
Launching at the forum is a special publication entitled, Captains of Construction Leaders Book; 100 People at the Steer of Infrastructure Development in Southern Africa.
The book showcases South Africa’s most influential figures that are driving infrastructure development and construction in the country and region.
Not only will this prestigious feature serve as the definitive guide to the industry, but also give insight as to where industry leaders believe the country and continent is headed.
The forum is co-located with the African Construction and Totally Concrete Expos, which is expected to see over 6000 attendees from approximately 1000 companies cross its threshold. says Anita Kruger, Executive Director of Captains of Construction.
