This year’s edition of the Mining, Engineering and Transport (MineEntra) exhibition has been postponed. This was announced by Zimbabwe International Trade Fair Company Chairman, Busisa Moyo in a statement yesterday. 

“The Zimbabwe International Trade Fair Company (ZITF) wishes to inform exhibitors, visitors, buyers, delegates and all other stakeholders that the 27th edition of the mining, engineering and transport exhibition, MineEntra2024, originally scheduled for July 17 to 19 2024, in Bulawayo, has been postponed to a date yet to be confirmed,” the company said.

The company indicated that it was in the process of consulting stakeholders to come up with a new and suitable date for the event.

“Consultations regarding suitable dates are underway at the highest level of Government and business leadership. This is to ensure the standard of the show and depth of interactions, discussions and interventions meet the highest standard possible,” Moyo said.

Moyo explained that the event was postponed so that it would not clash with the preparations for the SADC Industrialisation Week which Zimbabwe is set to host from 28 July to 2 August in Harare.

“The decision to reschedule MineEntra was made to avoid any potential conflicts with the upcoming SADC Industrialisation Week, a major regional event which is being hosted in Zimbabwe scheduled for July 28 to August 2 in Harare. The SADC Industrialisation Week is expected to attract significant attention from industry leaders, government officials, and investors throughout the region.

The ZITF Company recognises the importance of both MineEntra and the SADC Industrialisation Week. Holding (the) MineEntra (exhibition) during the same timeframe could potentially result in divided attendance and detract from the impact of each event. Postponing MineEntra will ensure that both events receive the focused participation they deserve, maximizing the opportunities for attendees and exhibitors. This approach will allow participants to fully engage with each event without scheduling conflicts,” the ZITF Company boss said.

Last year the event, which is traditionally held in July, was held in November following inevitable circumstances such as national events like the general elections which were held in August, which affected its events calendar.
