Kitwe, Zambia, December 08, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Some 1500 mining experts are expected at the upcoming Copperbelt Mining Trade Expo and Conference or CBM-TEC in Kitwe, Zambia in April next year at an industry event that has been described as long overdue for the region. In association with the Electra Mining Africa exhibition in Johannesburg, South Africa, CBM-TEC is organised jointly by Specialised Exhibitions Montgomery and Spintelligent.

Nicole Smith is the event director: “Zambia is Africa’s mining hot spot. Compared to other countries, mining makes an unusually large contribution to total export earnings, national investment and total foreign direct investment. The first CBM-TEC, a technical, suppliers and services trade expo, will be held over two days and is unique in that it will focus on adding real value and connectivity to the regional mining industry.”

She continues: “Utilising Specialised Exhibitions Montgomery’s international reach, the exhibition will support the growth of the local mining community and service sector, delivering a significant commercial upside to the region. Spintelligent is the organiser of the iPAD series of mining conferences as well as the publishers of Mining Review Africa.”
