As the first bauma Africa, International Trade Fair for Construction Machinery, Building Material Machines, Mining Machines and Construction Vehicles, is to take place from 18 to 21 September this year, the organiser and its travel partner, Highline Tours & Travel, have put together several tailor made packages for attendees travelling to Johannesburg for the event.

The organisers are expecting over 500 exhibitors on 60 000 m2 of exhibition space at the first African-based event, which is taking place at Gallagher Convention Centre. In terms of visitors attending the event, the organisers estimate the number of more than 15 000, comprising of both international and local visitors.

"Africa is an emerging market and it is the growing importance of the continent, as well as South Africa's status as the gateway into Africa, that led to the first bauma Africa event," says MMI South Africa CEO Elaine Crewe.

She explains that aside from local exhibitors, the event will house nine country pavilions for 200 of the key international exhibitors from Austria, China, Finland, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Korea, Northern Ireland and Spain.

Highline Tours & Travel MD Frikkie Reynders says the company wants to give attendees a chance to experience South Africa. "For many of the attendees, this will be their first visit to South Africa, and so we want them to use this opportunity to see more of our country."

"Therefore, we have created tailor made travel packages for attendees, including hotel stays and Gautrain travel services, to and from the bauma Africa event."

The hotels are situated in the Midrand, Sandton, Centurion, Rosebank and Melrose areas, as well as in and around the O.R Tambo international airport in Johannesburg.

In the Sandton area hotels featured in the bauma Africa package include the Da Vinci Hotel, the Hilton Hotel, the Intercontinental Towers, the Radisson Blu, The Michelangelo Hotel, the Radisson Blu Gautrain Hotel, the Courtyard Sandton, the Holiday Inn Sandton, The Maslow Hotel, City Lodge, Garden Court Sandton, Park Inn Sandton and the Town Lodge.

In the Centurion and Hatfield areas in Pretoria, hotels include the Centurion Lake Hotel, City Lodge and the Road Lodge.

For travellers wanting to stay in the Rosebank, Parktown and Melrose Arch areas, hotels include The Courtyard Rosebank, The Crowne Plaza and the Sunnyside Park Hotel.

In and around the O.R Tambo International Airport hotels include the Peermont D'Oreale Grande, the Peermont Mondior hotel, City Lodge Barbara Road, City Lodge O.R Tambo, the Peermont Metcourt Hotel and Peermont Metcourt Suites, as well as Town Lodge Airport.

"We are expecting visitors from all over the world, and have already received confirmation from attendees as far as Singapore. With Highline Tours & Travel being active in the African tourism industry since 1995, they are a perfect partner for us leading up to the event," says Crewe.

Apart from the hotel and travel packages, Highline Tours & Travel also offer a range of tour services which bauma Africa attendees can take advantage of.

"These tours can be custom designed to fit the customers budget and requests, and are designed to showcase the beauty of our continent," says Reynders.
