The NAACAM Show aims to play a pivotal role in galvanising the industry around the clear vision of the SA Automotive Masterplan (SAAMP). The practical and growth oriented Conference Programme, delivered by local industry leaders and global experts, will focus on unpacking the practicalities of the SAAMP and how firm-level challenges and opportunities can be addressed. The Conference themes address the market opportunities, rapidly changing product and process technologies and the critical interrelated issues of competitiveness, transformation and localization.
A number of Conference sessions and technical demonstrations will take place on the Exhibition floor in the Media and demonstration centre.
A focus throughout the initiative is the development of new entrants to the industry in order to support the deepening of the value chain. The Conference Programme, therefore, includes a series of Transformation focused Launch activities:
- The Women in Automotive Dialogue
- The Emerging Supplier Engine Room
- The Youth in Automotive Skills Platform
