Argus Africa Roads 2018

Gain a foothold in Africa’s competitive road construction and development industry

Argus Africa Roads 2018 gave attendees the opportunity to build long term business relationships with the most influential decision-makers from across Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Malawi, Zambia, Namibia, Mozambique and more. You could meet with global and regional road construction groups, road authorities, contractors, investment authorities, asphalt, bitumen, aggregates producers, traders and innovative service providers.

The event provided delegates the opportunity to position their organisation as a preferred supplier to the road agencies in attendance. Expert speakers gave a country-by-country assessment of investment and maintenance projects across the region. 

Over three days, there was the unique opportunity to debate and strategise requirements for PPP models, road safety, transformational materials and innovations, bitumen /asphalt and aggregates specification developments, and how to position your organisation to maximise profits.

Request more information about Argus Africa Roads 2019 and do not miss your chance to identify new opportunities in the road construction business, and meet with the senior decision-makers that support the development of a sustainable road network across east, central and Southern Africa.
