Over two thousand people were fortunate enough to experience a most informative and relevant expo this year — from 31 October to 02 November, the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) hosted the Cape Construction Expo through which everything relating to construction was showcased.
Leaders in the field of construction presented various workshops in the hall of the CTICC, issuing vital information about the latest technological advances and trends in the industry. It was not only commercial contractors who made up the attendance — architects, residential property owners and project managers also benefited from the expo.
However, one of the highlights of the expo came from a stand just across the work shop area from which lights and sounds were emitted and resonated throughout the hall — an electrical distribution company, Voltex, whose presence at this expo was of necessary importance because its displayed products are key to any construction project.
“What made Voltex stand out, besides our customer-interactive energy efficient stand, was the fact that it was the only electrical distribution company at the expo,” explains Shawn Roets from Voltex, Western Cape.
This leader in the electrical distribution industry presented an array of technologically-advanced products, such as the LSis 18-way populated distribution board as well as Lighting fixtures and CFL’s, with downlights.
“The Elepod and the Sirenco Blaster really caught the attention of the attendees,” says Roets, explaining that the blast from the Sirenco Blaster, “turned heads in intrigue.”
The Cape Construction Expo was a general success, not just for customer-interaction and education, but also for the industry in particular — says Roets,“The best way to ensure a project runs efficiently is by using superior products, and from distributors who have a firm foot in the industry — As a founding member of SafeHouse Voltex takes pride in being a company that ensures it stocks superior and cost effective energyefficient products.”
