With exhibition space filling up quickly and lots of outdoor activities being added to the programme, the inaugural Mega-T Expo looks set to delight and excite both exhibitors and visitors to the show. The trailer, trucking and transport focused expo makes its début on 6 and 7 October 2022 at the Diamantvallei Landgoed showgrounds, 20km east of Pretoria. It is being hosted by the KragDag organisers and powered by the Road Freight Association (RFA).
Solutions on show
Created to showcase the latest innovations and solutions for the trailer, trucking and transport industries, the exhibition will feature products and services covering trucks, trailers, vehicle tracking, tyres, security, parts, maintenance, finance, insurance, navigation systems, fleet management, branding, media and refuelling systems.
Show organiser HP Steyn of KragDag says that the industry support for the event has been excellent and continues to grow. “It’s very encouraging to see the quality of exhibitor signing on, as well as the diversity of offerings that will be on show”.
RFA Chief Executive Officer Gavin Kelly echoed Steyn’s sentiments, adding: “Transport operators are under constant pressure to increase their efficiencies, drive operating costs down, streamline their operations and explore new technologies that will assist them to gain a competitive edge. The Mega-T Expo offers an excellent platform for exploring solutions.”
A number of demonstrations, launches and activations are scheduled over the two-day event, including:
