CAMINEX 2023 takes place from 30th May to 1st June 2023 at the Kitwe Showgrounds under the theme: Copperbelt: Re-ignite. Rebuild. Renew. The Show could not be held in the last three years (2020, 2021 and 2022) due to the devastating impact of Covid-19. The pandemic had its heavy toll on the lives of millions of people in Zambia and around the globe.

The Covid-19 pandemic also had a huge toll on the global economy and the effects still continue to be felt today. Many businesses were affected and continue to be affected even after the various measures taken to curb the pandemic. The pandemic has left a dark shadow on the business outlook and it is for this reason that the organisers of CAMINEX 2023 decided to restart the Show by providing a platform to stimulate business in the Agricultural, Mining, Industrial, and service sectors in and around the Copperbelt.

The Show organisers have brought together the various sectors in our region in order to Re-ignite. Rebuild. Renew the Copperbelt’s business growth and confidence.

Re-ignite: Accept the effects of the last three years and re-ignite confidence that together we can create the spark required in our economy.

Rebuild: Go above and beyond the pre-Covid-19 economic levels so that we come out stronger and rebuild our economy to levels higher than before the pandemic.

Renew: Taking the responsibility to commit and renew our efforts to work efficiently together in order to develop an economy that stands the test of time.

Visitors will benefit from the extensive pool of knowledge available to them from the large number of technical experts on the exhibition stands and through the free-to-attend seminars which will run on the side lines of the exhibition.

The seminars will have presentations on infrastructure development. Commerce, Trade and Industry gurus will lead the business partnership growth forum and economic diversification fora for the Copperbelt

The visitors to the show will in addition to the informative speaker presentations, see a broad showcase of exhibitions. These will include machinery, equipment and consumables as well as have insight into new innovations, technologies, services and solutions.
