"Gearing-up" for 2019

The National Association of Automotive Component and Allied Manufacturers (NAACAM) is pleased to announce that plans for the NAACAM Show 2019 are well underway. It is expected that the host city and venue will soon be announced as a host bidding process was deemed appropriate to give all major component manufacturing hubs (Nelson Mandela Bay; eThekwini; eKhurhuleni and Tshwane) an opportunity to host the NAACAM Show in 2019.

Inaugural NAACAM Show – 10 months on…

When we signed up for the first ever NAACAM show to be held at the ICC in Durban on the 5-7 April 2017, we were not really certain of our expectations, little did we know that the show itself would prove to be one of the best investments we would make!

Welcome from Dave Coffey, NAACAM President

A unified effort is required from all Sub-Saharan automotive stakeholders, including governments, to respond to the challenges and realise the opportunities facing local manufacturers.

In the context of weak local new vehicle sales, an increase in the range and volumes of local manufactured components is essential to the survival and growth of component manufacturing companies in South Africa and Sub Saharan Africa. The SA Automotive Masterplan sets out a unifying vision for the future of the industry. The NAACAM Show has a large ambition in driving these objectives.

We were very pleased at the positive reports from participants in the inaugural NAACAM Show 2017 and we have significant ambitions to deliver even more value at the NAACAM Show 2019. I hope that you will join me at this important initiative.

What we want to achieve

Facilitate localisation,
intra-Africa trade linkages,
and exports from sectors determined to be globally competitive

Enable Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) and & technology partnerships

Promote development and growth of Black-owned suppliers

Deliver outcomes-based dialogue.
