The show will be hosted in partnership with the Tshwane Economic Development Agency (TEDA) at the Sun Bet Arena at Time Square Casino in Pretoria.

According to Renai Moothilal, NAACAM’s Executive Director, “The NAACAM Show was the ‘first of its kind’ when it launched in 2017 and convened key stakeholders in the South African automotive manufacturing sector in an events platform with a dedicated focus on facilitating localisation, trade and transformation in South Africa’s highly diverse OEM value chains.”

Since the last show, the dynamics of the South African automotive sector have changed significantly owing to global supply chain disruptions and the adoption of a new automotive incentive framework. “Component suppliers have made progress in unlocking new local content, driving investment and acquiring new technologies to support their OEM customers’ requirements. The NAACAM Show 2023 will provide an opportunity to showcase these best practices and will also provide opportunities for component suppliers and stakeholders to better understand the key drivers and trends in the sector,” said Moothilal.

The NAACAM Show 2023 will include a two-day exhibition and a half-day thought-leadership conference. Participants can look forward to a number of exciting new parallel events and activities.
