Addressing the African utilities’ challenges
ECSA participated in the African Utility Week and Clean Power Africa event. This was a singular must-attend event for the power and water utilities professionals in Africa and the largest global meeting of its kind.
Beyond the top quality learning opportunities presented at this event, an audience of 80+ African utilities plus 5000+ attendees ensured this event maintains its reputation as Africa’s leading power & water industry event. This year the event took place at the Cape Town International Convention Centre from 12 -14 May 2015.
ECSA participated as exhibitors in this event with the intention to make ECSA visible and accessible to its stakeholders and promoting the benefits of registration. This provided a platform for marketing the ECSA brand to unregistered persons and those who do not know about ECSA.
ECSA conducted a workshop “The A-Z of registration with ECSA” which was conducted by Rod Harker.
The attendance to this workshop was overwhelming and just showed how essential it is to have such workshops and engage potential registered persons and those already registered who seek clarity on some aspects of registration, especially the new registration system.
This did provide value for money. ECSA had also booked a media advert on Engineering News for this event. The copy was placed on the Media Lounge which received great exposure to the delegates. ECSA received more value and publicity through an interview of the CEO, Sipho Madonsela which was featured on the Institute for Municipal Engineers of SA (IMIESA) magazine, as the copy was also placed at the media lounge.
