Master Builders South Africa (MBSA), the leading representative body in the building industry, will be hosting their 107th annual congress at the Wild Coast Sun in KwaZulu-Natal from 9 to 12 September 2012.
Under this year's theme of Building South Africa, the MBSA Congress brings together Master Builders Association members, affiliated bodies, decision makers and experts from across the country and encourages interactivity on industry related goals. MBSA has the mandate of promoting best practice, strengthening strategic relationships, interacting with local and national governments and encouraging growth, development and sustainability of the industry. The Congress is an opportunity to address these and other factors within the industry.
Dialogue is encouraged
"We need to come together to find solutions to the challenges faced in order to promote our trade," says MBSA president Danie Hattingh. "Our industry has a significant role to play in growth and transformation and, conjointly, we can maximise this potential."
With the aim of facilitating collaboration between stakeholders in the building arena, delegates can expect a packed programme consisting of stimulating talks from influential speakers, ample opportunity to network and recognition in the health and safety awards. "The congress is not just about listening to speakers, but will also include formalised interactive sessions whereby delegates will have the forum to discuss industry related matters. This is an opportunity to encourage dialogue between industry members across the country," explains Hattingh.
This year, the collaboration will be extended with the inclusion of industry members from other Southern African countries. "Malawi and Cameroon have both confirmed the attendance of representatives and we are excited about the possibilities that could arise from expanding our collaboration beyond South Africa," adds Hattingh.
