The economic growth in Africa has surpassed all expectations and the rise in population will make Africa a big focus for the next 50 to 100 years. Home to 1.2 billion (up from just 477 million in 1980), Africa is projected by the UN to double to 2.4 billion by the year 2050. Ageing assets and insufficient capacity means that the infrastructure that were built years ago are unable to cope with the population and technology growth. Hence, this presents a huge opportunity in Physical Asset Management, which is what the summit is about.
Now in its 5th edition, come and network with senior decision makers while discovering new products, technologies and solutions for your organisation. This summit is the only event in Africa that deals specifically with the problems and solutions to the lack of maintenance culture (a key aspect of Asset Management), which is a major issue in developing countries.
Codub Consulting, a UK based company plans to host the Asset Summit Africa on the 27th and 28th June 2018. The summit is a cross sector event that aims to attract more than 500 senior professionals from different parts of the world in both the private and public sectors. Expert speakers (local and international) will deliver presentations covering real business case studies that outline the ways in which Asset Management can be effectively implemented and in turn make a real difference to the society and an organisation’s bottom line.
Knowledge of Asset Management will help business owners and managers to learn how to reduce operating costs, increase the economic life of capital equipment, reduce company liability and increase the reliability of systems and components. The workshop will also address organisation culture and people. Some of the sessions will provide a learning platform to introduce participants to the importance of Asset Management including the latest ISO55000.
