The Deputy Minister of Public Works, Jeremy Cronin has launched the SACPCMP (South African Council for Project Management and Construction Management Professions) inaugural conference to be held 11-12 April 2013 at Gallagher Convention Centre, Midrand.


Under the theme, ‘Growth, development and transformation in the project and construction management professions,’ as part of a full two-day programme, the event will include such topics as:
  • The role of registered professionals and industry players in the delivery of infrastructure projects in South Africa and the SADC region
  • The South African infrastructure project pipeline for the short, medium and long term and government funded projects requiring private sector investment or public-private partnerships
  • The role of registered professionals and industry in employment creation through the implementation of the Construction Industry Development Boards’ Contractor Development programme
  • How to entrench the use of registered professionals in all construction projects of government to ensure quality infrastructure delivery


The conference will expose industry players and potential new entrants to the government opportunities for infrastructure development over the next 10 years, which will stimulate economic growth to contribute to the growth, development and transformation of the built environment industry. It will create a platform for government to engage industry on key infrastructure projects for SADC integration. Stakeholders can discuss ways and means to rollout a seamless mentorship programme and skills development support for new entrants in the industry and create an enabling environment for growth, development and transformation.

The conference includes an exhibition and extensive sponsorship opportunities for companies wishing to target this valuable audience.
