Cova Advisory is again supporting the Western Cape Manufacturing Indaba, which is being held at the Cape Town International Convention Centre on the 6th of November.

As well as being a sponsor of the event, Cova will be an active participant, with input from Cova Advisory co-founder Tumelo Chipfupa.

Manufacturing is the second biggest sector in the Western Cape and contributes about 15% to the South African manufacturing sector output. The province’s agro-processing sector has shown resilience during tough economic times, and its renewables and green tech industries have received significant investments in the past five years.

A sustainable growth trajectory for the province’s manufacturers is being established through a focused collaborative effort by both government and business to strongly support the province’s manufacturing sectors and to marshal domestic resources for increasing investment in the real economy.

The annual Manufacturing Indaba Western Cape brings together provincial manufacturers and businesses to explore growth opportunities, find out about the latest manufacturing incentives and trends, and provide a platform for networking and collaboration.


The conference programme will include plenary sessions as well as debate sessions to unpack and encourage active participation at the event

  • The exhibition provides an opportunity for manufacturers to showcase their expertise, to network with industry peers and to meet business suppliers
