#AFE2022 - OVERVIEW

Since they were first staged in 1985, the Awards have become the undoubted highlight of the precast concrete industry’s calendar. The main purpose for the Awards is to recognise excellence in the use of precast concrete across its numerous and varied applications and to honour those professionally associated with these applications.


Held biennially, this competition is open to all individuals, partnerships and companies in South Africa and neighbouring countries, and will accept entries including the use of one or more precast concrete element, produced by a CMA member.
 

The countdown for the Concrete Manufacturers Association’s 2022 Awards for Excellence competition has begun.   2020 and 2021 however brought us “the new normal”.  We experience new methods of meeting and content delivery and for this reason the format of the Awards for Excellence changed.  We enter the realm of virtual content delivery and marketing.  This sets opportunities with regards to market reach which was never experienced before.  The 2022 Awards for Excellence will be presented on electronic plaforms through various social media marketing networks and audience interaction.
 

We are filled with excitement.  This will be the biggest industry market segment (precast concrete) collective virtual marketing event, to the benefit of  CMA Producer Members, which the industry has seen to date!  We hope our excitement is contageous!  We urge you to participate in this fantastic opportunity.
