As an exhibitor at the South African Auto Week, the experience was nothing short of exhilarating, marked by valuable connections, strategic thinking games, and an engaging atmosphere that transcended the boundaries of the automotive industry.

In the fast-paced world of the automotive industry, participation in events like the South African Auto Week can be a game-changer for companies aiming to make a mark. This year, Inqubeko Institute not only seized the opportunity to exhibit but also navigated the event with strategic finesse, leaving a lasting impression on delegates and industry leaders alike.

A Stand Among Giants

Inqubeko had an opportunity to share a stand with Toyota South African Motors. The joint presence attracted a swarm of delegates, offering the Inqubeko exhibitors a valuable chance to connect with potential clients and Toyota employees. This collaboration helped create a dynamic and bustling atmosphere around the booth, drawing attention from all corners of the event.

Strategic Mind Games that Drove Engagement

Beyond the gleaming vehicles and cutting-edge technology, our booth offered an interactive experience with strategic thinking games. Delegates eagerly participated, fostering a lively atmosphere that went beyond traditional business discussions. The games not only entertained but also provided a platform for meaningful conversations about the future of the automotive sector and possible collaborations.

Inspiring the Next Generation

Beyond the business suits and discussions, Inqubeko embraced the chance to inspire young minds. High school learners from nearby schools from previously disadvantaged areas were welcomed to the booth, where they learned about the industry and had an opportunity to learn about our maths and science app that we use in our High School Leader Development Programmes. This commitment to education sowed the seeds for a future workforce passionate about automotive innovation.

Recognising the importance of nurturing the next generation, we made use of the opportunity  to conduct interviews with learners. This not only provided insights into the aspirations and perspectives of the youth but also allowed us to showcase our commitment to mentorship and talent development.

One of the highlights of the event for Inqubeko was the young talent that is currently in the Toyota Manufacturing Academy finishing of their studies to enter the automotive world with Toyota. These learners were part of our Future of Manufacturing Programme in 2021. Seeing and hearing how much this whole journey has changed their lives and their families was inspirational, to say the least.

Networking with Peers

The event wasn't just about showcasing our offerings but also a chance to explore what others in the industry were bringing to the table. Approaching neighbouring stands sparked conversations, sharing insights, and discovering potential collaborations. The diversity of ideas and innovations showcased across the exhibition floor added a layer of inspiration to the entire experience.

Making Waves with Industry Giants

The event provided a golden opportunity for us to connect with major industry players. These interactions elevated the company's profile and laid the groundwork for potential collaborations and business relationships with giants in the automotive sector.

In conclusion, the SA Auto Week was not just a showcase of vehicles and technologies but a vibrant platform for collaboration, knowledge exchange, and investment in the future. The strategic partnership, interactive games, engagement with learners, networking with industry leaders, and insightful interviews all contributed to an unforgettable experience that will undoubtedly shape our future endeavours in the dynamic world of automotive innovation.

Thank you once again, Toyota South Africa Motors, for the honour of sharing a stall with you as a clear leader in the automotive industry. We are looking forward to the next event!
