Invitation to the Symposium


As interested party in issues and challenges related to earthing (grounding) and the peripheral fields of electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and lightning protection, you are cordially invited to attend the inaugural Earthing Africa Symposium & Exhibition planned for 5 – 9 June 2017 in Johannesburg, South Africa.

This symposium promises to be a knowledgeable experience, packed with technical information and opportunities to learn from, including other experts, and about technology and field experience. Strong emphasis on scientific base maintains the link with academia to do away with the misconception of “earthing as a black art”. In addition, the practical and tutorial sessions are expected to bring high value to both engineers and field personnel.

Whilst your conference topics of interest will keep you pinned in the Gauteng (“Place of Gold”) province, you may also find time to explore the surrounds, with both cultural and historical value. Perhaps also conclude a day with some game viewing.

We look forward to seeing you at Earthing Africa 2017!

Sincerely yours

Dr Pieter H Pretorius, Pr Eng
Symposium Chair
