Visitor registration for the upcoming Propak West Africa exhibition and conference is now live; and with a completely SOLD OUT floorplan, it is set to be the biggest edition to date.
With less than three months to go, visitor registration for the region’s leading packaging and print trade show is now live! Taking place from 18 – 20 September 2018 at the Landmark Centre on Victoria Island in Lagos, Nigeria, Propak West Africa will be free to attend for all industry professionals.
Over 4,000 professionals are expected to come together for the 6th edition of West Africa’s biggest and fastest growing packaging and print exhibition. Attendees can expect to see the latest products and solutions from the food and beverage processing, general packaging, plastics and chemicals, cosmetics and toiletries, retail and wholesale, pre-press and publishing, printing and pharmaceutical industries.
The event itself has increased in size by 35% from 2017 and this year the exhibition floor space has completely sold out. Organisers, Afrocet Montgomery, are confident this year’s edition will surpass all expectations and continue to help drive the industries expansion.
George Pearson, Regional Director had this to say on the upcoming event: “We are extremely pleased that the show has sold out, for us its indicative that the market is heading in the right direction and companies are looking to invest with a number of large scale machines being brought into the country so they can be demonstrated live onsite. We’ve got a lot planned this year for the show, not only with regards to content, but also brand new features that we’re sure will give attendees added value.”
Among the leading brands confirmed to be present at this year’s exhibition are Windmoller&Hoelscher, BOBST, Kodak, Krones, Heidelberg, KBA, Piovan, Exact Solutions, Neofitton, Fujifilm and many more. See the full list of exhibitors on the show’s website.
In 2017, Propak West Africa was hailed ‘a success by all measures’ after bringing together over 3,200 attendees from 30 different countries and 135 exhibiting companies over 1,491 SQM of show floor space. Senior packaging managers, consultants, suppliers and manufacturers enjoyed unique networking and learning opportunities over the three days with numerous product launches and live equipment. According to registration statistics, the combined budget of attendees amounted to over $3 billion, making the event an absolute must-attend for industry professionals across the region.
