Propak West Africa set to sell out
Propak West Africa set to sell out completely ahead of its 2018 edition in September.
This morning organisers of West Africa’s largest packaging, plastics, processing and printing exhibition have confirmed stands for the upcoming event have all but sold out. With 89% of the floor already allocated to various industry brands, all eyes are on the show to deliver what will be the biggest edition to date.
With the likes of Krones, Snetor Chimie, Piovan, Beaumont Aromatics and Pan-Asia Tech confirmed the news is of no surprise to organisers following the year on year growth trends the show has experienced. Since the inaugural show in 2014, the number of companies represented has grown by 68% to 160.
In a statement to press, George Pearson, Regional Director for Afrocet Montgomery said, “We are extremely happy with the show’s progress so far, with four months to go we are confident the exhibition will completely sell out. We are working hard to bring to life new features and a world class conference program to ensure that September exceeds expectations for all in attendance.”
When asked if there is a reason behind this success, Mr Pearson answered “New consumer trends and the continued growth in the manufacturing sector in Nigeria and across West Africa have had a significant impact on the printing and packaging industry as a whole, which I think is reflective of why so many businesses are keen to participate. Our show will look to promote innovative packaging solutions, discuss key issues around market trends and provide tactile advice for industry members.”
The show is expected to draw 4,000 visitors over the three days from more than 30 countries worldwide. With onsite networking events and the conference bolstering the added value of Propak West Africa, this year’s show will offer unparalleled trade opportunities for all attendees.
One of the prominent draws will be the conference, hosting daily free-to-attend sessions with leading experts discussing the latest issues affecting the market and providing exclusive insights. The schedule for this conference is expected to be announced in the coming months.
Taking place from 18 – 20 September 2018 at the Landmark Centre in Lagos, Nigeria, Propak West Africa will bring together senior packaging and print professionals from across the region. Stands are still available and those looking to book should contact Othello.Rolet@montex.co.uk for more details and the show brochure.
