2019 saw Propak West Africa in its most successful edition to date. An impressive 89% of exhibitors said they achieved their goals at the exhibition, and as a result 82% of them re-booked onsite!
For the new decade, the organisers, Afrocet Montgomery, are guaranteeing even more for the exhibition. September 2020 will mark the show’s 8th edition and is expected to welcome more than 5,000 key industry stakeholders and more than 200 leading industry brands as they showcase their products and services. Propak West Africa is set to grow 31% in net space making the floorplan a remarkable 2,900sqm in comparison to 2,208sqm the year before.
But that’s not all that’s new this year. Propak West Africa has had a little makeover reflecting the growth and development of the largest packaging, plastics, food processing, labelling and print exhibition in the West African Region. Later in the year, a brand-new website will be rolled out and organisers will introduce the brand new Propak West Africa Connect App. The new app will effectively serve as a matchmaking tool for all exhibitors and visitors. All registered users will be able to pre-organise meetings with every exhibitor, visitor and speaker, as well as earmark conferences they’d like to attend and create a personal schedule to maximise their time at the event.
This year’s line-up of exhibiting brands will include Sasol as platinum sponsors for the event in addition to Atlas Copco, Beaumont Aromatic and SkySat Technologies.
Corporate Sales Manager, Vikash Dadhich, from SkySat Technologies when asked about Propak West Africa in 2019 said: “We are proud to be part of an event which is organized very well. We will be part of it always. It’s a great opportunity to showcase our products and services and meet new and existing customers.”
On the incredible development of Propak West Africa the last few years, Regional Director George Pearson said: “Every year Propak West Africa goes from strength to strength which we feel is indicative of the incredible growth opportunities we’re seeing in the market at present. Our successful re-book rate of 82% in 2019 demonstrates our commitment to ensuring we deliver a valuable expo for every single one of our participants.”, and when asked what exhibitors and visitors can expect for the 2020 edition he said: “With the new decade now here, we’re heavily investing in growing the success of the show even more with tools like our new Website and Event App which will make navigating the expo and establishing key connections among attendees that much easier. It’s going to be an exciting year for us, so stay tuned for more updates!”.
