Taking place from 18–20 September at the Landmark Centre on Victoria Island in Lagos, Nigeria, the trade fair is set to be the biggest edition to date. 

More than 4,000 professionals are expected to come together to see the latest equipment and technology from local and international print and packaging brands.

Organisers, Afrocet Montgomery, say they are confident that this year’s edition will surpass all expectations and continue to help drive the industries' expansion. 

Among the companies confirmed to be at this year’s exhibition are Windmoller & Hoelscher, BOBST, Kodak, Krones, Heidelberg, KBA, Piovan, Exact Solutions, Neofitton and Fujifilm.

George Pearson, regional director, said, “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.” 

There will also be a free conference which will take place alongside the event, featuring keynote addresses from senior industry stakeholders and government representatives who will speak on issues such as waste management, packaging sustainability and business strategies. Registrations are available online.

In 2017, Propak West Africa was hailed ‘a success by all measures’ after bringing together more than 3,200 attendees from 30 different countries and 135 exhibiting companies. Senior packaging managers, suppliers and manufacturers enjoyed networking and learning opportunities through the numerous product launches and live equipment displays over the course of three days.
