Leading players from all across the printing, packaging, plastics and processing industries took part at the recent Propak West Africa event, held in Lagos

More than 200 brands showcased the latest products and equipment available for the supply and manufacturing chain, with live machine demos taking place on the exhibition floor.

The showcase event, held at Nigeria’s Landmark Centre between 22-24 November 2022, marked a welcome return after the past few years, said George Pearson, regional director for organisers, Afrocet Montgomery. “After the last few years of disruption, to be back with a sell-out event and to have such high numbers of visitors through the doors, it’s a great achievement,” he commented. 

Some 4,238 industry stakeholders attended the exhibition to visit 143 exhibitor stands, with participants attending from across the globe.  

With the exhibition occupying three purpose-built halls for the first time, exhibitors from the local market included AFRA Technical Concept, Ayush International, BOBST West Africa, CIS Buro, Percoso Nigeria, Tetra Pak West Africa Ltd and Zutrad Ventures to name just a few. 

Some of the international names travelling to Lagos to take part included Enercon Asia Pacific Systems Pvt. Ltd, HTG Industry SA France, IPCO Sweden AB, Kombi Makina ve Sanayi Tic. Ltd. Sti, Neofyton and Welbound Worldwide.

The event also had three dedicated country pavilions from Austria, Egypt and Italy, reflecting its global reach.

Running alongside the exhibition was a conference programme exploring new market trends, technologies and opportunities. 

It included a Sustainability Focus day, held alongside KMPG Nigeria’s ESG Services team, which brought thought leaders and experts together to discuss the role of plastics industries in sustainability and learn about new technological innovations in plastics waste processing.

According to Pearson, next year’s event is shaping up well after this year’s exhibition saw an impressive on-site rebooking rate of 65%.

“With halls one and two almost full already for 2023, we can’t wait to bring Propak West Africa back next year to its normal dateline in September – whilst also hosting many of our exhibitors in the new launch of Propak Ghana in June,” he said. “2023 is shaping up to be a big year.” 

Propak West Africa returns on 12-14 September, 2023.
