Propak West Africa set to be the biggest show to date

webuseonlyOrganisers of Propak ─ West Africa’s largest packaging, plastics, processing and printing exhibition ─ have confirmed stands for the upcoming event in September have nearly sold out

With the likes of Krones, Snetor Chimie, Piovan, Beaumont Aromatics and Pan-Asia Tech confirming their place at the Lagos event on 18-20 September, this is no surprise following the show's year-on-year growth. Since it started in 2014, the number of companies represented has increased by 68 per cent to 160. 

In a statement, 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 programme to ensure that September exceeds expectations for all in attendance.”

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 and in turn, has prompted more businesses to take part in the show.

 “Our show will look to promote innovative packaging solutions, discuss key issues around market trends and provide tactile advice for industry members,” Pearson added. 

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, the organisers, Afrocet Montgomery Exhibitions and Events, said 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. 

Stands are still available for the event taking place at the Landmark Centre in Lagos, Nigeria, and those looking to book should contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for more details and the show brochure.
