Organisers Specialised Exhibitions Montgomery and Afrocet Montgomery have announced the launch of Ghana’s premier mining, industrial, automation, packaging, and occupational health and safety trade expo, which will be taking place at the Dome, located at the Accra Trade Fair Grounds in Ghana, from 21-23 April 2020.
The new West African Industrial Trade Exhibition (WAITEX) skilfully harnesses the synergy and strengths of these interrelated industries and will showcase the latest products, technologies and services across these important sectors. The exhibition has been designed to support industry and business growth in Ghana by creating an environment where business partnerships can develop and trade exchanges can take place.
“We are excited about the launch of this new show in Ghana,” says Charlene Hefer, mining and industrial portfolio director at Specialised Exhibitions Montgomery. “As joint organisers with Afrocet Montgomery, who specialises in running high-end exhibitions and events in West Africa, we bring extensive experience in organising trade exhibitions across these industry sectors with a broad portfolio of shows in South Africa, Botswana and Zambia. We believe this partnership will be of benefit to all stakeholders involved.”
“The launch of this show will become a key driver in supporting the Governments “One district, one factory policy” says George Pearson, Regional Director at Afrocet Montgomery. “WAITEX is an ideal trade platform that will bring buyers and sellers together, both with the view of growing business and strategically supporting Ghana’s aspiration of developing factories and industries which will in turn move the country towards greater industrialization.”
“Exhibitors have the opportunity to expand their footprint in Africa, to source local distributors and new customers, and to build their brand awareness in Ghana,” added Pearson. “To see this amount of prospective customers individually, exhibitors would need to spend months in the area.”
A full programme of free-to-attend seminars presented by industry experts on a range of pertinent topics will also add significant value to the visitor experience. “WAITEX will provide a unique opportunity in the region for visitors to stay up to date with the latest industry trends and innovations,” concludes Hefer.
