"With the final days of show preparation upon us, we are
proud to have secured unrivalled commitment from the industry at large for the
biggest trade expo in Africa dedicated exclusively to the wood industry. The
fifth edition of WoodEX for Africa will house all the industry leaders in the
trade and exhibitors from across the world, from newcomers to the industry,
market staples, technological innovations and the biggest local and
international players in the woodworking sector," says Stephan Jooste, WoodEX
for Africa Organiser.
are pleased to welcome yet more new exhibitors to our show, among whom are the
likes of AluSmart Machinery, CMC Woodworking Machinery, Dieffenbacher,
Geerlings, Harris Sawing Equipment, Hintech Manufacturing, Holtec, Lunawood,
Pearlman Veneers, Promob, REM, Roos Woodworking Machinery, Rubio Monocoat, SJM
Distributors, Upper Edge Products, Vantec and WoodTech Mechatronics," he says.
Above & beyond show
virtue of its status as a biennial event, the ‘shelf-life' of the show extends
long beyond its three show days," Jooste remarks, adding, "The networking at
the show, industry and media partnerships as well as marketing and advertising
avenues secured by the organisers during the run up to the event strategically
combine to boost the show's manifold benefits well into the future for both
visitors and especially exhibitors."
Final call to action
just a few weeks left before we open our doors for the fifth time, we have very
limited space left at the show, and encourage all would-be exhibitors not to
miss out on an opportunity to reach a highly concentrated market, not only for
sales, but for building invaluable networks in the field, with the added facet
of the launch edition of the Deck & Flooring Expo. WoodEX for Africa's next
instalment after this edition will only be taking place again in 2020. This
frequency enhances the value of each show for our exhibitors and intensifies
the incentive for participation, which is why we wish to take this opportunity
to make our last call for exhibitors before our bookings are at full capacity,"
proven over the years that we bring the right type of visitors to the show,
such as decision-makers and individuals with buying power looking for the right
business opportunities, new products, materials and machinery to boost their
profits, we look forward to hosting another memorable WoodEX for Africa this
year and to offering visitors and exhibitors alike the opportunity to gather
insights, do business, build networks and delight in a smorgasbord of
woodworking and related equipment, machinery, tooling and services on show," he
