With just over a month to go before WoodEX for Africa 2018 opens its doors from 11 to 13 July 2018 at Gallagher Convention Centre in Midrand, everyone who is anyone in the woodworking machinery, tooling, and products sector has secured their space at the fifth edition of this much-anticipated biennial trade show.

"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.

"We 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 day

"By 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

"With 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," Jooste comments.

"Having 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 concludes.
