Still time to make the cut for top timber trade show

WITH less than a month to go before WoodEX for Africa 2018 opens its doors from 11 to 13 July 2018 at Gallagher Convention Centre in Midrand, time is running out for anyone in the woodworking machinery, tooling, and products sector who hasn’t done so yet to secure their space at the biennial trade show.

“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,” said 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 said.

“By virtue of its status as a biennial event, the ‘shelf-life’ of the show extends long beyond its three show days,” Jooste said, 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.”

He said there was still “very limited” space left at the show and encouraged any 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”.

“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.”
