George Pearson speaks about this year’s special edition: “As organisers we are thrilled Propak West Africa has reached the 10-year milestone. Since its launch, Propak West Africa has firmly established its status as the leading platform for local and international suppliers to meet, network, and do business with the biggest names in manufacturing in the West African region. From its humble beginnings back in 2012, the exhibition has seen the overall size increase by over 300%, a testament to how Propak West Africa continues to be an influential and effective platform for both companies looking to establish and develop their footprints in the region.”

Once again, the high-level conference programme returned to Propak this year with the organisers thrilled to have partnered with KPMG Nigeria as well as Institute of Packaging Nigeria in assembling a two-day conference agenda which saw a line-up of esteemed speakers take the stage to share their expert knowledge and insight on the future of packaging and key market trends to watch out for in a series of presentations and panel discussions.

Propak West Africa 2023 proved to be a grand success with greater participation from regional and global players from the packaging industry. The positive reception from regional exhibitors at Propak West Africa 2023 also retained the platform’s significance for the manufacturing sector in West Africa. High expectations for the coming year saw 65% of the floorspace already sold out for Propak West Africa 2024, which will be held from 10-12 September, 2024.
