WoodEX for Africa and the Deck and Flooring Expos will be held from 16 – 18 September 2020 at the TicketPro Dome in Johannesburg. The new date and venue have been announced after the expos were postponed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our thoughts are with everyone currently impacted by the COVID-19 virus. The safety and wellbeing of all our stakeholders is paramount and with this unprecedented situation unfolding, we have a responsibility to our exhibitors and our visitors to provide a safe place to interact and communicate face-to-face. We already had many exhibitors and visitors who committed to participate in the June event, and we now look forward to a successful and safe gathering in September at the TicketPro Dome.

The Ticketpro Dome is a Johannesburg landmark and is a highly sought-after and very versatile venue for special events and exhibitions. Co-located with the African Construction Expo, WoodEX for Africa and the Deck and Flooring Expo will now share the definitive dome shaped exhibition space to set the scene for three full days of exhibition and networking, free workshops and live demonstrations.

The event is an important gathering for the industry and a fantastic opportunity to network and reconnect after COVID-19.  We look forward to bringing together suppliers and buyers of equipment, tools, machinery, software and wood products in September at TicketPro Dome, to share innovative solutions.
