Africa’s premier timber trade expo, WoodEX for Africa, will be held at Gallagher Convention Centre in Midrand, Johannesburg from 29 June 2021 to 01 July 2021. The new date was confirmed after the postponement of the event this year because of COVID-19.

Since its inception in 2012, WoodEX for Africa has established itself as the gateway to Africa’s timber trade. The event now offers even more as it will be held alongside the 2nd edition of the Deck & Flooring Expo and co-located with Africa’s biggest construction expo, African Construction Expo.

“The COVID-19 pandemic had a huge impact on business, but we are proud and very grateful to announce that our exhibitors who were confirmed to participate in this year’s event, have given us their support for next year’s event. With WoodEX now confirmed for 2021, our exhibitors and visitors have enough planning time to ultimately benefit from the platform created by WoodEX for Africa – to meet influential decision-makers, showcase products, position brands and grow businesses,” says Stephan Jooste, Director of WoodEX for Africa.
