WoodEX for Africa, Africa’s premier timber trade expo, will be back physically from 07 – 09 June 2022 at Gallagher Convention Centre in Midrand, South Africa.

WoodEX for Africa is an important event for the industry and a fantastic opportunity to network and reconnect after the Covid-19 pandemic. The event provides the ideal platform to explore growth opportunities in Africa.

Long established as the gateway to Africa’s timber trade, WoodEX for Africa is being hosted alongside the 2nd edition of the Deck & Flooring Expo and will, for the first time, be co-located with Africa’s must-attend construction expo, the African Construction Expo. These events will bring together suppliers and buyers of equipment, tools, machinery, software and wood products to do business and share innovative solutions.

A dynamic and lucrative platform in Africa for trade and industry to connect with specialised dealers, stay abreast of the latest industry trends and innovations, secure new business contacts and compare the best deals in the timber trade, WoodEX for Africa has grown robustly year on year since the inaugural event held in 2012. The event has increasingly enjoyed a strong African visitor profile, making up a substantial percentage of international trade visitors to the expo.

WoodEX for Africa 2018 was the biggest event to-date, with almost double the number of brands and exhibitors on show compared to previous years. The event also showcased a notably more diverse offering and enjoyed unprecedented exposure to both visitors and exhibitors from close to 30 different countries. This was in part due to the inclusion of the inaugural edition of the Deck & Flooring Expo, which added significant value for exhibitors and visitors.

Better together

WoodEX for Africa and the Deck & Flooring Expo are joining forces with Africa’s biggest construction expo, the African Construction Expo, to present the ultimate industry focused trade expo in Africa in 2022.

Held for the past seven years, the African Construction Expo provides a unique platform to engage with key industry stakeholders and to conduct valuable business.

Together the expos offer added exposure for exhibitors and visitors in the various industries – from machinery, tools and equipment, fits and finishes, components, new technology and materials to concrete and cement, surfaces and finishes, digital construction and construction.
