As technological inventions continue to disrupt industries globally, leading to revenue generation for businesses, Zenith Exhibitions is poised to hold the Equipment and Manufacturing West Africa (EMWA) Exhibition and Conference from the 28th of April to the 30th of April, 2020.

Slated to hold at the Landmark Centre, Lagos, Nigeria, the 3-day event seeks to unite the markets across West Africa and connect them through face-to-face meetings designed to accommodate their ever-changing market challenges and needs.

Latest technology, equipment and materials in the manufacturing and industrial sectors will be showcased, amid discussions on best practices and global standards in the sector corridors. The event will welcome over 2,500 visiting professionals and feature over 85 companies and brands and 4 Country Pavilions across 3,500m2.
BusinessDay further learnt that besides product exhibitions, there will also be lectures to discuss significant trends and issues in the industry.

Topics like the impact of financial investment on manufacturing; the future of trade – a perspective on the new decade and the growing marketplace; industrialization: an urgent necessity will be addressed under the theme: Industrialization and Innovation: Growth and Development of the Industrial Sector to Unlock Nigeria’s Potential “To prepare for the future of our industrial sector, companies need to focus on building operational excellence by investing in technology and innovation, and taking on new practices,” said Joseph Oru, project director.

He explained that the event will showcase the industry’s best ideas, innovations, technologies and cost-effective solutions to raise productivity within the manufacturing and industrial machinery environment. Therefore, the event is positioned as a significant platform for the exchange of ideas and innovative thinking, joint development of concrete solutions, valuable partnerships and new business deals, Oru adds.

According to the organisers, EMWA is exclusively dedicated to the entire manufacturing equipment sector, offering specialists, traders and buyers with an all-inclusive category of products and services, but Nigeria will play host to the conference. “With Nigeria’s demographic advantages and expanding market opportunities, the event is an attractive business hub for industrialists and investors to capitalize on its growth,” the project director said.

The Equipment and Manufacturing West Africa was said to be born from the audacious idea that something phenomenal can come out of West Africa with Nigeria as the trigger, the organisers said. “This is coupled the overwhelming need for a meeting point for captains of industries, professionals and enthusiasts to converge and touch on industry trends, share knowledge, experience, and discuss happenings within their different spheres of operation.

“It provides an opportunity for participants to pool ideas, collaborate in order to help one another in an effort to take advantage of prevailing technology to offer better products and excellent support and other allied services,” Oru further elucidates. As of 2018, Nigeria maintained her position as the third largest growing economy in Africa, according to available records and this speaks of great prospects in sector.
