The West Africa Automotive Show (WAAS) third edition will take place at the Landmark Centre in Victoria Island, Lagos, from May 16 to 18, 2023.
More than 3,500 people are expected to attend the three-day exhibition at the largest auto parts trade show in the nation, which is expected to host more than 150 exhibitors from 40 different countries.
The show’s support for the automotive industry has been bolstered by the addition of the new WAAS conference, according to Managing Director of BtoB Events Jamie Hill, who is eager to welcome both new exhibitors and visitors as well as the many returning ones.
The WAAS exhibits a huge variety of goods, components, and services from hundreds of automotive brands around the world. The largest portfolio of trade shows on the African continent is organized by BtoB Events, which is also responsible for this event.
The West Africa Automotive Show has grown to be the biggest automotive aftermarket exhibition in West Africa thanks to its enormous popularity. The opportunity to be among the first to experience cutting-edge goods and technologies from around the globe on-site is valued by visitors.
“The WAAS Conference will enhance the experience by bringing together important business figures and public officials to talk about current issues and future directions. I’m thrilled that Luqman Mamudu, Director of Policy and Planning at the National Automotive Council, has been chosen to chair the conference,” he said.
He continued by saying that Mamudu, who is also the founder and chief executive officer of Transtech Industrial Consulting, wants the conference’s agenda to cover a variety of issues affecting the status of West Africa’s and Nigeria’s automotive sectors.
“I anticipate that both the WAAS show itself and the opening conference will increase demand for new parts in Nigeria. Above all, the conference recommendations will guide the new Nigerian government’s efforts to reorient the automotive industry”, He said.
