New dates for WoodEX for Africa

Important update: New dates for WoodEX for Africa

WoodEX for Africa scheduled from 16 – 18 September 2020, is officially postponed to 29 June – 1 July 2021 and will be held at Gallagher Convention Centre, Midrand.

The event is established, is the gateway to Africa’s timber trade and we are extremely proud of the WoodEX platform, therefore, the decision to postpone was not easy.

A successful trade event is crucial for your business and we understand the challenge of planning ahead in such uncertain times. WoodEX for Africa will remain co-located with the African Construction and Deck & Flooring Expo in 2021 and we are committed to hosting a robust and powerful showpiece.

The new date is a significant distance away from the current COVID-19 restrictions and will allow our exhibitors and visitors time to plan and ultimately benefit from opportunities to meet influential decision-makers, showcase products, position brands and grow business.

Virtual Expo

We are excited to announce the WoodEX for Africa Virtual Expo and Webinar planned for October 2020. This platform will provide a fantastic opportunity to connect and generate business without the need to travel or associated costs with a physical event.

Some of the benefits of a virtual expo:

  • LOW exhibitor costs compared to physical event (Zero stand setup, construction costs)
  • Exhibiting at an international event without the need to travel
  • ACCESS to international clientele
  • LAUNCH new products/specials
  • LIVE video demonstrations
  • Exposure to NEW distributors
  • Unlimited exposure (no restrictions for attendees)



Thank you for your understanding and continued support!
