After a successful hosting of five exhibitions in 2016, Africa Print expo organisers Practical Publishing are planning an exciting 2017 calendar with two new locations. The three major events will be hosted in Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg with the two locations being added in East London and Zambia.
The Zambia Expo will be hosted in Lusaka at the Convention Centre. This is exciting new territory for those exhibitors that would like to expand their reach into Africa and meet potential clients face to face.
The East London expo will be hosted at the newly built International Convention Centre with promotion throughout the Eastern Cape, Transkei and Lesotho. This venue has hosted large expos with good visitor attendance, so it is a well known location and is expected to attract new visitors from the region.
In addition to the regional expo's, the flagship Africa Print expo, co-located with FESPA Africa and Sign Africa, will be held in Johannesburg at Gallagher Convention Centre from 13-15 September 2017.
The confirmed dates for the 2017 expo's are:
- East London: 15 February, East London International Convention Centre.
- Cape Town: 15-16 March, Cape Town International Convention Centre.
- Durban: 19-20 April, Durban ICC.
- Zambia: 8-9 June, Mulungushi International Conference Centre.
- Johannesburg: 13-15 September, Gallagher Convention Centre.
