Exhibitor participation is already exceeding 2015 numbers for the Africa Print Expo, and organisers are expecting to have sold-out halls over the next few weeks. The largest commercial and digital printing event in Africa will take place from 7-9 September at Gallagher Convention Centre.
The event will feature exhibitor representation from South Africa, UK, Germany, USA, China, Lebanon, Italy and India.
According to the PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (PwC) Africa's 'Africa Business Agenda survey', Africa remains one of the preferred frontiers for investment opportunities and doing business and growth and foreign direct investment has continued in Africa amid the recent global economic uncertainty. Hein Boegman, CEO for PwC Africa, said, 'CEOs in Africa are ramping up their efforts to innovate and find new ways to do business on the continent in a move to stimulate growth in a challenging and uncertain global business environment.
'Notwithstanding a multitude of challenges, many of which are cyclical, we remain confident that Africa’s prospects remain positive. Africa’s business leaders have the opportunity to pursue new business opportunities on the continent, more particularly in the light of rapid innovative and technological advances that have the potential to transform and shape industries.'
With the need to innovate and pursue new business opportunities in challenging times in mind, the Africa Print event, co-located with FESPA Africa, Sign Africa and Africa LED, is an ideal platform for business owners to explore new revenue streams and profitable add-ons. In line with the theme of the event: 'Connect, Diversify, Grow', the expo will feature free educational content and networking opportunities, as well as being a showcase for the latest innovations in
digital printing, sheetfed A3 machines up to wide format digital equipment, commercial printing, finishing equipment, software, media and consumables and digital packaging.
