West Africa Automotive Show.
The West Africa Automotive Show is your only opportunity to meet with hundreds of international automotive suppliers, who are looking for business partners across West Africa.
West Africa Automotive Show is organized by BtoB Events. Our team brings together the expertise behind the launches of the world’s largest specialist exhibitions and has a wealth of experience exhibiting in Nigeria and West Africa.
Across Nigeria, the spare parts market is seen as a vital business, with individual states supporting the development of specific sites for spare parts traders and automotive/motor mechanic businesses.
But the sector is also being boosted by new technology, creating a growing online marketplace.
With national policy encouraging greater car assembly within Nigeria, as well as increasing the tariffs on imports, all these factors demonstrate that the vehicle parts business in Nigeria is going to keep on growing.
It has been 3 long years since the previous edition of the West Africa Automotive Show and the return of WAAS did not disappoint, it was a huge success, with 76 exhibitors and over 2,500 trade professionals in attendance.
WAAS hosted exhibitors from over 25 countries across the 3 days
showcasing the latest products and technologies that the global
automotive sector has to offer, from spare parts to lubricants, batteries to accessories. The exhibition really did provide professionals from the automotive industry with solutions to keep cars, trucks, motorbikes, and other vehicles on the roads of West Africa.
We are now fully focused on WAAS 2023. We are very excited to host
the next edition next year on May 16-18th 2023 again at the Landmark
Centre, Lagos, Nigeria. The exhibition will grow into a second hall for the first time as we will continue to build on the momentum gained from this year’s event which received a resounding level of positive feedback and over 60% of space rebooked onsite for next year. We will be working to double the number of exhibitors, welcome numerous new country pavilions, and, very importantly, launch the WAAS conference to run alongside the exhibition. The WAAS conference will align itself with the key issues and topics of the West African automotive sector and play a key role in driving the industry forward as we all emerge out of the knock-on effects of the pandemic.
