The 9th edition of plastprintpack Nigeria is all about big ambitions. Expect a confluence of innovation, knowledge and opportunity that surpasses all previous efforts.

Following the remarkable success of the 8th edition of plastprintpack Nigeria in March 2023 (Post show report), the organisers are committed to raising the standards even further.

The event, organised by German trade fair specialists fairtrade, will again be held in conjunction with agrofood Nigeria from 26 to 28 March 2024 at the Landmark Centre in Lagos, Victoria Island.

And here is what exhibitors may expect.

  • An incredible sustained interest in the exhibitors’ products & solutions on the part of decision-makers from business and politics
  • A very large number of targeted business meetings - these resulted in an 89% exhibitor satisfaction rating in 2023
  • Active participation of key ministers from the new government, both at the Federal and Lagos State levels

Italian Pavilion

The Italian Trade Agency ITA in cooperation with AMAPLAST, UCIMA, and ACIMGA organises the first Collective Participation of Italian companies at plastprintpack & agrofood Nigeria in 2024.

Why participate?

Nigeria, with $477bn GDP in 2022, is the largest economy and the most populous country on the African continent, with more than 200 million people, which is expected to double by 2050.

The country is the second largest importer in Africa of plastics processing technology (€143m in 2022); the largest importer of packaging technology (€183m in 2022); and the second largest importer of printing and converting machinery in sub-Saharan Africa. It is therefore a very promising market, both in terms of its current size and its future development.

plastprintpack & agrofood Nigeria bring together, in a single event, the agricultural mechanization, food processing, plastics and paper processing (for packaging and non-packaging), packaging and bottling sectors, and is the most important local exhibition for the above sectors.

The objective of participating in this event is to increase the export opportunities of Italian companies, in an area with strong market potential, but where the assistance of institutions is still essential to approach local operators in the most effective way.

The Netherlands Pavilion

The Netherlands Pavilion is supported by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.

South Africa Pavilion

South Africa joins in for the 2024 event with a Department of Agri Western Cape Pavilion featuring more than ten exhibitors.

The Western Cape Department of Agriculture provides a wide range of development, research and support services to the agricultural community in the Western Cape. The agricultural sector stimulates economic growth in the province and plays a major role in creating sustainable job opportunities.

Top level 3-day conference

A top level 3-day conference featuring 19 sessions and 74 top-class speakers ran alongside the exhibition.

Due to high demand, the conference room had been enlarged to 180 seats and equipped with an 11m wide backdrop, including 7m of LED for the best possible presentation quality.

C-level speakers representing market-leading companies and institutions delivered educational and entertaining sessions of the highest quality, promising immediate benefits for the audience in their day-to-day business.
