Nigeria’s largest automotive parts exhibition, the West Africa Automotive Show (WAAS) has begun in Lagos.
Holding from Tuesday 17th May to Thursday, 19th May, 2022 at the Landmark Centre on Victoria Island, Lagos, WAAS is featuring automotive parts as well as up-to-date developments in the auto parts and services sector, courtesy of over 100 exhibitors from Nigeria and other parts of the world.
A significantly highlight of the event is the presence of Nigerian businesses representing more than 20 countries, including India, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Thailand, Indonesia, Nigeria, Pakistan, the UAE, Poland, the United State of America, and Turkey.
Endorsed by the National Automotive Design and Development Council (NADDC), and its founding partner, Auto Spare Parts and Machinery Dealers Association (ASPMDA), WAAS is organized by BtoB Events.
In a pre-event statement, Jamie Hill, Managing Director of BtoB Events, organizers of WAAS, expressed gladness over the return of the Show, which was suspended as a result of the COVID-19.
According to him, following the announcement of a date for the post-pandemic event, demand for exhibition space soared, a development he described as a reflection of the strong desire from the market to get back to business and make up for a lost time.
He said: “The impact of the pandemic on international trade was huge, so the exhibition will act as a perfect platform for businesses to find new suppliers from around the world and suppliers to find new customers across the region.”
Partnering with the West Africa Automotive Show 2022 is Motoring World International, Nigeria’s premier publication for the automotive and allied industry.
Other partners include: Investment and Export Development Agency); National Automotive Design and Development Council; Residents Automotive Components Dealers Association of Nigeria (RACDAN); National Association of Nigerian Traders (NANTS); New Motor Spare Parts Dealers Association, Yangobra, Kano; New Auto Spare Parts Dealers Association, Nkpor, and Abuja Motor Spare Parts Dealers Association (AMSPDA).
Second day of the event, Wednesday 18th May and Thursday 19th May 2022 will feature a special Seminar, focusing on ‘Trade Opportunities in the Automotive Industry.”
