All set for WoodEX for Africa Exhibition and Conference

The exhibition´s visitor promotional campaign is rolling out with advertisements and articles in a variety of industry publications,  soon to be followed by a radio campaign, street posters and newspaper advertisements. The WoodEX team is also very excited and proud of the 20 x 5m WoodEX billboard on the N1 next to Vodaworld in Midrand which was erected recently. This billboard is very visible, and with more than 175 000 motor vehicles passing the billboard daily, WoodEX is getting excellent exposure!

One of the highlights in the WoodEX exhibition programme this year will be the demonstrations by celebrated DIY guru and television personality Riaan Garforth-Venter, better known as "Die Nutsman" on 23 and 24 March. Riaan, who is synonymous with creative ideas, DIY, eco-tips, conservation and beautiful homes, will share his passion for wood by building a deck, a work bench and a picnic table. Riaan´s easy tips and unbelievable knowledge of products and how to use them effectively is an absolute winner!

With WoodEX fast approaching, a high percentage of the exhibition space has already been booked and exhibitors interested in still securing a stand should book urgently. WoodEX is a great marketing opportunity, offering exhibitors a platform to meet their clients face-to-face, to promote their brand and to grow their sales. WoodEX´s partnership with the European Federation of Woodworking Manufacturers (Eumabois) has also resulted in a number of international companies recognising this great marketing platform and confirming their participation in this year´s exhibition, and we look forward to welcoming, amongst others, Mebor from Slovenia, Dieffenbacher from Germany, Haglof from Sweden, and IWTMoldrup and Protecta Woodtech from Denmark.

The WoodEX for Africa Conference will also have an international flair, with a number of international speakers sharing their knowledge. A presentation not to be missed is that of Mr Franz-Josef Bütfering, President of Eumabois, who will speak about the Woodworking Machinery Industry - Enabler of a Better Future. Eumabois represents 800 woodworking manufacturers from 14 European countries, covering 60 percent of the worldwide production of woodworking machinery. 

Riaan Garforth-Venter, better known as "Die Nutsman", will share his passion for wood
by building a deck, a work bench and a picnic table at WoodEX this year.
