The West Africa Automotive Show (WAAS) will make its post-pandemic return to Lagos from Tuesday 17th May to Thursday 19th May. WAAS is Nigeria’s largest automotive parts and services trade event and is expecting more than 3,000 visitors at the Landmark Centre, Victoria Island.
This 2nd edition of WAAS will be the biggest to date with over 100 exhibitors from Nigeria and around the world showcasing the latest spare parts, batteries, oils and lubricants, and more to the West African market.
As well as promoting the Nigerian and regional automotive trade, international representation comes from more than 20 countries including India, UK, Ireland, Thailand, Indonesia, Nigeria, Pakistan, UAE, Poland, USA, Turkey, and Egypt.
The target audience for WAAS comprises the assemblers, commercial garages, retailers, mechanics, engineers, fleet operators, and logistics companies of Nigeria and the West Africa Region.
The show will also be of interest to enthusiasts for custom-car building, auto stylists, and those looking to see what the latest is in body kits.
The organisers, BtoB Events, are delighted to be able to stage WAAS as the automotive industry has been keen to see a return to being able to meet customers and check out the latest products in person.
Managing Director Jamie Hill says:
“Demand for exhibition space has been very high, which reflects the strong desire from the market to get back to business and make us for lost time. 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.”
One consequence of this level of interest is that there is now only very limited stand availability remaining. Any business wanting to participate as an exhibitor or sponsor is encouraged to contact the organisers urgently at [email protected] or by phone on +44 (0) 2476 158100.
WAAS has the backing of the largest spare part trade association in Africa, the Auto Spare Part and Machinery Distributors Association (ASPMDA), which is a founding partner for the show.
WAAS is also endorsed by the National Automotive Design and Development Council (NADDC).
