Africa Automation Fair 2019 Preview News

It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to Africa Automation Fair 2019.

Africa’s premier and most effective networking platform to reach automation and smart control industry professionals. Africa Automation Fair has always worked closely with the IIG, SAIMC and Technews Publishing to plan and execute a focused networking platform for the automation and smart control industry. This year we have implemented a number of new value-added initiatives such as a live demonstration area, the African Hosted Buyer Program, Visitor VIP Hosted Program and visitor guided tours.

Owned by Reed Exhibitions, Africa’s top exhibition organiser with access to global trade and consumer event organising expertise serving 44 industry sectors active in 42 countries. Having established an excellent reputation over three decades we pride ourselves in delivering world-class events year on year. Customer value is our key focus which we continue to improve using data analytics thus gaining better insights into our exhibitors and visitors. This information ensures we deliver a greater return on investment for our exhibitors and a memorable experience for our visitors.

As organisers we continue to re-invent ourselves in this ever-changing market, staying relevant to specific markets, strengthening and building our exhibitions in terms of content, experiences and target audience. Reed Exhibitions is the pioneer in ensuring our events are trend setting, industry-leading and the ‘must attend’ event in our specific market sectors.

We urge participants and visitors to give us their feedback, which we will use to further grow and improve this important event. Best wishes for a successful show.
