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.

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.
