West Africa Automotive Show
The definitive one stop show for all your automotive needs from maintenance and repair through to vehicle enhancement.
It has been 3 long years since the previous edition of the West Africa
Automotive Show and the return of WAAS did not disapoint, it was a
huge success, with 76 exhibitors and over 2,500 trade professionals in
WAAS hosted exhibitors from over 25 countries across the 3 days
showcasing the latest products and technologies that the global
automotive sector has to offer, from spare parts to lubricants, batteries
to accessories. The exhibition really did provide professionals from the
automotive industry with solutions to keep cars, trucks, motor bikes and
other vehicles on the roads of West Africa.
We are now fully focused on WAAS 2023. We are very excited to host
the next edition next year on May 16-18th 2023 again at the Landmark
Centre, Lagos, Nigeria. The exhibition will grow into a second hall for
the first time as we will continue to build on the momentum gained from
this years event which received a resounding level of positive feedback
and over 60% of space rebooked onsite for next year. We will be working
to double the number of exhibitors, welcome numerous new country
pavilions and, very importantly, launch the WAAS conference to run
alongside the exhibition. The WAAS conference will align itself with the
key issues and topics of the West African automotive sector and play a key
role in driving the industry forward as we all emerge out of the knock on
effects of the pandemic.
West Africa Automotive Show is organised by BtoB Events. Our team brings together the expertise behind the launches of the world’s largest specialist exhibitions, and has a wealth of experience of exhibiting in Nigeria and West Africa.
Across Nigeria, the spare parts market is seen as a vital business, with individual states supporting the development of specific sites for spare parts traders and automotive/motor mechanic businesses.
But the sector is also being boosted by new technology, creating a growing online marketplace.
With national policy encouraging greater car assembly within Nigeria, as well as increasing the tariffs on imports, all these factors demonstrate that the vehicle parts business in Nigeria is going to keep on growing.
