West Africa Automotive Show 2022 praised by exhibitors

Exhibitors from this years West Africa Automotive Show (WAAS) in Lagos, Nigeria, have described the Nigerian market as a very huge one for their business to thrive.

Exhibitors hailing from Africa, Asia, the US and Europe, all came into this year’s exhibition with the latest technologies in vehicle spare parts including batteries and lubricants, attracting vehicle owners and engineers alike to the show.

Sanjeev Arvind Khapre, Chief Operating Officer for Reem Batteries and Power Appliances Company, exhibited, who was the head of the defunct West Africa Batteries Limited in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital for ten years said that: ”Africa is a very big market so also Nigeria is a big market for automobile parts. There is no manufacturer of battery now in Nigeria after West Africa Batteries was closed down, so we want to market our products here and maybe later on we can have a manufacturing base here.”

Business Development Manager Ben Dadswell from BtoB Events Limited, the organisers of the event, said that The West Africa Automotive Show is an opportunity held annually for the automotive sector of West Africa to come together, network, forge new partnerships, discuss best practice and of course, do business.

He stated further: “I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank all our sponsors, exhibitors and show partners for their support since the launch of WAAS. We hope that you enjoy your time at the exhibition and manage to take away many new insights to generate future success for your business.”
