Taking place between the 22nd and 24th of November 2022 at the Landmark Centre, in Lagos, Nigeria, according to organisers, Afrocet Montgomery, attendees of Propak West Africa can expect to discover brand new technology, learn about exciting growth opportunities and benchmark themselves in the market.  

Each session in the programme will give attendees critical insight and provide an opportunity to gain knowledge on evolving consumer behaviour, market trends and take part in important discussions on subject matters affecting the manufacturing industry.

Distinguished panels of speakers are set to deliver insightful talks this year including Dr Jean Marc Ricca, Managing Director Nigeria of BASF West Africa, Prof Pierre Pienaar, President of World Packaging Organisation and Ernest Ighrawve, Technical Project Manager of Doehler.

Panel discussions addressing pertinent matters such as ‘The challenges of recycling food-grade polymer. Can they meet food and beverage industry sustainability targets?’ are also set to take place across the three days.
