WAITEX 2020 in Ghana postponed until 2021

Specialised Exhibitions and Afrocet, organisers of the West African Industrial Trade Exhibition (WAITEX) have announced that the show, due to take place in Accra in Ghana from 21-23 April 2020, has been postponed until 20-22 April 2021.

“In light of the rapid spread globally of the coronavirus pandemic and the announcement of a range of interventions by the South African presidency on Sunday 15 March, we have taken the decision to postpone Waitex 2020,” says Gary Corin, Managing Director of Specialised Exhibitions. “A large contingent of South African companies was booked to exhibit at the mining, automation, packaging and industrial trade show in Ghana alongside many local Ghanaian companies. In support of the extensive efforts by both countries’ Governments to contain the spread of the coronavirus, we are postponing the show until 20-22 April 2021.”

“We support the South African and Ghanaian Authorities’ decision to implement social distancing measures and temporarily prohibit large gatherings of people. We are committed to protecting all stakeholder health, both Ghanaian and South African,” says Corin.

“This is an unprecedented and fluid situation. Currently, all other exhibitions in our portfolio are scheduled to go ahead. We will keep all stakeholders informed of changes. Specialised Exhibitions and the Montgomery Group will respond to health and travel procedures in place locally and globally, as advised by governments and the World Health Organisation”, Corin concluded.
