WoodEX for Africa 2018

January 22, 2018

The fifth edition of WoodEX for Africa will take place at Gallagher Estate in Midrand from 11-13 July 2018.

Building on previous years, WoodEX for Africa 2018 will showcase innovative timber and woodworking products and services, such as woodworking machinery, fixtures and fittings, decking, flooring, structural timber, timber preservatives and treatment, sawmilling and logging, pulp and paper manufacturing, and wood material and veneer production.

“This makes WoodEX for Africa the ideal platform for those in the timber industry to connect with one another and other specialised dealers, stay in tune with the latest and greatest in the industry, to secure new business contacts and nurture existing ones, and to access special trade deals,” says Stephan Jooste, WoodEX for Africa Director.

The expo will include the Timber Talk programme, which comprises a number of short presentations by industry leaders and influencers. The sessions are free and no bookings are necessary.

With visitors hailing from as far afield as Angola, Botswana, Kenya, Malawi, Namibia, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe, WoodEX for Africa is considered South Africa’s gateway to the timber trade in Africa.

With the onset of what promises to be a cold winter, this photo provides a timely reminder of what happens to wattle trees when it snows. No! It’s not a good idea to plant wattle if snow is a possibility. The only thing you could use these broken trees for is firewood. The photo was taken near Weza a few years ago.
