    Coatings for Africa – where innovation meets business

    Coatings for Africa sets out to drive innovation and education in line with the changing face of Africa’s growing paint and coatings industries.

    The African coatings industry remains key to supporting the continent’s ever-growing development requirements. The future for the paint and coatings sector looks particularly promising, given the strong economic outlook, long-term demographic growth and rising urbanisation across Sub-Saharan Africa. Join us in 2017 so you do not miss out on the opportunity to hear from Africa’s most authoritative figures!

    Recognising opportunities in South Africa and beyond, Coatings for Africa is creating a completely new experience. With a distinctly pan-African focus and a minimum of ten African countries represented, the event connects buyers and sellers from across Sub-Saharan Africa as well as globally. To generate additional synergies, Coatings for Africa is hosted alongside African Construction and Totally Concrete Expos, Africa’s biggest gathering of the concrete and construction industry.
