Propak West Africa is widely known in the region as the leading exhibition for the packaging, plastics, printing and processing industry. This reputation has been built up over years through dedication to the market and integrating with the key stakeholders in West Africa.

Over the nine years that Propak West Africa has taken place it has grown and expanded its reach across West Africa. This has provided the organisers behind it, Afrocet Montgomery, insight into new expansion opportunities in the region which has led to their announcements of plans to organise their first major B2B trade exhibition and conference in Accra from 6 – 8 June 2023 under the brand name “Propak Ghana”. The exhibition will take place at the Grand Arena, Accra International Conference Centre and will focus on the following key industries: packaging, plastics, printing & processing. The event has been launched to provide access to businesses that are looking to build their footprint in Ghana and the West African region. With over 2500 visitors and 120 exhibitor brands, it promises to bring together key buyers, business owners and factory managers all under one roof for a very busy three days.
The two events will strengthen Afrocet Montgomery’s aim to provide the industries it serves with a platform to access and build their footprints in the West African markets.
