About the event

Technology Showcases

The West Africa Building & Construction 2012 Exhibition showcases machinery, tools and techniques for the housing and infrastructure construction sector. Its companion event, the West Africa Building & Construction 2010 aims to help those providing civil engineering and housing projects in West Africa to see new materials and machinery for use in construction and talk to experts on how best to use them.


Water Africa 2012 offers an opportunity for companies to again put their products and services before purchasers from central and local government, industry, agriculture, NGOs and other key players from the entire West Africa region.

Seminar Programme:

Exhibitors at Water Africa 2012 andWest AfricaBuilding& Construction 2012 will be able to take part in the accompanying seminar programme, which will be run in co-ordination with the relevant government ministries. Places in the seminar programme will be limited and priority will be given to registered exhibitors. The programme will provide an ideal opportunity for exhibitors to get to know the problems and needs of the water and construction sectors in West Africa, and to provide information on their products and services.


A good number of the exhibitors at these exhibitions are often new to the West African market and will be looking for local partners to help them sell and distribute their products and services here. There is great potential for business to be done at both shows and exciting new products and services to be seen and discussed.

It is well supported by exhibitors from all over the world.  Products on show will include pipes, pumps, tanks, monitoring equipment, laboratory kits, well drilling and lining equipment, treatment plants and consulting services.
