Propak launches into Ghana to support the industrial transformation and boost the local manufacturing industry

The organisers behind West Africa’s largest manufacturing event have announced the launch of the latest edition in their portfolio; Propak Ghana.

Propak Ghana will focus its attentions on the packaging, plastics, printing and processing sectors in Ghana and its neighbouring countries and act as a catalyst for business connections and growth. The exhibition will take place from the 6th – 8th June 2023 at the Grand Arena in the centre of Accra.

With a verified audience of 2,500 visitors descending on Accra to interact with 120+ brands on display it promises to be a melting pot of ideas, commerce and knowledge sharing, that will help support these key manufacturing sectors in the region and provide access for international brands looking to expand their footprint in the region.

Ghana’s population of 31 million, commands the second largest GDP in West Africa of $72.35bn, with the manufacturing sector making up 18.27% of this, demonstrating its importance to the economy. With Ghana’s Industrial Transformation Agenda that incentivises growth and investment in the manufacturing sector and the continued rise in its population and economic prowess, Accra is the obvious choice for Propak to locate its next event.

“We are hugely excited about this latest development, we’ve been running Propak West Africa in Nigeria for the last 10 years which has built up a reputation as the leading event for the sector in the region.” says George Pearson, Regional Director for Afrocet Montgomery who are organising the event. “We have always seen Ghana as the next opportunity to expand the reach of the portfolio due to its stability and prosperity. After in depth research and discussions with stakeholders we feel the time is now right to launch the exhibition to coincide with the growth in the sector and optimism in the manufacturing community following the pandemic.”

With a number of major local and international players, international pavilions and trade associations already signed up including, CCI France Ghana, Canada Ghana Chamber of Commerce, Ghana Nigeria Business Council, Food & Beverage Association of Ghana and the Ghana Printers & Paper Convertors Association to name a few, the exhibition is on sure footing to quickly become Ghana’s premier platform for the industries it serves.
