Coatings for Africa is THE major showcase for the southern African coatings market, and with a rich history of success, through its 50 year association with the Oil and Colour Chemists’ Association (OCCA) and South African Paint Manufacturing Association (SAPMA), the event continues to provide an unrivalled opportunity for those looking to forge new friendships across the continent. With SAPMA members responsible for 90% of paints and coatings manufactured in South Africa alone, the two associations teamed up with DMG Events in 2018 to stage a truly international event which saw more than 1700 total attendance from 42 countries (12 from Africa). Six out of the world’s 10 fastest growing economies are in Africa and with rising prosperity and increased investment, both pan African and international, this is an unrivalled opportunity in a growing market for your business to share new ideas, be inspired, create cross-border business relationships and discover new revenue streams.
