Evonik Acrylics Africa Participates at FESPA Africa 2018

For the seventh consecutive year, Evonik Acrylics Africa (EAA) participates in FESPA Africa 2018 hosted in Gallagher Convention Centre, Johannesburg between 12 and 14 September.

“With Africa being largely a developing market, our aim is to create a functional product showcase that EAA representatives could utilise as real-life applications examples whilst engaging with visitors during the show. We have been exhibiting at the show for many years because FESPA gives us the opportunity to engage with key customers in a relaxed environment in addition to providing us a valuable access to export clientele from across Africa” said Holger Morhart, General Manager of Evonik Acrylics Africa.

The event is the region’s largest, focused exhibition for the wide format digital printing, screen printing, garment decoration and textile printing. Furthermore, FESPA Africa takes place in conjunction with Sign Africa and Africa Print, the region’s leading events for the signage industry. Over 125 exhibitors showcased the latest developments in technology, solutions and consumables and the show attracted over 5500 visitors.
