WoodEX 2018 - Timber Trade Expo

The largest timber trade exhibition on the continent, WoodEX for Africa plays host to the most specialised, yet comprehensive range of equipment, tools, machinery and wood products available on the market.


As the gateway to Africa's timber and trade - all under one roof - WoodEX for Africa’s exhibition is a focused event and its showing has been carefully cultivated over the years to include a wide-ranging representation of products and services.

Hosted indoors at Gallagher Estate in Midrand, WoodEX for Africa showcases large CNC machines, woodworking machinery and equipment, veneering equipment, ply woods, tooling, fixtures and fittings as well as paints and coatings, and industry associations, making the show the most inclusive showcase of timber and related products and services on the continent. According to WoodEX for Africa Organiser, Stephan Jooste, "From the start of WoodEX in 2012, the show carried both indoor and outdoor exhibition areas to showcase products optimally, with big names like Wood-Mizer, CMC Woodworking Machinery, WoodTech, Geerlings, Bosch, De Walt and Vermont Sales, among others, proudly taking space at the show."





Heavy forestry and wood-processing equipment and machinery are best positioned outdoors, not just for practical reasons, but for exhibitors to demonstrate their equipment and machinery put to the test in its natural environment. The outdoor exhibit has always had a special vibrancy of its own with highlights over the years including exciting portable sawmill demonstrations, three-wheeler testing as well as a chainsaw wood carving competition.

WoodEX for Africa will be taking place from 11-13 July 2018 at Gallagher Estate in Midrand. Early Bird bookings for the event are now open. Exhibitors are encouraged to secure their space early to unlock maximum exposure leading up to the event.
