About 230 companies are confirmed for the direct and indirect exhibition of the 5th edition of Expo-indústria/2023, to be held from March 29 to April 1, in the Special Economic Zone (ZEE) Luanda-Bengo, said, the Chairman of the Board of Directors of Eventos Arena, Bruno Albernaz.
Speaking to ANGOP, about the preparations for the event, he underlined that the 230 confirmed participations exceed the approximately 200 of 2019, when the Expo-indústria (Expo Industry) had a three-year pause, due to Covid-19 pandemic.
According to the businessman, despite the registration process being finalised, the confirmed participations represent an extremely positive number for a sectoral fair linked to the industry.
He made it known that in terms of participation there are about eight provinces, including Benguela, Huíla, Namibe, Malanje, Cabinda and Cuanza Norte.
He added that the exhibiting companies are all national, “that operate in our market, carrying out their activity in the country, because it is an expo focused on national industry. The international participation is of agents representing machines and equipment that they make available to these industries to keep up with their business”.
“There are 15 companies that are presenting to the market machines and solutions needed on the market”, he emphasized.
The 5th Edition of Expo-indústria/2023, to be held from March 29th to April 1st, in the Special Economic Zone (ZEE) Luanda-Bengo, will bring together, among several sectors, the manufacturing industry, engineering and civil construction, as well as the food industry and agribusiness.
Participation in the fair has a minimum value of 320,000 kwanzas for a “stand” of nine square meters, creating a 20% discount for companies that are not from Luanda.
The purpose of the event is to make industries increase employment and improve the living conditions of populations and leverage new partnerships and businesses.
