West Africa ​Water Expo: 2nd ​International ​Water & Waste ​Water ​Exhibition ​ which is ​organized by ​Elan Expo will ​be held on 11-​13 July 2019 at ​Landmark Centre ​at Lagos, ​Nigeria. ​


Nigeria is the ​one of the ​biggest country ​of Africa with ​its increasing ​population and ​annual GDP ​rates. With the ​increase of the ​population the ​urbanization ​process is ​speeding and ​the local ​people have low ​level access to ​improved water ​sources and ​sanitation.​

“Nigeria ​is not a water-​poor country, ​needs more ​investments.​”​

The General ​Manager of ELAN ​EXPO Mr. Suer ​AY  illustrates ​his opinions ​about the ​  Nigerian Water industry  as;

“Nigeria ​is not a water-​poor country, ​it needs more ​investments. ​Nigeria ​produces 1800 ​m3 water per ​capita annually;​ there are ​enough water ​resources for ​domestic, ​industrial, ​agricultural, ​hydropower, ​transportation, ​and recreational ​uses but there ​is more need ​for modern ​wastewater ​treatment ​facilities ​during the ​rapid ​urbanization ​process.  ​In the last ​year  Wawe Expo 2018  we served the ​local people to ​meet international ​suppliers for ​the  water and ​waste water ​treatment ​ water ​distribution ​equipments ​  ,  water meters  household water systems  water pumps  and other ​plumbing ​installations ​  .
