West Africa Water Expo 2019
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.
“WATER IS THE LIFE”
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 .
Last year we hosted 86 local and international sectoral giants such as; Wilo, Amiblu, Deser Kimya, Okeval, Etcon, Genaq, Imerrys Filtration, Lonza, Oceana, Seagle, Water Health, Drwater, Aquamatch, Zenith, Winelight, Wyckomar, Geospace and Male Integrated from 17 countries ; Belgium, China, Egypt, Ghana, India, Kuwait, Lebanon, Nigeria, South Africa, Turkey, U.A.E., Switzerland, USA, South Korea, Japan, Germany and Cyprus. During the marketing campaign, our team provided 150 media partners, sent 1 million invitations, 100 thousand SMSs, and published 137 website advertisements, radio and newspaper advertisements on Guardian, Daily Trust newspapers and Nigeria Info FM and Wazobia FM. We promoted our events via social media also; we have around 250 updated Facebook posts.
