Lagos, Nigeria – The Nigerian Association of Chambers of Commerce, Industry, Mines, and Agriculture (NACCIMA), in collaboration with BtoB Events Ltd from the United Kingdom, is thrilled to announce the hosting of the 4th edition of the West Africa Automotive Show (WAAS). This prestigious event is set to unfold at the Landmark Centre, Lagos, from May 14-16, 2024, marking an unparalleled convergence of innovation, expertise, and economic advancement for the automotive industry in Nigeria and across West Africa.

The WAAS is the region’s premier automotive trade show, with this year’s edition bringing together over 150 exhibitors from more than 30 countries, including national pavilions from economic powerhouses such as China, India, and Poland. The Automotive Components Manufacturers Association of India (ACMA) will notably participate with 30 companies, showcasing a commitment to fostering major collaborations and investments in West Africa’s automotive manufacturing sector.

Celebrating Nigeria’s entrepreneurial spirit, local brands such as Saglev Motors, CFAO, Cochairs, and C Woermann will be featured prominently. The show will also see partnerships with key Nigerian associations, including NACCIMA, NATA, MOMTAN, NAMA, ASPMDA, NADDC, and others, as well as regional partners such as the Chamber of Commerce of Gambia, Abossey Okai Ghana, and Magazine market Kumasi, solidifying the vision of a unified West African automotive market.

An Economic Powerhouse for the Region
