The first Analytica Lab Africa took place this July at the Gallagher Convention Center in Johannesburg with 148 exhibitors from 15 countries presenting their products and solutions for the African market.

“The past three days have shown that there is a high market demand for the technology and know-how we bring together at Analytica Lab Africa. Exhibitor and visitor expectations were exceeded. The exhibitors noted the high quality of visitors to their stands, especially from market end-users,” said Reinhard Pfeiffer, Deputy CEO of Messe München.

Analytica Lab Africa emerged from Lab Africa following their acquisition in 2017 by Messe München, known for their biannual Analytica trade fair. The acquisition of Lab Africa allowed the company to expand their regional trade fairs to include at least one on the Africa continent.

“Analytica Lab Africa is reaching European standards of excellence. We have seen more customers than expected and the quality of visitors has been very good,” said Nikolai von Knauer, General Manager of Sartorius, South Africa.

Following the success of the event, Messe München plan to continue the series with the next event to be held from
13–15 July 2021, at the Gallagher Convention Centre in Johannesburg.
