An international exhibition for the automotive industry is slated for Accra from 7-8 September, this year at the International Conference Centre to exclusively showcase latest cars, motorbikes, spare parts, car accessories, auto insurance and loan services to a highly targeted audience.
Dubbed â€śAccra International Motor Fairâ€ť, it is designed to bring together under one roof major players, stakeholders and consumers of automotive products and services from Ghana and beyond.
Some targeted exhibitors are Automobile Dealers (New and Used); Accessories Manufactures (Tyres, Batteries, Car Parts, Car Alarms, Hands-Free Equipment, etc); Lubricant Manufacturers and Dealers; Motor Finance Companies (Banks, Leasing companies, etc);Motor Insurance Companies; Dealers in Allied Services and Products ( Car Hire & Rentals, Bus Services, etc) and Ministries, Departments and Agencies operating in the automotive sector.
Paul Asinor, Executive Director of OML Africa, organizers of the event, said, â€śAs an emerging market with the discovery of oil and gas in commercial quantities, a growing middle class in one of the world’s fastest growing economies, Ghana represents a fertile market in the automotive industry. The need for a world-class motor convention like what pertains in the United States and other parts of the world will see the Accra Motor Fair serving as a stimulant for the growth, development and sustainability of this lucrative but often neglected automotive business market.â€ť
The Accra International Motor Fair will also present an affluent audience from businesses, organisations and high net worth individuals who simply do not have the time to conduct research when making a new vehicle purchase; who have no time to visit a car showroom and who simply do not know what is really available when it comes to buying a car, car parts and accessories, car insurance and latest car financing schemes in Ghana.
It is expected that a combined audience of over 3,000 visitors will enjoy the event this year.”
