Agritech Expo wins prestigious AAXO ROAR award

Agritech Expo Zambia, has scooped its 3rd AAXO ROAR Award in honour of excellence in the exhibition and events industry on the continent during 2017.

The awards are organised by the Association of African Exhibition Organisers (AAXO).

For the second year in a row, Agritech Expo Zambia won the ROAR (Respect, Opportunities, Achievement, Recognition) award for Best Africa Bound Trade and Consumer Exhibition in the 12000+ sqm category.

Last year, the event received two accolades: also for Best Trade and Consumer Exhibition 12000+ sqm and for Distinction in Social Responsibility.

The expo has an outreach programme at the local Golden Valley Basic School in Chisamba, where, with the assistance of numerous event sponsors, it is assisting the school with much needed infrastructure upgrades, equipment supplies and management of the school’s farm.

“It is a great honour to have received this AAXO ROAR award for the second consecutive year” says Yolanda dos Santos, event manager.

“The success of Agritech Expo Zambia would not have been possible without its passionate team and committed partners that come together to deliver a platform that not only drives agribusiness but helps the progress to ensure food security whilst serving as an educational tool for sustainable development for Zambia and the SADC region.”

The fifth edition of Agritech Expo Zambia returns to GART in Chisamba again on 12 to14 April and is expected to gather more than 22 000 visitors, over 270 local and international exhibitors with 3500 VIP and large scale farmers.

Agritech Expo Zambia is owned by the Zambia National Farmers Union (ZNFU) and is organised by Spintelligent, leading Cape Town-based trade exhibition and conference organiser, and the African office of Clarion Events Ltd, based in the UK.

Another well-known agri event by Spintelligent is Farm-Tech Expo Kenya
