The event for manufacturers of manufacturing equipment!

The only Trade show in Africa focusing on the full manufacturing value chain for the African Continent, therefore providing a platform for companies to introduce new innovations and solutions to strategic decision makers from Africa.

These decision makers are looking to either invest or build new manufacturing plants or procure the latest innovations in machinery, equipment and technology as well as turnkey solutions to improve their existing production output.

Collocated with Africa Automation Technology Fair

The 2023 edition of AATF will be the 12th edition of the event which has been running for the last 25 years.

With additional product categories and new show innovations in 2023, Africa Automation Technology Fair remains relevant in an ever-changing industry, identifying and engaging the latest industry innovations and megatrends.

We remain focused to bring the latest automation technology developments and it can all be found at Africa Automation Technology Fair 2023, the most comprehensive and focused automation technology platform in Africa.

The transformation and the growth of the industry remains the passion of AATF2023. It is for this reason that we have partnered with industry associations and organisations to ensure to provide quality content and a world class showcase. The event will also have CPD accredited workshops.

The ideal partner event to FMA.


Mask wearing and presentation of vaccine certificates or negative COVID-19 tests are no longer mandatory to enter a venue in South Africa.  We leave these decisions to the individual attendee, but strongly encourage vulnerable people and those with underlying medical conditions to take appropriate health precautions.
