The first event of TTBois Expo is planned from June 29 to 2 July 2, 2017, in the premises of the International Fairgrounds Ofec in Casablanca (Morocco). Cepra’s partner for this initiative is Forum7, a Morocco-based organisation with extensive experience in successful trade fairs.

“We have been working a lot on this concept,” says Dario Corbetta, Acimall director. “According to our analysis and the data collected during several missions in the region, the time is ripe to organise an exhibition that ‘supports’ the development of wood and wood based materials production in Northern Africa.”

The exhibition will be open to the manufacturers of technology and furniture components from all over the world, to promote the best European and global technology in a showcase that will become a reference for most of the African continent, says Acimall.

The exhibition – to be held concurrently with Simetal 2017, international exhibition for the metal working industry – will be part of the strategic plan for the development of Morocco's national industry in the 2014-2020 period.
