Africa Trade and Investment Convention is a business conference and exhibition designed specifically:

o To promote and facilitate international trade between Africa and Europe, North America and Asia.
o To facilitate foreign direct investment into Africa
o Provide a platform for businesses to expand into new markets
o Build networks and technical capacities for entrepreneurs

Africa Trade and Investment Convention will gather 1000-plus key economic players such as government delegations and policymakers, high-profile African leaders, project developers, investors, and entrepreneurs.

Africa is the fastest growing region in the world. Evidence suggest that Africa has now entered a cycle of strong economic growth. Investors are positioning themselves to understand the opportunities across Africa.

Africa Trade and Investment Convention becomes the one stop shop for the 54 African countries to show case the opportunities available as travelling to all the countries is prohibitive.

Africa Trade and Investment Convention is focused on highlighting Africa’s investment opportunities while creating an opportunity for Africa’s, entrepreneurs, business leaders to meet with investors Over 100 speakers will provide detailed insight into the economic transformation that many parts of Africa are currently experiencing.

The event provides networking opportunities for African entrepreneurs, business leaders, and investors to connect. These include matchmaking sessions dedicated to making the process of meeting investors easier, country-specific presentations, sector-focused sessions, and evening networking meetings. This will ensure investment deals are concluded during the convention.

The 2-days event will provide a unique platform to gain strategic knowledge about African investment opportunities and business networking. The convention will cover economic sectors such as manufacturing and infrastructure development, agribusiness, Renewable Energy, Real Estate transportation, Digital Technology tourism, Financing SMEs, Women in Business, Healthcare, telecommunications and Fintech, and natural resources sectors. High-potential projects in Africa will be presented to international investors. Featured agenda items will include projects showcase, capacity building workshops deal marketplace, exhibition, country presentations, and among others.

Securing finance is a big hurdle for local entrepreneurs as well as foreign companies operating in Africa. Companies that approach banks for investment in Africa are met with doubts and skepticism. All the existing possibilities, however, need to be explored. Whether you are a start-up or a bigger company looking to invest in Africa, the Africa Trade and Investment Convention is the place to be. How to secure financing and markets for your business will be our core business at the conference!
