How we make sure exhibitors meet the right buyers at the event?

Of course, exhibitors will benefit from our database of 35,000 visitors from our past exhibitions in Algeria, Egypt, Ethiopia, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Morocco and Nigeria. This is how we reach relevant decision makers.

In addition we are implementing a targeted digital visitor promotion campaign covering the entire continent.

And last but not least, we have contracted experienced African partners, who will support us in their respective countries to make the event a success:

  • Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia: fairtrade, Agroligne & institutions in the Maghreb
  • Ethiopia: Prana Events & Ethiopian institutions
  • Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda: B2B Africa & institutions in East Africa
  • Nigeria: AHK Nigeria & Nigerian institutions
  • Benin, Burkina Faso, Côte d'Ivoire, Ghana, Mali, Senegal, Togo: AHK West Africa & West African institutions
