Third Party Event

07 Dec 2017 - 09 Dec 2017

We are delighted to invite you to the Africa 2017 Forum that will take place in Sharm El Sheikh from 7-9 December.


The Forum, held under the high patronage of President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi, will bring together some of the continent’s most important and influential business leaders as well as government delegations from 30 countries.


Africa 2017 will be the biggest and most high level B2B and B2G event to take place in Africa this year and is widely accepted as the premier gathering for the African private sector and business community, a gathering that will convene over 1,000 business owners, industrialists and financiers who will broker new partnerships and investment opportunities that will fast track African private sector growth.


Last year’s edition attracted 6 heads of government and over 1,000 participants from 45 countries, and we have already secured the participation of 70+ speakers, all experts in their respective fields.


On the eve of the Forum, on the 7th December, we will be organising a Young Entrepreneurs Day, where we will organise practical workshops to help some of Africa’s most promising companies scale up their businesses as well as a deal room to connect investors with fast-growth companies.


As a business leader with a specific interest in Africa, I hope you will join us for this unique gathering. To secure your place as a delegate, please register online by October 8th via the following link.
