Third Party Event

08 Dec 2018 - 09 Dec 2018

Africa 2018, held in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt on 8-9 December, is set to be the biggest B2B and B2G forum to take place on the continent this year. The event will attract over 1000 high-level government and private sector leaders, together with international investors and financiers. Over 120 renowned thought leaders from Africa and beyond will participate in a lively two-day programme featuring keynote speakers, interactive panel discussions and expert presentations.


The forum will also host a Young Entrepreneurs Day to showcase emerging business talent from across the continent and a special series of events to celebrate Women Empowering Africa, culminating in a gala dinner. There will also be CEO roundtables where business leaders will discuss how the continent can unlock more investment opportunities and jointly develop solutions to foster greater private sector growth. A Deal Room will offer a tailored platform to connect selected companies with capital, while special partner events will focus on issues relating to infrastructure, finance and energy.


With Egypt taking over the chair of the African Union next year, this promises to be an event that will help shape Africa’s agenda in 2019. The unique business-to-business and business-to-government platform will offer an outstanding venue to share knowledge, network and capture key insights into industry dealings and investment opportunities across the continent.


This year’s forum will focus on fostering intra-African investments and plans to create the world’s largest trading bloc of 1.2bn people. The gathering will offer an ideal opportunity for business leaders, policymakers and government representatives to discuss the wide-ranging measures required to facilitate deeper regional economic integration. Special focus will be given to the role of the private sector as a catalyst for driving sustainable economic development and investment within an Africa-wide trade bloc.
