Third Party Event

17 Nov 2018 - 19 Nov 2018

Now in its third edition, Destination Africa is an annual B2B sourcing exhibition for apparel, textiles and home textiles. It brings international buyers from the USA and Europe to meet certified African manufacturers in a hub for the continent’s trade industry: Cairo, Egypt. This year’s event will take place on November 17, 18 and 19, 2018 at the Royal Maxim Palace Kempinski Hotel.
Established in 2016, Destination Africa enjoyed major success in its first two editions. In 2017 more than 200 international buyers from prominent worldwide brands attended and over 70 skilled African manufacturers exhibited their apparel and textiles. This specialized industry event is to put a spotlight on Africa’s skills and resources, and connect the ever-growing network of professionals in the apparel and textiles industry worldwide. Ultimately, Destination Africa helps African countries compete in an ever-expanding global economy.
African manufacturers from Egypt to South Africa, Lesotho to Kenya, Morocco to Zimbabwe and Tunisia to Tanzania come to display the craftsmanship, talent and artistry that goes into transforming fabrics into apparel. Their work is exhibited to specialized American and European buyers and decision makers. 
The first two days of the event are dedicated to the sourcing exhibition; the third day is an international conference where industry experts from all over the world come to speak about Africa as a sourcing hub, recent industry trends and future business opportunities. For three days straight, Destination Africa highlights the continent’s economic opportunities and supports the development of the textile industry in Africa.
Destination Africa is organized by the Egyptian Exporters Association – ExpoLink, in cooperation with the Readymade Garments Export Council, the Textile Export Council and the Home Textiles Export Council.
