Advancing Africa together

Meetings Africa 2013

The business events trade exhibition Meetings Africa is a showcase for Africa’s diverse business event offerings. It’s the place where Africa’s business events industry professionals gather together to network and create mutually beneficial partnerships.

The South African National Convention Bureau (SANCB) will, for the first time, host Meetings Africa. The SANCB has introduced a number of changes to the Meetings Africa format to ensure greater opportunities for delegates to do business.

This year, the popular Meetings Africa educational seminars will be held on one dedicated Seminar Day (18 February 2013) – before the start of the trade exhibition – to give exhibitors the opportunity to attend. SAACI (Southern Africa Association for the Conference Industry) and the Event Greening Forum are among those who will participate in Seminar Day.  

Meetings Africa Association Day will also take place on 18 February. It is designed to build the national and pan-African association communities and promote their engagement with international associations.

Two full trade exhibition days will be held on 19 and 20 February, giving buyers and exhibitors ample time to attend scheduled meetings. Delegates are encouraged to use the highly effective online Meetings Africa Business MatchmakingTM system to pre-schedule their Meetings Africa appointments to get the most out of the show.

The Meetings Africa Golf Day, taking place at Randpark Golf Course on 21 February, provides corporate executives, hosted buyers and exhibitors with further opportunities to network in a more relaxed environment.

Over 50 African association buyers, 200 international hosted buyers and 200 local corporate and government buyers are expected to attend the event.
