Description

In partnership with the Department for International Trade Africa, you're invited to join us in finding out how to do business effectively on the African continent and explore key market trends, risks and opportunities.

During the day, our speakers will explore 'Why Africa?', what lies ahead for these emerging markets and how we can support you in exporting to this region.

Our guest delegates will include:

  • Dr. Rob Daniel - Deputy Trade Commissioner, Department for International Trade Africa
  • Wendy Freeman - British Consul General designate in Alexandria from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office
  • Tolu Babalola - Head of Chargeable Services for South, West and North Africa, Department for International Trade Africa
  • Faridha Abbas - CEO, British Chambers of Commerce Kenya
  • Nerissa Govender - Regional Trade Advisor, Department for International Trade Africa

You'll also hear how to avoid the potential pitfalls from a South West business successfully exporting to Africa, and have the opportunity to meet with our team of African market specialists for tips and advice on winning orders in Africa. All key markets from the region will be represented at this event.
