    Structure

    AFRICALLIA is not only designed for formal business meetings; guests are also welcomed to attend coffee-breaks, lunches, and dinners in a warm and friendly setting where potential connections can also be made.

A VERY HIGH-PROFILE EVENT

AFRICALLIA is supported by the highest authorities of Burkina Faso. It is the most important international economic event organized by the country. The opening ceremony is placed under the high patronage of the Burkina Faso Head of State.

VILLAGE EXHIBITORS

Other than the B2B meetings, the forum has developed and integrated an original concept called “villages”. Appreciated by many, these villages are networking and exchange opportunities for all attendees. 3 villages are expected this year at the forum:
The Partners Village

The partners village gathers all partner institutions and AFRICALLIA’s big sponsors. It is the ideal place to explore the different challenges related to accessing the ECOWAS zone; to discover opportunities offered by national, regional and international institutions, the sub-regional financial market and how to fund and secure investments, etc.… All present partners would have a stand where they can receive attendees.

The Experts Village

This village has been designed for experts in international commerce and trade (bankers, insurance companies, lawyers with experience in international rights, tax consultants, freight compagnies, experts in transport and logistics…). Participants have a chance to meet different experts, to benefit from their advises, and to easily access their services.

The International Village

This is the place for intermediary entities (chamber of commerce and/or support institutions to private sector) that assist their members and represent a country or a region.
