HOW DOES IT WORK?
AFRICALLIA is a B2B forum. Participants at AFRICALLIA have the opportunity to engage in pre-arranged B2B meetings of 30 minutes each.
Companies interested in participating are requested to fill out a registration form in advance; with information on their field of work and their center of interest.
Our secured platform give access to guests’ profiles allowing all participants to easily choose their appointments based on their interests. Attendees can meet up to 15 companies in two-days.
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. These are all opportunities where potential business 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.
Please refer to the program details and organize your agenda accordingly.
Other than the B2B meetings, the forum has developed and integrated an original concept called “villages”. Appreciated by many, these villages are additional networking and exchange opportunities for all attendees. 3 villages are expected this year at the forum:
