Networking

Networking is hard-wired into the fabric of AFSIC which is why it has become one of the most important conduits of investment into Africa.

We are extremely proud of and grateful for the fabulous range of speakers, presenters, moderators and chairs that we attract each year.  However, in addition to the mainstream agenda the real heart of AFSIC centres on the meetings that are held within the confines of the event. With 1,500+ delegates expected to attend in 2020, delegates have the opportunity to arrange multiple high quality, investment focused meetings within a concentrated period of time as well as benefit from the many free flowing networking events built into the agenda.

MEET AFRICAN DEALMAKERS EVENT

The Meet African Dealmakers event takes place in the historic County Hall, Westminster, with an enviable location next to the London Eye and with breathtaking views over the British Houses of Parliament and Big Ben.

COUNTRY FOCUSED SESSIONS

In AFSIC 2020 we have around 30 Country focused sessions varying from 1 hour to half a day focused on highlighting attractive investment opportunities within a specific country. 

NETWORKING SESSIONS

Free flowing Networking Sessions have been built into the AFSIC 2020 Agenda.  These high impact dynamic sessions are structured to maximise your opportunity to connect with Africa’s most important investors, dealmakers, business leaders and service providers

QUICKFIRE SESSIONS

Quickfire sessions offer some of Africa’s most interesting businesses and funds the opportunity to make a quick presentation to delegates outlining the key merits of their investment proposition. 

EVENT AND MEETING APP

The AFSIC  Event and Meeting App allows all registered delegates to contact each other and book meetings at specific locations up to a month prior to AFSIC, thus maximising your chances of having a string of really high quality interactions during AFSIC.
