Leading Africa Investor Event Globally
AFSIC, now in its 7th year, takes place 8th to 10th May 2019 in London. AFSIC is a highly focused investment event and is believed to be the largest Africa investment event taking place annually in Europe and one of the most important Africa investor events globally. Over 200 of Africa’s most important investors and business leaders are already confirmed as speakers. The success of the event resulted in it being SOLD OUT due to high demand in 2018 so early booking is advised.
1000+ Expected to Attend in 2019
Business leaders from around 40 African countries are expected to attend in 2019, and with over 250+ speakers and participants in our country focused sessions, and an expected 1000+delegates, AFSIC provides you with an unparalleled opportunity to develop and nurture a robust, high quality network of business contacts across the continent, providing multiple networking opportunities for African business leaders, investors and dealmakers to meet. A sophisticated Event and Meeting App allows delegates to prepare up to a month ahead for critical investment meetings allowing real deals to be concluded during the course of AFSIC.
Africa is the Next Big Investment Destination
Africa is the second fastest growing region in the world. Multiple indicators suggest that Africa has entered a cycle of strong economic growth that will match that experienced by Asia over the past decades. Global investors are positioning themselves to understand the increasingly evident opportunities across Africa in greater depth. However with 54 countries in Africa travel time and costs can be prohibitive so bringing together many of the continent’s most exciting companies into one event at one time has proven to be extremely attractive to business leaders from Africa, investors and dealmakers.
Results Focused Investment Event
AFSIC has a strong focus on results; making investment decisions, originating and executing transactions, and raising debt or equity capital are the key objectives for delegates attending AFSIC. The programme is designed to provide delegates with multiple opportunities to achieve these objectives, whether through presentations from many of the continent’s leading investors, or through attending the many formal and informal networking sessions during the event. This strong result focus has resulted in AFSIC gaining considerable popularity with investors, dealmakers and business leaders from across Africa.
The wide spread of business leaders attending from across Africa attracts a significant proportion of major institutional investors focused on investment into Africa. These investors include listed and private equity firms, direct investors, endowments, foundations, family offices, private banks, sovereign wealth funds, DFIs, IFIs, impact investors, microfinance investors alongside a wide range of African based investors, and fund of fund investors.
