Our online communities of more than 1,000,000 professionals engaged in business in Africa, expressed the need of an offline set-up of connecting with other business professionals. Africa Business Communities started Africa Networking Events and invites local hosts to cooperate in order to grow to:
Just a regular networking event in a city in Africa or outside Africa, could be a LinkedIn group that wants to meet live, or just a group of people that is interested to meet each other. The event may be combined with lunch, dinner, or drinks, our mission is to facilitate the real life networking. And the real life networking may be enhanced with online table seating, online organized one-to-one meetings or online pre-registration to get access to workshops.
The Hamburg edition of the Africa Networking Event was a worthwhile gathering to exchange thoughts, experiences and ideas about current and future business opportunities, even beyond the current regional focus area of our organisation. It has proven to be a useful forum to openly discuss the challenges and opportunities of doing business in Africa in an informal and comfortable setting. Compliments to the hosts. Looking forward to the next event.
The Africa Business Communities Network event in Hamburg was simply fantastic. From a business point of view, I'm glad to say that the event worked well as it promoted interaction between professionals from diverse fields of interest. The venue, the people and the environment met my expectations from a professional and social perspective.
Thank you for organizing such a marvellous event in Hamburg, Germany. It was a great opportunity for me to meet great people from different fields, and it was mostly beneficial to my research projects. Once again, thank you for creating a friendly and interactive platforms for business and social minded individuals.
The networking event we attended, hosted by African Business Communities created a relaxed environment to meet new people in Accra’s busy business setting. Held at Movenpick Hotel, it was the perfect place to have a drink and meet people from a range of industries. I would definitely attend another one!
It was a great event in Amsterdam at the Amstel Hotel. Loved the location (could park right in front of the hotel). Spoke with interesting entrepreneurs. Made closer connection with 1 company in the Netherlands.
I am still in contact with many of the people I met at an Africa Business Communities event in Accra-Ghana and I am looking forward to the next one. The work that Africa Business Communities is doing to combine online interactions with offline networking has been very useful to me.
This network event is exactly what is needed to finally see people face to face with whom I have been mailing or calling. Now I know the faces behind the voices and it was very helpful, to informally go deeper into some considerations that are overlooked in the fast digital communications.
