About Africa Networking Events

Africa Business Communities moderates more than 180 Linkedin Groups  with a B2B interest in Africa. In this field, we are the biggest player in the world connecting more than 1,000,000 business professionals engaged in Africa. The people in these groups indicated that they want us to bring the LinkedIn communities alive.

That is the reason we have held events in Ghana-Accra, Kenya-Nairobi (2x) (link), Kigali-Rwanda, Amsterdam-The Netherlands.  We communicated the event through our LinkedIn groups and our other communication channels. The 150-250 people that visited our events asked us to continue organizing the events and they told us what they wanted. We learned the following from our members:

  • There are a lot of events in Africa, but usually very expensive and focussed on the big organizations and their chief officers
  • It should not be too expensive, but no problem to pay for their own drinks and food
  • There is not that much for Medium and Small Enterprises
  • They want to network with other business people and exchange experiences
  • No dull and long powerpoint presentations (they can see that on the internet)
  • They want to know who is coming to the event and what business interest they have
  • They want to follow-up

That is why we created – Africa Networking Events

Africa Networking Events provides the platform to start an event – and you can add the flavour you want:

Are you interested to start you own event?

Do you want to see whether there is an event near you?

The purpose of the Africa networking events is to bring alive our online communities – our LinkedIn Groups – and let members engage in face-to-face networking. We bring online and offline together. Our members indicated: online interaction is nice but we also need face-to-face contact.

In order to be able to organize and manage a large number of events, we seek cooperation with professional partners who can act as hosts of our events. We can facilitate many parties with ideas to organize an event about Africa and any kind of business.
