The 2024 edition of the Africa Business Summit is expected to bring together more than 2,500 change makers from across Africa, Europe, Asia, Oceania and the Americas, making this the most important gathering for top decision makers in the region and beyond.
The conference program at the 3-day Summit will comprise of high-level keynote speeches and panel discussions plus sponsored industry and country-focused sessions. It will also feature fireside chats with influential people and change makers who are making waves – and who are also inspiring the next phase of business leaders in the Continent.
To add some spice into the proceedings, the Summit will also have a number of premium networking opportunities including lunches, dinners and a special awards ceremony night to celebrate some of Africa’s leading companies and individuals that have made their mark in accelerating Africa’s growth and transformation.
Further, the Summit will feature more than 100 multinationals, regional conglomerates, local and start-up companies that will be showcasing their latest products and services to the attendees at the extensive Expo Hall – providing new technologies and ideas that are required as Africa transitions into a major player in the World’s economy.
At the Summit, participants will delve deep into how to enhance strategic leadership in Africa; boost business performance and trade within Africa; improve local resources utilisation and manufacturing to meet the rising demand for goods and services; advance personal and community health and food security for the growing population; and how to accelerate digitalisation, investments and sustainability across Africa, among other critical issues.
The theme at the 2024 edition of the Summit will be TAKING THE LEAP: ACCELERATING BUSINESSES GROWTH, STRATEGIC LEADERSHIP & AFRICAN TRANSFORMATION THROUGH NEW TECHNOLOGIES, which fits perfectly with the Summit’s main agenda of providing the platform where new ideas on business innovation, leadership transformation and African growth can be debated and analysed by key decision makers across the Continent and beyond.

The Africa Business Summit is inspired by some of Africa’s leading voices, such as:If I had challenges in my company, I would not hesitate to sell assets to remain afloat, to get to the better times, because it doesn’t make any sense for me to keep any assets and then suffocate the whole organization.
