Connecting African Markets: About the Intra-African Trade Fair 2023

You are invited to attend the Intra-African Trade Fair 2023 on 9 – 15 November 2023 at the Egypt International Exhibition Centre and Al Manara International Conference Centre in Cairo, Egypt.

The fair will offer an opportunity to accelerate the growth of intra-African trade and investment. IATF2023 will provide a unique platform for facilitating trade and investment information exchange in support of increased intra-African trade, especially in the context of implementing the African Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA), which entered into force on 30 May 2019. Trading under the AfCFTA officially commenced on 1 January 2021. The event will enable businesses to access an integrated African market of over 1.3 billion people with a combined Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of over US$3.5 trillion created under the AfCFTA.

Why you should attend

IATF2023 is aimed at achieving the following objectives:

  • Bring together continental and global players to showcase and exhibit their goods and services, explore business and investment opportunities in Africa.
  • Provide a platform for B2B and B2G exchanges and to serve as a marketplace where buyers and sellers of goods and services meet and explore business opportunities.
  • Provide a platform to share trade, investment and market information with various stakeholders including investors, SMEs, the informal sector and Africans in Diaspora.
  • Provide a platform to discuss topical issues relating to the African Continental Free Trade Agreement, as well as issues affecting Intra-African trade and investment, and to identify and offer practical and effective solutions to address the challenges.
