East African Business and Entrepreneurship Conference & Exhibition 2017

The East African Business and Entrepreneurship Conference and Exhibition provides a platform for design thinking on innovative strategies to attract investment in the region by bringing on board a unique mix of creative people from diverse entrepreneurial sectors. The East African Business and Entrepreneurship Conference and Exhibition aims at providing an opportunity for business to business (B2B) and government to business (B2G) engagement. It is a platform for financiers and innovators to strengthen entrepreneurship in the EAC, a regional one-stop center for investment and trade opportunities. The East Africa Business and Entrepreneurship Conference and Exhibition is an annual event rotating in all partner states of the East African Community (EAC) co-organized in collaboration with the respective investment agencies. The inaugural 2016 edition, organized by the East African Business Council (EABC) with support of the Federation of German Industries (BDI), was successfully held on 10th to 13th October 2016 in Nairobi, Kenya. This year, the second edition of East Africa Business and Entrepreneurship Conference and Exhibition will be held from 10th to 12th October 2017 in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. The three-day conference will bring together high-level government and private sector decision makers from the EAC Partner States as well as entrepreneurs and investors from the region and abroad. The simultaneous exhibition will give participants the possibility to present themselves and serve as points of contact for their organizations and businesses. This years’ sector highlights aim at promoting regional integration by emphasizing the common cultural identity and reflecting the interests of the young generation. In addition, the East African Diaspora will be strongly engaged to amplify investment into the region.
