The East African Business and Entrepreneurship Conference and Exhibition is an annual event rotating in all EAC Partner States with its’ first edition successfully held in 2016 in Nairobi, Kenya and the second in 2017 in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

The 3rd East African Business and Entrepreneurship Conference and Exhibition themed, “Towards a Digital Economy, Getting ready for the 4th Industrial revolution” will be held in March 2019. The two-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 conference will focus on the Digital Economy and evaluate how the EAC policy and regulatory framework is currently set to spur growth in this sector and to enhance the Integration process. We expect to have a closer look at how global trends and the massive shift in the economic mindset and environment are reflected in the EAC vision and development strategies with a special focus on the EAC Industrialization strategy 2012-2032.The conference will further enlighten the audience on the business opportunities in this sector.

With a massive trend towards digitalization and online services, physical geographical borders become increasingly irrelevant. This is a chance for the EAC to increase and ease trade on the one hand but also a challenge when it comes to protecting local markets therefore signaling the need for a robust regulatory framework.

It will offer the opportunity to discuss, identify missing links and chart out appropriate recommendations to promote a conducive business environment for true innovation, economies of scale and leap to the full actualization the EAC Industrialization strategy 2012-2032.

The conference and exhibition will showcase investment opportunities in the region as well as innovative market developments in the areas of IoT (Internet of Things), energy, agri-business, health, mobility, fin-tech and e-commerce.
