Melbourne to host first Australia Africa business summit

The Australia Africa Chamber of Commerce (AACC) has announced that the first Australia Africa Business Summit is happening in Melbourne from May 12-14, 2024.

This summit is a great chance for people and businesses looking to benefit from the growing opportunities in Australia-Africa business relations. Over two days, the summit brings together government representatives, private sector leaders, and industry experts for mutual growth and collaboration.

Attending the summit gives you exclusive access to top decision-makers, executives, and trade experts in various sectors like agribusiness, mining, technology, energy, healthcare, education, manufacturing, tourism, finance, and government.

With over 500 in-person delegates each day, the event provides extensive networking opportunities. Besides networking, the summit is a platform for sharing knowledge, gaining insights into emerging trends, and understanding the complexities of Australia-Africa trade relations.

Whether you’re looking for business partnerships, investment chances, or staying updated on international trade, the Australia Africa Business Summit is an event you shouldn’t miss.

AACC President Duncan Harris expressed his satisfaction in approving the summit, especially now that many prominent African delegations can confirm their attendance.

“Following feedback from our African partners we reluctantly decided to postpone the Summit from our original slot in October. The recent announcement of the African Union (AU) being permanently admitted as members of the G20 had proven to be a major distraction to geopolitical discourse but with time there is now clarity emerging.

“I am pleased to advise that our key presenters, namely Senator the Hon Don Farrell, Minister for Trade & Tourism, Commonwealth of Australia and Wamkele Keabetswe Mene, Secretary General, Africa Continental Free Trade Area Secretariat have reconfirmed their attendance.

“The Summit venue, the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre is world-class and we are looking forward to showcasing it, the City of Melbourne and State of Victoria for our international and domestic delegates and attendees.

“We have been incredibly pleased with the interest from delegates, sponsors and presenters. Our key theme – New Bridges. New Connections – will focus delegates on opportunities for two-way trade and commerce particularly in mining, education, agriculture and professional services,” said Mr Harris.

The Australia Africa Business Summit 2024 aims to elevate Africa in the Australian trade and investment landscape. It provides a unique platform to connect with key government representatives and private sector leaders, fostering business collaboration between Australia and Africa.

The Australia Africa Chamber of Commerce (AACC), a national organization, is dedicated to facilitating trade with Africa. They offer high-quality research, networking events, and business matching services. The AACC also arranges trade missions to and from Africa, providing access to business and investment opportunities in both regions.

Emphasizing the importance of connection and communication, the AACC believes these fundamentals are crucial for building stronger business relations. Membership is available for those interested in exclusive content and tailor-made programs.

General Admission for the conference, available until April 30th, 2024, is priced at $950. This includes two full days at the event with access to all presentations and breakout sessions. Additionally, participants will be provided with Morning Tea, Lunch, and Afternoon Tea over the course of the two conference days.
