AFS, the world's first digital Africa exhibition, was officially launched on July 20, 2020, which was organized by MIE EVENTS DMCC. The online exhibition helped enterprises grab orders and expand the market through its innovative exhibition form of "online exhibition + accurate matching".More than 300 food exhibitors from 16 countries will connect with buyers through the GTW platform.
Africa's food processing industry holds huge potential for growth: by 2040, it is anticipated that the value of food purchased in East and Southern Africa will grow seven-fold. To harness the potential of this sector we have created AFS – VE, a digital event launching on our own virtual platform Global Trade Week (GTW) designed to help you transform your offline exhibitions into online exhibition. An innovative platform that eliminates time and space, where visitors can search in a live environment for manufacturers and products online, communicate with suppliers in real time, and book video meetings and conferences very conveniently. We also offer certificated supplier recommendation from the 1000’s of exhibitors for free.
