Bringing Africa’s leaders together

The Africa CEO Forum which is held annually, will see its fourth edition take place from 21 to 22 March in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire. The Africa CEO Forum is one of the most important events on the continent, as it provides a platform for participants to address their views and opinions about topical issues directly affecting their business and the environment within which they operate.

The event plays host to over 800 attendees, with 500 of these including CEOs, as well as 200 prominent African leaders and international figures.
