The largest annual gathering of the African private sector
The 8th edition of the AFRICA CEO FORUM will take place on 9 and 10 March 2020 at the Sofitel Abidjan Hotel Ivoire in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire.
Founded in 2012, the AFRICA CEO FORUM is an annual gathering of decision-makers from the largest African companies, as well as international investors, multinational executives, heads of state, ministers, and representatives of the main financial institutions operating on the continent.
As a platform for high-level business meetings and a place to share experiences and to identify trends that affect the business world, the AFRICA CEO FORUM is committed to offering concrete and innovative solutions to help the continent and its companies move forward. Through its ‘Women in Business‘ and ‘Family Business‘ initiatives, it also aims to increase the representation of women in decision-making positions on the continent, and to support the transformation of African family businesses.
1,800 participants from 70 countries, including 40 African states, came to Kigali for the 2019 edition of the Forum. Among them were almost 800 CEOs, four heads of state, 100 ministers and financial donors, and more than 150 journalists from Africa and overseas.
The AFRICA CEO FORUM is part of Jeune Afrique media group. Since 2018 the Forum also hosts the Women in Business Annual Leadership Meeting, devoted to women business leaders. In 2019 the Forum launched the Africa CEO Network, the most powerful and influential network of business leaders in Africa.
