Propelling commerce, connecting leaders and building partnerships for Africa

The ALN Africa Investment Conference has been held annually since 2014 with the objective of spurring investment into Africa, connecting industry and policy leaders and promoting the continent. The conference serves as an effective platform for dialogue on critical commercial and policy topics, to encourage partnerships and to stimulate deal making.

The fifth edition of the ALN Africa Investment Conference will cover discussions on the risks and rewards of opening Africa up for business, entry strategies, implications of the adoption of disruptive technology, the rise of African mega-cities, the appetite to finance deals, how to run family businesses, the impact of the push for renewable energy sources, hot markets and more.

Attendance is on an invite-only basis, and ALN carefully vets the list of attendees to ensure calibre and relevance.
