Saitex for products – connecting exporters, top brands and manufacturers with importers, distributors and retailers.
For 25 years SAITEX has been the major hub for trade development in Africa, attracting hundreds of global suppliers and thousands of visitors from across the continent.
While Africa will continue to grow its manufacturing, it is a net importer of goods and services.
Why Africa, why SAITEX and why now:
The Africa Continental Free Trade Agreement is well advanced, offering an EU-style single market to at least 26 African countries.
Major political regime change in South Africa and neighbouring countries offers increasing stability and growth opportunities and renewed commitment to plug Africa into the global economy.
Government leaders recognise the need for safe investment environments to drive economic growth.
Africa has a population of 1.2 billion people and a fast-growing middle class.
SAITEX is the only multi-sector exhibition and conference in Africa providing unparalleled access to all industries.
