Supported by the IE Singapore and other trade agencies and chambers of commerce and industries in ASEAN, the premiere AABE 2017 will kick off at the Sandton Convention Centre, Johannesburg, South Africa, from 6 – 8 November 2017, while the following edition will be held in Singapore, in 2018.
The expo, led by the Singapore Manufacturing Federation (SMF) and Conference & Exhibition Management Services (CEMS), aims to introduce African businesses to the newly established ASEAN Economic Community (AEC), as the two regions ramp up their bilateral trade and investment cooperation in the face of global economic uncertainties.
AABE 2017 is expected to attract some 100 key exhibitors from Africa and ASEAN countries. In addition to the myriad of exhibiting sectors, the AABE series will also feature onsite business matching services as well as a hosted buyers’ programme specially tailored to bring in quality buyers from the AU and ASEAN to the event. Held in conjunction with AABE 2017 would be an Africa-ASEAN Business Forum, highlighting the immense business opportunities in the two economic regions.
