African Distributor Conference a Huge Success
We recently successfully brought together the representatives of no fewer than twelve African countries at the first African Distributor Conference in Johannesburg. The event was hosted by us at the start of June 2019, and it ran concurrent with the Madex Design Expo 2019, which was hosted at the Sandton Convention Centre from the 5th to the 6th of June 2019. We also had a stand at Madex, an event which had no fewer than 40 hand-picked speakers on topics relevant to marketing, design, and advertising. The delegates to the African Distributor Conference also had the opportunity to visit our stand at the Madex Design Expo as part of our two-day programme.
The African Distributor Conference gave delegates the opportunity to meet peers in the industry from other countries on the continent. With the industry having the potential for growth, events, such as the African Distributor Conference, are important for forging partnerships in developing the industry to its full potential.
Delegates expressed their appreciation for the comprehensive programme, quality of content, and ability to meet with industry leaders from around the continent. The event included a factory tour, various product demonstrations, and presentations about trends in the industry. It also included a hands-on workshop on the development and growth of valuable partnerships.
Part of our aim in hosting such events is to address the need for a network of distributors, enabling collaboration on projects across the continent. Our network is already extensive, which is evident in the fact that we have distributors in Nigeria, Rwanda, Kenya, Namibia, Mozambique, Botswana, Eswatini, Ethiopia, Zimbabwe, and Lesotho.
The feedback from delegates to the conference was overwhelmingly positive. The Director of Exhibition Stand Contractors in Kenya, Charles Campbell Clause, noted that the event was highly beneficial for ESC. He expressed his appreciation for the chance to have met so many counterparts from other countries on the continent.
The Managing Director of Africast Conferences and Exhibitions in Zambia, Chimwemwe Nyirenda noted that our company plays an important role in assisting stand builders on the continent and helping them to stay abreast of latest developments in the industry.
