The Only African Food and Beverage Event You Should Attend

Food & Beverage Networking Event

Announcing: the first food and beverage event you should attend in Africa for 2022

This March 31, Business Club Africa is spearheading its first networking event in 2022 for all food and beverage professionals. Whether you’re a small and medium-sized enterprise (SMEs) or a large corporation, we invite and welcome you to join. The event will be the first of its kind to connect food and beverage professionals from Africa and all over the world via speed networking.

“If you’re interested in expanding, investing, or entering the food and beverage sector in Africa, this is the event to attend,” said Melanie Daigle, Business Africa Club’s co-founder. “It’s a golden ticket not only to meet and greet but also collaborate directly with the movers and shakers in the food and beverage industry.”

During the online event, participants will get to meet one-on-one with potential clients and partners for one hour straight. Much like speed dating, you’ll get to meet a new potential business connection every 5 minutes, just enough time to briefly present your business and yourself, how you could concretely collaborate and exchange e-business cards. The event platform will be open for three days, by the way. Imagine how you’ll use this time to build your contact list with other participants and add your name to theirs, too.

The point here is:

You’ll get to meet the biggest number of new key industry players for future collaborations. It’s even better than meeting in person because you’ll get to meet a lot of people in a short time. Forget about physical exhaustion, and do it from your office or home instead.

Furthermore, you may participate in region-specific networking events throughout Africa, from East to West, and North to South. So, if you’re looking for food and beverage leaders in a specific African country or region, it’ll be much easier, faster, and safer to reach them.

The good news is:

Members of Business Club Africa will also be present. They include regional heads of sales, procurement directors, distributors & retailers, investors, etc. And you could exchange valuable food and beverage industry insights with them. If that’s something you’re looking forward to, don’t skip this food and beverage networking opportunity.

One new contact in the right position, region, or company, could make all the difference. The magic of Africa is in its people. So, go out and meet them. Get your ticket today and join the Business Club Africa’s Food & Beverage Networking Event this Mar 31.

Why You Should Attend?

Any savvy food and beverage professional that has been in the business knows that connections are a crucial variable in success. Business Club Africa is a group of high-performance individuals not only in food and beverage, but also in farming, agriculture, equipment, and other sectors.

One more thing, it’s important:

Africa has more nations than America, Asia, and Europe; more room for advancement. It’s an emerging economy, but you’ll need to know your way around to succeed. Starting with building and maintaining your network is crucial.

It’s one thing to read about industry reports and trends, but talking with actual professionals is priceless. It gives you a competitive advantage to know what’s going on in the real world. Then again, communicating with real people “in the know” is key. That’s why you should show up at the food and beverage networking event by Business Club Africa.

Feel free to contact Business Club Africa for all inquiries, preparations, and questions about the event. Remember, it’s a time-sensitive message. The event will be on March 31, which means you have a limited window to get your ticket. While it’s the first networking event of the year, there are other potential events on the horizon.

What does this mean for you?

It’s your opportunity to become acquainted and meet potential clients and business partners in Africa. Nothing similar has been done on this scale, with hundreds of Club members and non-members coming together to network.

In conclusion, you don’t want to miss it. If we have failed to convey key information, do contact the Club representatives, they have all the answers you need. Get your ticket today and prepare to enrich your contact list with valuable connections in Africa.
