Africa’s Big 7 postponed to 23 – 25 August 2021
Based on an abundance of consultations with internal and external stakeholders, the decision has been made to postpone Africa’s Big 7 to 23 – 25 August 2021, to now take place at the TicketPro Dome. Our stakeholders felt that a later date would allow more time for vaccines to be distributed and COVID mitigation effects to spread, meaning a safer and more productive event for all.
Foremost in our thinking is the ability to keep our stakeholders, attendees, exhibitors and staff safe while keeping risk down to a minimum, at the same time recognising that the sectors in which we operate have a higher need than ever before to connect buyers and sellers to ensure the survival of their businesses. We remain convinced that our events offer a proven ROI to participants and this is why we are determined to hold an event in 2021.
In addition to the postponement, we have added a complete hybrid offering to the show – click here for more information. The hybrid access offers the best of both worlds – engage face to face with customers and colleagues at the live show, and connect virtually with those that cannot attend. In this way we believe we offer value to our stakeholders to ensure a solid order pipeline going into 2022.
