African business bonanza for freight forwarders

The 2nd African Regional Forwarders Conference is set to be the premier networking opportunity for independent freight forwarders in the fast-growing and vibrant African market.

Over 350 freight forwarding delegates will gather in Nairobi, Kenya, from 26-28 June for two days of highly-productive One-on-One business meetings and a host of social networking functions.

By ‘Bringing the World to Africa’, the conference will attract top independent companies from around the world to forge new partnerships and create highly profitable revenue streams with the best African freight forwarding agents.

The 1st African Regional Forwarders Conference, held at the same venue in December 2010, sold out well in advance and this second event is likely to be heavily oversubscribed. The feedback from the inaugural event was extremely positive and this second edition will provide opportunities for all agents including those that failed to secure a delegate place in December.

In addition a limited number of high-profile meeting booths are available for delegates looking to maximize impact and create a unique and invaluable profile for their companies.

The conference is open to all independent freight forwarding companies from around the globe looking to expand their business on the international stage. The conference is the only event dedicated entirely to the freight forwarding and logistics sector in Africa.

Support for the event is strong from every region within Africa and is supported and endorsed by a wide range of associations including the Ghana Institute of Freight Forwarders, the Council for the Regulation of Freight Forwarders in Nigeria, Kenya International Freight and Warehousing Association, the Walvis Bay Corridor Group as well as the China International Freight Forwarders Association.

With the luxurious Intercontinental Hotel venue only able to accommodate a maximum of 350 delegates, and the next African Regional Forwarders Conference not scheduled until 2014, agents interested in attending are encouraged to secure their delegate place now.
