The Africa Automotive Show will be hosted by the African Association of Automotive Manufacturers (AAAM) as part of the 3rd Intra-African Trade Fair in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire from November 21-27, 2023.
This pan-African trade initiative includes an exhibition, conference and match-making (including hosted buyers) aimed at facilitating trade deals and partnerships across the full automotive value-chain. As Africa’s premier meeting place for roleplayers with an interest in the automotive sector – The Africa Automotive Show will attract delegates from across the width and breadth of Africa and the rest of the globe as trade under the world’s largest single free-market trading bloc – the African Continental Free Trade Agreement, accelerates and boosts the development of automotive manufacturing, partnerships and logistics across Africa.
The IATF is an initiative of The African Export-Import Bank (Afreximbank), in collaboration with the African Union and AfCFTA Secretariat, to be hosted by the Government of the Republic of Côte d’Ivoire in Abidjan. IATF2023 will provide a unique and valuable platform for businesses to access an integrated African market of over 1.3 billion people with a GDP of over US$3.5 trillion created under the African Continental Free Trade Area.
It is projected that over 35 000 delegates and 1600 exhibitors from 75 countries will conclude business of around US$40bn.
