Our business to business events provide vital practical information for companies looking to diversify and realign their business strategies to keep up with fast-moving global trends. Through sector specific and country focused events, we are now one of the leading providers of strategic business intelligence for the African, Middle Eastern and South American regions. Our services include bespoke conferences, trade exhibitions, training workshops and networking functions.
What sets us apart?
Our knowledge and experience of organising events in developing countries is second to none. We possess more than 16 years of working experience in over 30 African, Middle Eastern and South American countries, and understand and respect the individual needs of our partners in each one. We are in a unique position to boost our clients’ corporate image in new markets, as well as attract notable keynote speakers.
Most of our events are organised in association with government ministries and other institutional partners, meaning we can guarantee the participation of high-level delegations. We have also developed strong relationships with important private sector players who return to support our events year after year, ensuring multi-layered networking opportunities. We are well attuned to relevant local and international media for the effective promotion of our events.

AME Trade supports the Ebola Crisis Fund
The Ebola Crisis Fund seeks to raise US $1,000,000 over the next three months as an immediate response to stopping the spread of the deadly Ebola virus. As donations are received, the Fund will fast-track support to vetted organisations in Sierra Leone, Liberia, Guinea and Nigeria. Funding will also be provided to other organisations in surrounding countries to proactively address the Ebola crisis. Organisations will be measured against agreed upon benchmarks and funding will be overseen by in-country personnel, ensuring accountability.
What sets us apart from our competitors?
AME Trade events gather a varied audience from both the international and domestic private and public sectors, from large-scale companies to SMEs. This results in an all-encompassing debate and multi-layered networking opportunities.
Our conference programmes draw from the knowledge and experience of our expert producers, creating an exciting mixture of themes which are relevant to both the international and local markets. We carefully vet our speakers to avoid banal corporate presentations.
We have organised the first international events in some of our countries of operation. This includes the first ever country focused mining, energy and oil & gas events in Liberia, Mauritania, Mozambique, Republic of Congo, Senegal, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia.
International quality, wherever we are
We organise many of our events in countries which present logistical challenges. Our aim is to ensure that we always achieve international quality service standards. We facilitate your business trip before, during and after the event.
We firmly believe that the event is not over on the last day! We provide our clients with a post-show report, to help them follow up their business leads and evaluation beyond the dates of the event.
Local content and empathy
We always use local suppliers and services where possible. At the same time our events are not restricted to the conference venue. We believe it is important to organise social events, technical and touristic excursions, allowing our clients to gain a better understanding of the cultural complexities of the countries they visit.
Our events are promoted internationally, regionally and locally on the internet, printed press, radio and television. We have an extensive network of media partners and guarantee that you will meet the relevant audience to your business.
We have local offices in many of our countries of operation, resulting in the expansion and improvement of our in-country services and network.
