In the traditional Chamber of Commerce set-up, we were used to attending networking events in person. Africa Business Connect changes these networking opportunities by utilising the latest technologies and thereby removing physical borders or boundaries. You can attend our events from the comfort of your office chair. Events, such as e-Talks and Webinars are the primary mediums to host Africa Business Connect events (functions and education sessions). As an Africa Business Connect subscriber, you can also request us to include topics of interest for future events. Complete this short form
Request an Africa Business Connect Event
It is of course up to our subscriber community to decide on the relevance of the requested topic. We filter all requests and our subscribers will receive an e-mail poll to determine interest.
Remember: The perceived value of any Chamber membership is always directly proportional to the level of participation by the member. In other words the more you are involved, and participate in events, functions, education, talks and presentations, the greater will be the value you gain.
If all we do is promote Africa Business Connect events, we will fail. We also promote YOUR events. In addition to publishing the normal events we’re all used to, such as Trade Shows, Expo’s, Conferences and Seminars, (this can be done from your Subscriber Information Centre) Africa Business Connect provides Subscribers with the ability to Sponsor and / or Host an event on the Africa Business Connect platform. These events take the form of a Webinar or e-Talk.

ABCONN will manage and promote the event on your behalf and events should ideally be focused on topics of interest to our Subscribers. You decide which Subscriber and Business Categories should be invited. We CANNOT accommodate PAID FOR events at this moment, but those will be coming soon . . .Remember: Hosting or Sponsoring an e-Talk or Webinar on the ABCONN platform is subject to approval.
