Whether you’re looking for a product,
Meeting its makers,
Or negotiating the deal…

The Trade Hub is here to help you.

We’ll show you what’s new, interesting, and of value.  We’ll introduce you to the company behind the product.  We’ll help you understand the opportunity – and make the deal.  And we won’t miss any of the steps in between.


Our experienced staff has been on the ground in Africa for years, and knows it’s way around. Looking for recommendations or some new contacts? We can help match you up to producers and manufacturers – as well as bankers, transport companies, service providers, consultants and more – that meet your needs and specifications. Whether you’re looking to make a sample order or set up a factory, we can point you in the right direction. Start by taking a look at our directory of exporters.

Buyer trips

Thinking of making a sourcing trip to Africa, but not sure how to start planning your visit? The Trade Hub can help you make hotel bookings at the best rates available, find the most direct flight itinerary, arrange for ground transport and translation assistance – and of course, put you in touch with producers and manufacturers that meet your needs.

Trade Shows

Each year, the Trade Hub sponsors producers and manufacturers in all sectors to exhibit at trade shows around the world. Interested in African products, but not planning on making the trip this year? There just might be an Africa pavilion at a trade show near you. Take a look at our upcoming schedule of events and be on the lookout for our branded pavilions.

Other market events

In addition to trade shows, the Trade Hub sponsors a number of more targeted market events, including B2Bs and sector-specific conferences. Our staff also attends a number of industry conferences around the world. Take a look at our upcoming schedule of events.
