Read the report on Indaba & Africa Accelerating 2018 with links to photos and presentations

 

Indaba & Africa Accelerating 2018 this past October 23-25 in Toronto was an overwhelming success; featuring four events over three days and culminating in our gala Indaba Evening with a musical tribute to Nelson Mandela by Lorraine Klaasen and a keynote address by Steve Letwin, CEO, IAMGOLD Corporation. 

 

The seminars featured expert keynote speakers, presenters and panelists and the lively discussions with engaged audiences testified to the strong interest in business opportunities in Africa for Canadians.  Our four programs included:

  • Investing in Africa Today
  • Power Infrastructure in Africa
  • Innovation & Digital Opportunities in Mining
  • Indaba Evening

A big thank you to all of our sponsors, partners, presenters, panelists, exhibitors, attendees, and volunteers on making the week the biggest African business event in Canada.
