The fifth edition of Agritech Expo Zambia will take place from 12 – 14 April 2018 at the GART Research Centre in Chisamba. The event is expected to bring more than 22 000 visitors, over 270 local and international exhibitors with 3500 VIP and large scale farmers and 150 members of the press. This is a good opportunity to find business partners and learn more about the developments of different business sectors in Zambia.
Finnpartnership, Business Finland and the Embassy of Finland in Lusaka warmly welcome Finnish companies to join us at our fair stand at the Expo. Finnish companies can use this fair stand as a small meet-up and presentation space free-of-charge. In addition, b2b meetings can be organized according to the companies’ wishes.
You can learn more about Agritech Expo on the Expo’s official website.
Before the expo, on 11.4.2018, there will be a half-day seminar Doing Business with Finland (DBF) in Lusaka. The purpose of this seminar is to create new business opportunities between Finnish and Zambian companies. Our local partner, Zambia Development Agency, has invited Zambian companies to the seminar. After networking, the seminar will continue with its Export part, which is aimed at Zambian coffee and tea producers.
Sign up to the Agritech Expo and DBF seminar by April 2 by sending an e-mail to Finnpartnership’s Kaisa Arkkila, firstname.lastname@example.org. Participants will arrange their trip and visas themselves. The trip can be part of a broader project aimed at Zambia, in which case you can apply for Finnpartnership’s Business Partnership Support. The next Application workshop will be organized on 22.3.2018 – read more here.
Besides the DBF seminar in Zambia, seminars are also being organized in Botswana on 17.4.2018 and in Namibia on 19.4.2018. Finnish companies are warmly welcome to join these seminars as well.
If you cannot attend the seminar but wish to be introduced to Zambian companies, you can send two Powerpoint slides to Finnpartnership. We will present your company at the seminar and open the discussions with interested local companies. The slides should include:
1) Picture of the product or an illustrative picture of the service and a short introduction.
2) Name of the company and contact information (a webpage is not enough)
3) A definition of what kind of business partner the company/organization is looking for.
Send the slides (in English) by 2.4.2018 to Kaisa Arkkila, email@example.com, tel. +358 40 634 2075. You can also bring printed slides to our office, Finnpartnership c/o Finnfund, Uudenmaankatu 16 B, 00121, Helsinki.
