Why are the Debates different?
This event builds on the success of our networking meetings but it will be different to other BCA events in scope and scale. There will be a lively debate and many opportunities to connect with businesses with African interests.
We are different. We are not an event company. We work exclusively for the benefit of our membership. Our business is to make the introductions you need to do business in Africa. It’s everything we do.
We know Africa. We have 33 in-country directors covering 36 African nations. You gain access to a network 60 years in the making.
Guidance & Support. We can offer guidance and connections for your business to operate more effectively on the continent. Our 400 member companies benefit – come to talk them.
Who will you meet?
Network with an influential delegate group including BCA members and partners plus potential investors and decision makers in the fields of finance, law, technology and energy.
Special rates are available for BCA partners – group bookings benefit from discounts. Book a table at our gala dinner and entertain your clients!
