TROPICS MEDIA (Johannesburg, June 22, 2020) — In the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic and the forced cancellation of mass gatherings the TROPICS BUSINESS SUMMIT (TBS) will be presented in a new and virtual format this year, with the first-ever multilingual TROPICS BUSINESS SUMMIT — Virtual Experience 2020 due on October 14 to 17. Given the current circumstances and the importance placed on the health and safety of our community, this year’s business summit will be exclusively held on the web.
The 4th edition of the TROPICS BUSINESS SUMMIT will be held this year from October 14 to 17, 2020 under the theme: “Towards a Sustainable Economy: Innovation and Inter-Connectivity for Social Development.” The summit is one of the most important multilingual business meetings dedicated to investment opportunities in Africa. Nearly 350 participants gathered to attend the last three consecutive editions that took place in South Africa, with no less than 32 African, European, American, and Asian nations represented.
Since 2017, the TROPICS BUSINESS SUMMIT aims to create a framework for exchanges between Investors and Start-ups from all business sectors in order to consolidate synergies, facilitate access to funding opportunities, and to high-potential Startups in Africa, for others.
“As organizers of the TROPICS BUSINESS SUMMIT, which is used to welcoming participants from four continents, we will make sure to take full advantage of the virtual meetings during the upcoming TROPICS BUSINESS SUMMIT — Virtual Experience 2020. By offering exceptional learning opportunities, facilitating collaboration between Entrepreneurs, and of course, reserving considerable periods of time for pre-booked networking exchanges between Investors and Startups, we will make sure that our 500,000+ potential online participants, this year, the benefit of all aspects of the TROPICS BUSINESS SUMMIT from the comfort of their homes or offices,” said Ms. Vénicia Guinot, President, and Founder.
The new digital format of the event will offer all the innovative content TROPICS BUSINESS SUMMIT is known for while allowing people to connect from all over the world and interact in English, French and Portuguese languages.
“Given the current environment, it was the right decision to make for what is now a very large and multicultural audience of business and investment industry leaders who are working from home,” said Venicia Guinot. “We wanted to carry on the spirit of the original in-person 4-day long event by bringing together the top keynote speakers, experts, investors, and champion startuppers as well as engaging content creators from all races to create an impactful experience. Now, we can connect with a wider audience of 500,000+ connected African Facebook users worldwide who couldn’t initially make the trip to South Africa, and our presenters can still share their insights in their preferred languages and still close deals at the end of the day.”
This year, the TROPICS BUSINESS SUMMIT will feature 100+ sessions and top-caliber Corporates from across the African continent and the world. They will take part in the 4th edition, representing a broad range of sectors, including financial services, agri-business, healthcare, power, transport, mining, construction, chemicals, leisure, telecoms, food, retail, arts and culture, tourism, communications, marketing, beauty, fashion, etc.
The TROPICS BUSINESS SUMMIT — Virtual Experience 2020 will come ahead of the anticipated launch of the AfCFTA — African Continental Free-Trade Area in Accra which will is set to boost Intra-African trade and Pan-African economies at large amidst the delay caused by the Covid-19 spread.
