In collaboration with the Kenya Private Sector Alliance (KEPSA), this conference will assemble key stakeholders for a comprehensive two-day program.

Moreover, the event will commence with a day-long program at the Muthaiga Country Club and a VIP Reception on February 19, followed by a second day dedicated to site visits in Nairobi on February 20, 2024.

Participation in the conference is open to all corporate members of The Canada-Africa Chamber of Business, along with invited guests and sponsors in partnership with the Kenya Private Sector Alliance (KEPSA).

In addition, the conference will feature a diverse representation of sectors, including healthcare, infrastructure, energy, financing for Canada-Africa projects, and FinTech.
