Africa Trade and Investment Global Summit (ATIGS)
The Africa Trade and Investment Global Summit (ATIGS): Conference + Trade Show is a unique high-level, prestigious, biennial business platform designed specifically to promote and facilitate international trade and foreign direct investment in Africa. 

The event brings together high-level government officials, global investors, companies from all over the world, trade promotional organizations (TPOs) and investment promotion agencies (IPAs) from various African countries all under one roof. ATIGS focuses on promoting strategic networking and facilitating transactions between global investors, companies, government officers, TPOs and IPAs by providing an ultimate business platform ideal for conducting G2B, G2G and B2B meetings.  

ATIGS provide an unparalleled access for global investors and companies to explore the enormous trade and investment opportunities in Africa enhanced through a worthwhile learning experience. The business platform enables companies that are looking to establish or expand operations in Africa to connect directly with trade promotional organizations (TPOs) and investment promotion agencies (IPAs) from various African nations all under one roof. 

ATIGS 2018's theme is “Driving Trade, Unleashing Investment and Enhancing Economic Development”. The theme of ATIGS is aligned with two of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): (SDG 17 & SDG 8). 

The summit will also highlight The Forum for Africa Economic Development (TFAFED), which is an integral part of the Summit. It will bring together business executives and high-level government officials to feature in a series of dialogues that will focus on promoting job-creating business investment for sustainable development in Africa. 

ATIGS 2018 will also spotlight several forums including US-Africa Manufacturing Leaders Forum.
