About The AVCA Conference

The annual AVCA Conference is the largest private equity gathering globally, attracting investors who collectively manage over US$1.5tn in assets. Over the past 14 years, the AVCA conference has become the most important forum for promoting, developing, and stimulating private investment in Africa. The conference continues to be a rallying beacon, shedding light on the vast opportunities available to global investors, and guiding the industry with informative research and thought leadership.

Starting in 2003 in Cameroon, AVCA has held conferences in Botswana, Egypt, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Morocco, Nigeria, Senegal, South Africa, and Tunisia with the goal of exposing investors to the diverse prospective investment markets across the continent.

The 14th Annual AVCA Conference returned to francophone Africa for the first time in ten years.

Côte d’Ivoire is a prime destination for foreign direct investment due to its strong GDP growth, stable political environment, excellent infrastructure, and emergence as the regional hub for Francophone West Africa. Our data shows that consumer staples, industrials, healthcare, and financials are the most attractive sectors for private equity investment in Côte d'Ivoire.

AVCA continues to showcase the fastest growing countries in the world to investors. To find out about our past conferences, please click here.
