East African Humanitarian Conference

EAHS 2018 will offer a cost-effective opportunity for the Commercial Sector, Local, Regional and International NGO’s, UN Agencies, Governmental Departments and International Associations to meet and exchange information for the purpose of business development

Why Attend?

Initiating business with the International Aid Community can differ greatly compared to normal everyday business, with many Aid Agencies following their own procurement proceedings involving varying requirements for suppliers. The East African Humanitarian Summit will provide the private sector with the tools and information necessary to access the UN/ NGO procurement market, in an effective and efficient manner.
• Meet with those involved on the ground and in control of policy and procurement, • Showcase your latest products and technologies on offer through live demonstrations and face to face meetings with attending UN/ NGO representatives and Heads of Procurement. • Gain an overview of the UN/ NGO Procurement market, • Learn about the opportunities available within the aid and development market, through a combination of key note addresses from prominent speakers, combined with round-table Panel Discussions and one on one private meetings. • Enhance existing relationships whilst generating new leads and enquiries • Raise Brand awareness • Launch New Products • Engage in private procurement discussions with attending Procurement Managers and key influencers from the aid and development community, through pre-arranged one on one meetings
Or conferences offer a cost-effective opportunity for the Commercial Sector, Local, Regional and International NGO’s, UN Agencies, Governmental Departments and International Associations to meet and exchange information for the purpose of business development.
Bringing together latest news and features with an effective events program, we strive to help children, families, and communities throughout Africa, as the continent progresses towards economic, social and environmental sustainability.
Our Events model was created to provide business exhibitions that transcend the boundaries of the traditional conference model, focusing on personal interaction and forging business ties within emerging markets for the development of core infrastructure and the promotion of trade and investment
The Humanitarian summits offer personal interaction between the international private sector, governmental, non-governmental and administrative organisations. Utilizing a unique format that combines informed content with the opportunity for private consultation with senior decision makers, the company has forged close ties with international governments, leading public bodies, multilateral institutions, non-governmental organisations and the global business community to provide a wide range of business opportunities for those companies keen to do business at the highest level.
We host and organizes a series of existing programs throughout Africa incorporating International Governments and the Aid & Development Community throughout the region. All “programs” are built on the simple principle of attracting the global business and financial community to invest and partner with the concerned authority. The success of these programs is based on experience and performance: • Personal contact with business leaders, investors and the chief executives of the world’s leading multinationals • High-level political relations with ministers and officials across the Middle East and Africa • Considerable experience in organizing regular investment, meetings based summits around the world
