Inside VIV Africa 2024

Project Manager Natalie Taylor provides insights into the event.

VIV Africa 2024 is scheduled for October 2-3, 2024, in Kigali, Rwanda, with a Leadership Conference on October 1st

2024 marks an exciting milestone from what was previously known as Poultry Africa. By expanding its scope to include dairy and agriculture, it is addressing the broader needs of the animal protein industry and welcoming those involved in Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) and arable farming. Attendees can expect a more comprehensive event with a wider range of exhibitors, more diverse content and new opportunities for networking and learning. This year’s event will feature not only the latest advancements in poultry but also innovations in dairy and agricultural sectors, providing a holistic view of the industry.

"Africa is a new market to many exhibitors, and they see its growth potential. Our aim has been to facilitate their entry into the market and connect them with industry leaders and clients across the region. The proven track record of previous editions, combined with the expansion of the show to include dairy and agriculture, has made VIV Africa an attractive opportunity," Taylor says. "The VIV quality, network, and marketing have been key factors in driving this overwhelming response."

"The program is being developed with our local and international stakeholders to select top topics that address current business challenges farmers face in Africa. While the main focus will remain on poultry, we will also introduce specific agriculture and dairy content to the program. Break-out sessions will ensure there is always relevant content for each sector. More details will be released closer to the event, so it's important to keep an eye on our newsletters and updates on the website."

"The animal protein industry in Africa is forecasted to witness significant growth, driven by increasing demand for quality protein sources. VIV Africa plays a crucial role by providing a platform for knowledge exchange, innovation, and industry networking. By bringing together key stakeholders and industry leaders, VIV Africa facilitates the adoption of best practices and the introduction of new technologies essential for sustainable development."

"Planning your visit in advance will help you make the most of the two-day event and ensure you don’t miss any key sessions or networking opportunities. Pre-registering now online will save you time onsite and ensure you receive all communications about the event. Be sure to reserve a ticket for the Leadership Conference, as there are limited tickets available. On our website, you can view the exhibitor list and technical seminars to plan your experience."

"Even if you couldn’t secure an exhibitor slot, we encourage you to visit the show in Kigali. It’s an excellent opportunity to network, attend workshops, and gain insights from industry leaders. Your presence will still be highly valuable, and our team will facilitate ways to engage with other professionals and industry leaders."

"There are many sessions and special events during VIV Africa 2024, so it’s hard to choose just one! We will host a special networking cocktail with local talent on the first night of the event to connect exhibitors directly with industry leaders and peers. Additionally, there will be technical best practices sessions and in-depth workshops hosted by our partners in the new pavilions. Visitors can look forward to a memorable business experience."

"As VIV Africa 2024 approaches, I’d like to emphasize the incredible opportunities Africa presents for the agrifood industry. This event is not just about showcasing products but also about building connections, sharing knowledge, and enabling innovation. We are excited to welcome you to Kigali, where together, we can contribute to the sustainable growth and development of the industry in Africa and beyond."
