International Wine Trade Festival VINAFRICA is the first International Wine Trade show in sub-Saharan Africa, with the main purpose of offering a platform where wine (and its by-product) producers from around the world meet to present and trade their products to a waiting audience of buyers / importers / wine merchants and growing consumers from West Africa.

It is a much needed, much anticipated and important trade show with the potential to become a major player and catalyst for the growth of the wine business in the entire African continent, where there is an estimated population of 1,2 billion with 300 million just in West Africa.

With the steady economic growth of the medium to high income bracket earners in sub-Saharan Africa (1 in 3 are medium income bracket earners in the region), the taste for an affluent life-style which includes “curated dining experiences” is on a surge. This has led to a high demand for wines in particular, in this region.

A four-day event packed with the following:

Thursday 9
- Exhibitors / Vineyards Activities
- The Akwaaba Welcome Experience - Prelude Event: an Entertainment filled Welcoming Reception Party. This will be held on the lawns of Labadi Beach Hotel and will spill on to the beach overlooking the ocean along the Gulf of Guinea with live band performances, gourmet flamed grilled burgers & wash them down with champagne, wines, liquors and cocktails.

Friday 10 - Trade & Exhibition Day

Saturday 11 - Wine 2 Wine Business Day: a full day of Trade & Exhibition plus various seminars and presentations by Customs & Excise, Food & Drug State Agencies across Ecowas, to unravel the intricacies of exporting goods into West Africa; the bureaucratic requirements, dealing with credit insurance, mode of payments; bank operations; Meet & Trade with potential buyers & importers; and Training programs for HORECA (Hotels, Restaurants & Clubs) staff. This event will take place at the World Trade Centre.

Sunday 12 - 3 Maestro 6-course Gala Dinner: a fun-filled Curated dining experience gala dinner with 3 renowned chefs.
