Supply Chain Business Forum and Exhibition set for July

Industry and academia will come together to share insights, trends and perspectives during CARISCA’s inaugural Business Forum and Exhibition set for July 29-30 in Accra, Ghana. The goal is to enhance supply chain efficiency, sustainability and competitiveness across Africa.

The event will feature two days of presentations and panel discussions on the theme “Navigating the Future of Supply Chains in Africa.” The schedule also will provide plenty of time for networking and exploring the exhibition space, where leading businesses and entrepreneurs will showcase their products and services.

Day One will focus on the agriculture sector. Starbucks Vice President Ruby Amegah will kick off the day with a keynote message on “The Odyssey of Coffee and Cocoa Beans — From African Soil to Global Cup.”

She will address both the challenges and opportunities presented by Africa’s dynamic supply chain landscape. A panel discussion will follow on supply chain traceability in the cocoa and coffee sectors.

The first day also will include a presentation on the Ghana Logistics Managers Index, a tool CARISCA created to support decision-makers and improve businesses and livelihoods in Africa. Since its inception in 2022, the quarterly index has proved to be a predictive indicator of the overall Ghanaian economy.

Day Two will focus on the health care sector. Speakers and panelists for those sessions are still being confirmed and will be announced soon.

Registration for the event is free. Simply go to cariscabusinessforum.com to sign up.

Businesses that would like to exhibit at the event or become a sponsor should also visit cariscabusinessforum.com or contact client relations manager Evans Ankomah Junior at ankomahjnr@carisca.knust.edu.gh.

“We hope to discover answers to two questions during the Business Forum,” says CARISCA Executive Director Dale Rogers. “What are the best supply chain practices throughout the African continent?  And what support does African business need from leading-edge university research?”

We invite you to join us at the World Trade Center in Accra, Ghana, July 29-30 to participate in the conversation.
