AFRICA SPORTS EXPO is also a program of fun and participative activities for all ages whose objective is to popularize the practice of sport. The thousands of visitors expected will be able to learn new disciplines from experienced coaches and discover new trends in vogue internationally.
The practice of sports is gaining increasing popularity in Africa. Often used by governments as a primary diplomatic tool or to ensure national cohesion, sports are also an endless source of champions while serving social and eco- nomic development purposes. This has of course, caught the attention of Western and other stakeholders, who now see Africa as a very promising and unrivaled market in the field of sports. Among them are major construction industry players, event organizers, equipment manufacturers, sports outlets, investment funds and more.
What better way of supporting this dynamism than by gathering all of these major sports players and stakeholders into one annual event right here on the African continent. Morocco and its economic powerhouse Casablanca were hence a perfect choice to host the AFRICA SPORTS EXPO from March 26-29, 2020!. As a real multisport platform, this convention will be hosting, over an area spanning more than 20,000 square meters (215,000 square feet), 180 exhibitors and 100 experts from 25 different countries as well as a number of international public figures. During this four-day period, AFRICA SPORTS EXPO 2020, which this year will be honoring Senegal as its guest country, will allow numerous professionals from around the world to showcase their knowledge, meet with clients and prospective partners and lead discussions on the future of the industry. The greater public, on the other hand, will have a chance to discover current and future sports trends and to try out new types of sports through various fun and interactive activities for guests of all ages, all while enjoying endless shopping opportunities.
We would like to welcome and thank all of our guests at this year’s AFRICA SPORTS EXPO, and look forward to seeing you all in Casablanca from March 26-29, 2020!
