Zimbabwe Investment Tour 2019
Our inaugural flagship event, #ZIT2019: Zimbabwe Investment Tour 2019, is a carefully curated insight mission and transactional opportunity for discerning investors who view Africa as the next frontier for high-growth investment opportunities.
#ZIT2019 is a 3-stage event which will kick off in Johannesburg, South Africa on Tuesday, September 3rd 2019. Then, following a pleasure stop at the magnificent Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe the tour will conclude in the country's capital city, Harare, on Tuesday, September 10th 2019.
#ZIT2019 will attract serious regional and international investors who have a keen interest in sourcing actionable insight, making important high-level connections and doing deals with pre-vetted investment-ready companies, asset managers, fund managers and government authorities in the “New Zimbabwe”.
Throughout this two-day investment tour our team will employ a number of engaging devices to actively facilitate meaningful interactions between visiting investors and Zimbabwean entrepreneurs, government policymakers, asset managers and investment professionals.
