  • Another music and arts event?

    No, no¦ Afrikin goes beyond music and art to highlight the ingenuity, economic, and social opportunity of one of the world’s fastest-growing regions Africa. Talks and workshops will be presented by influencers in technology, education, international relations, and business, in an effort to connect you to industry leaders that represent the diaspora.

     

    We won’t just provide food for sustenance. We are creating an experience that will rival any food festival and wine tasting. We are curating the finest in African cuisines, topping off the experience with cooking demonstrations by celebrity chefs.

     

    Innovation is key, and this will be evident by the companies and products that will be present at our exhibitions and as vendors throughout Afrikin. We are talking trailblazers, up-and-comers of the diaspora who have identified gaps in the market, developed solutions, have a presence in the marketplace and are ready to present their ideas to investors to take them to the next level.

     

    But still, a musical and artistic experience will be had¦ And If you are reading this from the ends of the earth, our lineup will be so stellar that all you’ll care about is to be at Afrikin.
