Your Pan-African event moved to Abidjan for the first time! TXF made its first visit to West Africa with a half day of roundtables in Abidjan. Given the resounding success, we decided to bring the format back with a bang for TXF Africa 2019. 

Tuesday 9th April: Pre-conference roundtables and ice-breaker drinks

Delegates joined us for two separate roundtables:

Power & Infrastructure Finance: Schneider Electric offices

Commodity Finance: Olam Ivory Coast offices

Following these there was ice-breaker drinks sponsored by EXX Africa, open to all guests of the conference.

Wednesday 10th April: Main conference and cocktail reception

Guests joined us from 8:15am at the Sofitel Abidjan Hotel Ivoire, Boulevard Hassan II, 08 Bp 01 Abidjan. The main conference was followed by a cocktail reception held by the stunning hotel pool.

Last year we were delighted to welcome an audience of 44% corporates, which included regional traders, producers, borrowers, exporters and developers.
