The SMME Opportunities Expo & Conference is a three-day exhibition and trade exchange event, attracting more than 3,600 attendees annually. Innovative Entrepreneurs from all over South Africa and other African states come together to take in everything this exhibition and trade exchange event has to offer - from informative sessions, high-powered speakers and networking opportunities to essential business tools for the emerging and established entrepreneurs. The 2014 edition offers trading SMMEs, Exhibitors and Sponsors a fantastic opportunity to showcase their latest products and solutions; and to foster business partnerships while creating the perfect platform for industry dialogue, business skills enhancement and effective networking opportunities for the entrepreneurs, procurement managers, ED practitioners, academic experts and decision-makers from the public and private sectors.

The African Entrepreneurs Congress (AFRENCO) recognizes the importance of small businesses to the economic growth and stability on the African continent, and over twelve million people in South Africa alone rely directly on the small business sector for their livelihood, which employs almost 60% of the employable population in our country today. By hosting the SMME Opportunities Expo & Conference, AFRENCO enables government agencies, development funders, corporate institutions and private investors to interact with leaders of the country's largest black-owned or empowered businesses. This exhibition and trade exchange event is also viewed as an ideal platform to source right suppliers that will assist big business and government in meeting their BEE skills development and procurement requirements. AFRENCO is hosting the next SMME Opportunities Expo & Conference from the 14 - 16 OCTOBER 2014 at Orlando Communal Hall in Soweto, starting at 09:00 and ending at 17:00 daily.
