ABOUT SOURCE AFRICA


Source Africa will take place for the third time in Cape Town next year. It is the most important annual pan-African textile, clothing and footwear trade event on the international calendar encouraging linkages between buyers, manufacturers and suppliers, investment into manufacturing capacity in Africa and accelerating job creation for many years to come.

Source Africa 2013 and 2014 demonstrated what can be achieved when USAID’s regional experts join forces with private enterprise, LTE – leaders in trade exhibitions, in South Africa to boost regional industry. The event was designed to show that African textile, apparel & footwear manufacturers can compete on price, quality and standards and it brought together manufacturers, suppliers and service providers in one major integrated event, enabling African and International buyers to examine a wide array of products and services in one efficient trip.


Director General of the South African Department of Trade and Industry, Lionel October, opened the event by highlighting the importance of collaboration with the US to strengthen the sector and discussing the significant role the industry plays in job creation. Consul General of the United States in Cape Town, Erica Barks-Ruggles, also addressed the opening plenary, emphasizing the commitment of the US government to the region’s industry through the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) and support for events like Source Africa.

Source Africa 2015 will include a two day trade exhibition, African country pavilions, international business seminars, an opening plenary session and cocktail receptions. Another important element will be the business buyer matchmaking programme. Buyers will have access to the exhibitor list prior to the show in order for them to plan and schedule meetings with exhibitors.

Source Africa will attract over 1600 decision makers who will have the opportunity to view an extensive range of products and services from more than 220 exhibitors.
