EXHIBITOR INFORMATION

Africa Endeavor has grown from an annual command exercise into an information sharing and communications summit which now includes participation from industry exhibitors. Attendees at this event are able to meet face to face with solutions providers and discuss firsthand the challenges they face, and opportunities to building future relationships.

Exhibitors will display their products and services and offer demonstrations throughout the Symposium on Tuesday and Wednesday. There will also be time for vendor interactions with the attendees during the Meet & Greet on Monday so please plan travel accordingly.

Exhibitors will get the chance to introduce their solutions to attendees, as well as network with the participants throughout week, and should be prepared to address how they can meet current capability gaps. The African partner nations are looking to be educated on your solutions. Brush up on the current environment on the continent, understand their processes/problems, and explain how your solution meets those needs.

ELECTRICITY

Zambia has three associated plug types; types C, D and G. Plug type C has two round pins, type D has three round pins in a triangular pattern, and plug type G has two flat parallel pins and a grounding pin. Zambia operates on a 230V supply voltage and 50Hz. You can use your electric appliances in Zambia if the standard voltage in your country is between 220 – 240 V (UK, Europe, Australia, and most of Asia and Africa). If the standard voltage in your country is in the range of 100 V – 127 V (US, Canada, and most South American countries), you need a voltage converter.

TRAVEL

Harry Mwanga Nkumbula Airport is the closest airport to the event venue- about 7 miles.

DOING BUSINESS

Familiarize yourself with the country’s embassy Office of Defense Cooperation and AFRICOM’s FMS program. The U.S. Department of Defense’s Foreign Military Sales (FMS) program facilitates sales of U.S. arms, defense equipment, defense services, and military training to foreign governments. These are the major avenues from which these nations can acquire new technologies. Exhibitors are welcome to collect contact information of the participants, but be mindful they do not have purchasing power. They will work via their embassy to procure equipment.

Attendees will expect companies to address how they can meet current capability gaps, they are looking to be educated on your solutions. Brush up on the current environment on the continent, understand their processes/problems, and explain how your solution meets those needs.
