AviaDev in detail

 AviaDev Africa is the only dedicated air service development event for Africa, taking place on the African continent in 2017.

The event is focused on building air connectivity between African nations, and also connecting Africa to the World. We facilitate this process via pre-arranged meetings, interactive workshops, an exhibition and networking events. 

The event takes place alongside AHIF (Africa Hotel Investment Forum), offering the opportunity for the aviation and hospitality industries to build a co-ordinated approach to tourism development on the continent
