The Summit’s Partnership Expo is a key event that allows U.S. civil society groups, corporations, and government agencies to highlight the work they do in Africa and connect with Mandela Washington Fellows.

As an exhibitor at the Partnership Expo, participating organizations will have the opportunity to…

  • Connect with Africa’s up-and-coming entrepreneurs, community leaders, and public managers
  • Engage with 700 Mandela Washington Fellows recruited from all 49 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa
  • Showcase your organization’s work on the continent and discuss opportunities to expand your network

Participation as an exhibitor is free of charge. Please note that space is limited to approximately 100 organizations and agencies; those selected to exhibit will receive a confirmation email from IREX. Due to space constraints, Fellowship Alumni and 2020 Fellows are not eligible to apply to be exhibitors at the Expo.

Corporate sponsorship opportunities at the Summit are also available. If you are interested in learning more about how your organization can become a sponsor, please indicate this on your registration form or contact Chris McKeown at cmckeown@irex.org for more information.
