The Ugandan UK Convention, a Trade and Investment Forum has now become firmly established as an annual event in the UK.
The forum brings together experts, business leaders, professionals and representatives from prominent organisations based in Uganda, the UK and beyond. Delegates have access to up-to-date information on the vast potential for investment that Uganda offers to both the domestic and international community.

The convention participants will be able to:
Meet and network with African and UK professionals marketing goods for global markets
Market your services and products to delegates and visitors on the day
Meet business leaders to discuss the major developments, challenges and success stories
