An Impact that Matters

We always strive to make an impact that matters by using the organisation of events in Africa to benefit the local economy, to involve wherever possible indigenous suppliers and using locally produced sustainable materials. This characterizes who we are and gives us our organisational purpose: serving our clients, motivating our people and contributing to society.

We believe that it’s only when we act responsibly in all the different aspects that we merit the respect of the business and broader community.

Responsible operations and procedure

Respecting our environment

It’s our aim, where possible, to eliminate non-recyclable products from our events, through our new meeting app we will limit printing catalogues, by providing tactile screens we will not use roller banners, our conference giveaways such as delegate bags and badges will be made from recyclable or locally produced materials.

Safety

With the recent developments of COVID-19, we’re committed to following the measures imposed by the World Health Organisation and that of the country where we are working. We will make sure that social distancing is respected, complimentary masks are available and hand gel will be able at designated points at the events venues.

Local health authorities will have a constant presence at our events including a fully operational infirmary with doctors and nurses, as well as ambulances on stand by for any emergency medical evacuations.

Security

Your security is our priority. At AME Trade events we work with the relevant government authorities to make sure that the local security entities such as the police and the army have an active presence on site. We also produce an emergency evacuation plan with muster points in case of any unforeseen emergency to guarantee your safety.

Responsible projects of partners, renewable energy content

We actively encourage the use of renewable energy in our conference programmes with sessions dedicated to wind, solar, geothermal, biomass, and hydropower. See below some of our renewable energy content at our latest conferences.

Our contribution to the African economy

$3,157,500 is our company contribution in 2019 to economies in Africa.

$2,030,000 Direct economic impacts.

It is our goal to source all products, services and personnel required to organise our events directly from the country where we are working. We estimate that in 2019, AME Trade Ltd contributed directly through our events $2,030,000 to economies in Africa.

Products include: conference giveaways, printed materials, decoration and gifts.

Services include: catering, transport, communication agencies, audio-visual equipment, stand rental, venue rental and freight.

Staff include: labourers, press, interpreters, rapporteurs, MC’s, hostesses, photographers and cameramen.

$1,125,000 Indirect economic impacts.

A regional or international delegate will have a multiplier effect on local economies by contributing financially via our conferences to hotels, restaurants, transport companies, recreational and tourism sites. Based on an estimated figure of an overseas delegate spending $1500 USD per event on the above, we estimate indirect benefits from our events in 2019 was $1,125,000.

Promoting African arts and culture

Africa is the cradle of mankind and a mosaic of myriad cultures, languages and traditions. To effectively work in a country, it is essential to understand the values and beliefs of where you are working in order to succeed.

At our events, we work directly with local artisans to produce delegate bags and conference gifts. We also always make sure that we feature the best musicians and aspiring artists to entertain and educate our conference attendees. Performers we have been honoured to host include: Pape et Cheikh, Toumani Diabate, Bembeya Jazz, Habib Koité, Soul Bangs and a wide variety of local troupes and dance acts.
