The Venue
Conveniently located in central London within easy walking distance of Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden, and the South Bank, RSA House was designed by Robert Adam in the early 1770s, and is the historic home of the Royal Society of Arts. A famous centre for Enlightenment thinking, the building has been the intellectual and social home of some of the greatest thinkers and social activists of the past 200 years. Today it is also recognised as one of the most exclusive and sought after locations for executive meetings in London.

London – access to international funds
The world’s leading global financial centre, home to a large number of internationally significant banks, businesses, and stock exchanges, and barometer for international investor appetite in Africa’s growth industries.

London is an ideal destination which provides African industries access to a large international audience as well as the opportunity to capitalise on the city’s financial expertise.
