Get ready for an electrifying announcement from Columbia University's African Community! Brace yourselves as we unveil the 20th Columbia Africa Conference, formerly known as the Africa Economic Forum! It's a thrilling student-led collaboration between Columbia Business School, Columbia School of International and Public Affairs, and Columbia Engineering, and it's happening in person on the dynamic days of Friday, November 3rd, and Saturday, November 4th, 2023.

Picture this: the heart of Manhattanville will be buzzing with excitement as we welcome you and our distinguished speakers to our shiny new campus. What's the buzzword? "Strengthening Our Ties." That's the theme we're diving into!

Hold onto your seats because it's not just another conference— on this weekend we'll bring together the brightest African minds. Think community-building, mind-bending discussions, and a deep exploration of two decades of nurturing the African spirit at Columbia.

Our lineup is nothing short of extraordinary! We're talking thought-provoking panels, interactive fireside chats, awe-inspiring keynote speakers, networking mixer, cultural exhibits, and the kind of nightlife events that only the Big Apple can deliver!

And guess what? Your ticket includes it all:

  • Networking Mixer
  • Thought Provoking Panels
  • Fireside Chats
  • Engaging Keynotes
  • Gallery Walk
  • African Researchers Symposium
  • Swag Bag
  • Small Business Showcase
  • Lunch and Refreshments
  • But that's not all—get ready to groove at our exclusive Afro-themed Ball in the city!

But here's the deal: tickets are in high demand, and they're non-refundable!
