Premier international platform for business exchange Zimbabwe

The Zimbabwe International Trade Fair is one of the largest intra-regional trade fairs South of the Sahara. An annual exhibition which offers exposure to both trade and public visitors, the multi-sectoral, multi-national expo provides a convenient trade hub for the region. Its location in Bulawayo, the centre of Southern Africa, is at the crossroads of the regional trade and transportation routes.

The 57th edition of ZITF will run from 26-30 April 2016 under the theme, “Innovate-Integrate-Industrialise”. Building on last year’s focus which was on seizing opportunities to accelerate growth, the 2016 edition goes a step further to address the critical issues of innovation, industrialisation and regional integration. These are essential to increasing the global GDP contribution of Zimbabwe and the continent as a whole. We therefore extend an invitation to the local and international business community, both large corporate and small-to-medium enterprises to participate in ZITF 2016 as we focus on innovatively resuscitating and revitalising our industries and creating sustainable value-chains.

ZITF and the specialised exhibitions hosted annually at the Zimbabwe International Exhibition Centre provide ideal venues at which to meet the deal-makers and the new industrialists first-hand. For more information visit the website.
