African economies are carrying out major airport build and expansion projects in anticipation of ever-rising air passenger numbers. 7 out of 10 of the fastest-growing markets are represented by African countries and they are expected to achieve a compound growth rate of more than 7.2% per year, meaning their market will double in size each decade. Airports are primed as the gateway to African destinations, whilst playing a vital role in driving economic expansion and diversification.
With over 80 projects in the pipeline valued at US $45.3bn, Africa represents one of the most vivid and fastest growing continents in the infrastructure development space.
The Annual Modern Airports Africa Summit, taking place in Nairobi from 28 – 30 August 2019 offers a world class opportunity to access key project owners, understand the contract requirements and assess the most relevant projects showcasing the business opportunities available within the continent.
