About the

Africa Gem Exhibition & Conference

About The Conference

The Africa Gem Exhibition and Conference (AGEC) aims to showcase the wealth of gemstones occurrence in Africa. Countries along with their miners and traders will get a platform to show case their gemstones in the exhibition pavilion which will create a marketplace for local, regional and international buyers to source directly from country of origin.

In line with the theme of the event to promote responsible sourcing of gemstones from Africa, this will be an opportunity for miners to network with the players in the supply chain and learn the dynamics of the trade. It is also expected that through this interaction, the miners will start to comprehend the benefits and opportunities in value addition of their gemstones.
