The Women Vendors Exhibition and Forum 2014 (WVEF 2014) will take place September 16-17 in Kigali Rwanda in parallel with ITC's World Export Development Forum (WEDF). This year the event will feature two sectors; coffee and services.
WVEF connects strong women vendors to buyers and investors to establish relationships and generate business over time. This year so far, 400 women owned companies from 45 countries have added their profiles to the WVEF database in search of new business opportunities; 1,500 potential complementarities have already been identified. In the previous events in China 2011 and Mexico 2012, bilateral meetings between sellers and buyers led to the completion of more than 70 letters of intent to explore business opportunities of approximately $20 million.
We invite you to nominate businesswomen in your networks to apply to participate by completing a Women Vendor Application Form, and indicating that they are affiliated with your organization. The deadline for receipt of applications has been extended to July 31, 2014.
