Afreximbank Announces Creative African Nexus Weekend 2022


The African Export-Import Bank (Afreximbank) is excited to announce that registration is now open for the upcoming Creative Africa Nexus Weekend (CANEX WKND) 2022, taking place from 25 – 27th November 2022 in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire.

Registration to attend CANEX WKND, which will be held across multiple venues at the Sofitel Hotel Ivoire is free for all delegates. Anyone from Africa and the diaspora interested in being part of the rapidly expanding African creative and cultural industry can register now at

CANEX WKND 2022 will be a 3-day gathering of creatives from across Africa and the diaspora, leading up to the next Creative Africa Nexus (CANEX) Summit at IATF2023. This will be another important step in Afreximbank’s continued roll-out and implementation of its CANEX program, a multi-faceted intervention to support and develop Africa’s emerging creative sector.

CANEX WKND 2022 will feature creatives, investors, industry leaders, creative industry businesses, and government representatives, once again creating business-to-business and business-to-government networking and deal-making opportunities, as well as the chance to hear and learn from some of the leading voices from Africa and its diaspora in music, film, fashion, crafts, visual arts, literature, gaming, VR and more.

Building on the key successes of CANEX at IATF2021 which was held in Durban in November 2021, the upcoming CANEX WKND 2022 in Abidjan will further build bridges across Africa with a strong focus on connecting African creatives.

Among other things, participants will have the opportunity to exhibit fashion, art, and crafts in a dynamic marketplace; benefit from meeting services to connect with potential partners; participate in panel discussions and in-depth breakaway masterclasses; and leverage a range of other networking opportunities.

Limited CANEX WKND Market & Exhibition stand space is still available with stand offerings designed to meet the needs of smaller creative companies as well as premium brands and organizations.

Further announcements on registration and participation in CANEX WKND will be made in the near future. For further updates, follow us on:
