About the trade show

The aim of the Expo is to showcase Africa’s honey industry by creating awareness on market opportunities, business opportunities and demonstrating the relationship between beekeeping and other industries. Over 2000 delegates, exhibitors of bee products and
technologies, exporters, importers, researchers, policy makers, honey trade support networks (private, public, NGOs), development partners, international media, and other stakeholders are expected to participate in the event.  Participants will come from Uganda, Kenya, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Rwanda, Ghana, Mozambique, Malawi, Egypt, Zambia, Burundi, South Africa, Cameroon, Sudan, Somalia, Nigeria, DR Congo, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Angola, Middle East, Europe, USA and other parts of the world.

Why ApiExpo Africa 2012 in Ethiopia?

Following presentation of a formal bid for Ethiopia to host the 3rd ApiExpo Africa in Addis Ababa by Hon. Tefera Derbew, Minister of Agriculture of the Federal Republic of Ethiopia, on behalf of EAB, Ethiopia was given a chance to host this mammoth business event. 

Ethiopia was accorded the rights to host the event, because of many reasons which include the following:

·  Ethiopia is the leading producer of honey and beeswax in Africa (honey: 43,000MT/pa). 

·  Globally, Ethiopia is the 4th largest producer of beeswax and the 10th largest producer of honey

·   Commercial beekeeping has increased rapidly over the past few years and many households involved have increased their incomes hence reduced poverty significantly.  In the 5-year Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP), government has put great emphasis for the development of this sector.

·   Ethiopia has strong historical links with traditional beekeeping practices, which in turn provide visual demonstration for eco-tourism in the country.

·   Ethiopia currently exports honey and beeswax to Europe (the most important honey market in the world) and Middle East.  Ethiopia is one of only 5 African countries eligible to export honey to the EU market; the others being Uganda, Tanzania, Zambia and Cameroon.
