The Africa Makeup & Beauty Fair (AMB Fair) is the rebranding and expansion of Makeup Ghana Connects, a Ghanaian beauty industry event held March 2016, into an African event. The four-day event is organized by Makeup Ghana and scheduled for 14th – 17th April, 2017 to coincide with Ghana’s 60th Independence anniversary festivities. It will be held at the Providence Event Centre, adjacent the Trade Fair Centre, Accra. Scheduled activities include exhibitions & discount sales, workshops & seminars, training, runway shows, live demos.
Makeup Ghana, the event organizer is a social enterprise creating a unifying platform for stakeholders in the fast-growing beauty industry in Ghana. Their goal is to bring together makeup professionals, makeup brands, beauty retailers and fashion & beauty content creators in Ghana, to propel the industry forward. In 2016, they held three major events towards achieving this goal. Makeup Ghana Connects, a 2-day exhibition and training event held in March 2016, followed by a Stakeholders Forum. The maiden edition of the Ghana Makeup Awards in August 2016, was also held to reward hardworking makeup artists and brands and propel the industry towards aiming for excellence.
On the reason for the Africa Makeup & Beauty Fair, Makeup Ghana Founder, Rebecca Donkor said:
“We consulted the industry after Makeup Ghana Connects and the consensus was towards a continent-wide event. The goal of the Africa Makeup & Beauty Fair is therefore to connect our makeup and beauty industry to African and global vendors and service providers, while exposing our local industry to new customers and partners. We invite everyone to spend part of their independence holiday exploring AMB Fair 2017. “
