Sahara is rescheduled to 2021

The 33rd edition of Sahara planned to run from the 13th – 16th September 2020 in Cairo, Egypt will be rescheduled to 2021.

The current impact of COVID-19 has presented many challenges that prevent people from coming together in person. But we strongly believe in the importance of trade fairs and their ability to help rebuild societies and connect industries, once the world recovers from this crisis.

We have been working behind the scenes to find the most suitable alternative dates to organise the show this year. Yet after careful consideration and close consultation with our stakeholders, exhibitors and partners in the industry, we have decided that it would be best to move the show to its usual calendar date of September 2021, when international travel restrictions are improved to ensure the participation of a larger and wider range of international countries.

Sahara is committed to bringing people together to conduct business deals and support the recovery of the agriculture business. As such, we will be offering a variety of digital opportunities to help our community stay informed, engaged and connected beyond the four-day event.

 We look forward to welcoming you back next year.

Placing Your Safety at the Heart of our Event

Sahara will be organized in accordance with Informa’s AllSecure health and safety standards. As the world’s leading events organizer, Informa has developed a detailed set of enhanced measures to provide the highest levels of hygiene and safety at its events, providing everyone with reassurance and confidence they are participating in a safe and controlled environment.
