The 6th edition of the United Africa Trade Fair, known as Salon Afrique Unie (SAU), kicked off here on Thursday, and will continue until Saturday.

This event showcases African fashion and also functions as an economic platform with the goal of making contributions to Africa’s development.

Featuring 150 exhibitors spread across 4,250 square meters of exhibition space and sales areas, the SAU promises a rich program, including conferences, masterclasses, fashion shows and various engaging activities. The primary objective is to spotlight the achievements of those presenting innovative and sustainable solutions.

The 2023 edition, now being held in Cotonou, signifies a historic moment in the event’s evolution as it takes place in Africa for the first time, and it is expected to attract more than 30,000 visitors.
