I would like to personally invite you to the 2018 UK-Uganda Trade and Investment Convention (UCUK), which will take place on the 15th of September at the Troxy Arena-London, under the main theme “Driving Trade, Unleashing Investment and Enhancing Economic Development: The Gateway to Ugandan Markets”.  The UK Uganda Trade and Investment Convention (UCUK) is a prestigious annual business conference and exhibition designed specifically:

  • To promote and facilitate bilateral trade between the United Kingdom, Europe, the Diaspora with Uganda,
  • To facilitate foreign direct investment in Uganda and,
  • To provide a platform for businesses to expand into new markets and
  • Promote British businesses exporting to Uganda.

UCUK 2018 will gather key economic players including government delegations, high-profile leaders, project developers and international investors. The event will cover 10 economic sectors, particularly manufacturing, agribusiness, power, construction, transportation, IT, health, fintech, tourism and natural resources sectors. The event has a well-structured format for facilitating peer-to-peer engagement, for more advanced deal-making, co-investments, strategic partnerships, and business networking.

Over the last 6 years UCUK has substantially improved the lives of disadvantaged people in Uganda mainly in Agri and primary education sector.

With these key elements in mind, allow me, to invite you to be one of our speakers at this largest Uganda focused event in Europe on 15th September 2018, in London. We believe that your presentation at the Convention will give an insight on available opportunities in Uganda.

I look forward to hearing from  you.

Kind regards,

Willy Mutenza (Founder and Chairman, | Uganda Convention-UK (UCUK)

How to get here:

By rail: Oh so simple. Troxy is 200 metres from Limehouse Station, which is on the DLR and the C2C line from Fenchurch Street Station to Essex. When arriving at Limehouse leave via the Bekesbourne Street exit. You can pick up the DLR line from Bank (Central/Circle/Northern and Waterloo & City lines), Tower Hill (Circle/District Line) and Canary Wharf (Jubilee Line) Limehouse is only two stops (6 minutes) from these three stations.

By bus: The following buses either go past Troxy or serve the local area.

No 15 (Trafalgar Square to Blackwall Station) No 115 (Aldgate to East Ham) No 135 (Old Street to Crossharbour) D3 (Bethnal Green to Cross Harbour) N15 (Trafalgar Square to Romford) N550 (Trafalgar Square to Canning Town) N551 (Trafalgar Square to Gallions Reach).

Local streets have residents’ parking zones and we like our neighbours so would ask anyone looking for a parking space to respect them. There is a 24-hour car park next to Cineworld at West India Quay, run by Indigo Park Services. From there, you can get a taxi to us or catch the DLR at West India Quay (two stops).

The nearest hotel, the Holiday Inn Express at Limehouse, is just 300 metres away and has secure parking. We recommend booking in advance at justpark.com. You can take a chance and turn up on the day but you’re not guaranteed a space that way.

By car:

We cannot tell a lie, Commercial Road is not a parking paradise. We have red lines, not yellow, so you’ll be clamped, ticketed or towed – all of which will ruin your night out. It is possible to drop off and pick up in Caroline Street down the side of the building.
