Who We Are

Amplify Africa is a culture brand with a mission to create multiple platforms for the world to experience the beauty and excellence of the African culture through entertainment.  For the past 4 years we have worked hard to make sure that the African story is being told properly to the world through our Amplify Africa experience initiative, an event platform. Through this platform, our team has successfully done 100+ events and have created multiple event brands that have brought African talent, Music, fashion, food and culture to the world. Some of the experiences are Afrolituation, a dance party that has now become the biggest African experience party in North America.  Made in Africa, the biggest annual African concert and artist showcase in Los Angeles which usually takes place during the BET Awards weekend.  And the Afro ball (in partnership with the US Congress) , a high fashion-conscious Gala where we celebrate and honor Africans who are excelling in various industries and amplifying Africa. (We like to call it African MET Gala).

Networking

  1. Can I choose who I'm peered with?
No. Matching is 100% random. You’ll never meet the same person twice. You can stop meeting with someone and move to the next person anytime you want.

2. Can I talk to people for longer than 3 mins?
No, the video chat will end after 3 mins. So if you’d like to continue the conversation, make sure you “connect” before the 3 mins run out. To share contact information and “connect,” both participants will need to press the "connect" button on the video. 

Your connections become stored on your profile screen under "Connections.” You can find all of your “Connections” after the event by clicking the blue Hopin symbol (whirlwind top left) and going to "My Account.”

3. Can I chat directly with other attendees?
Yes. However, you can only chat directly with other attendees if you first “connect” with them in the networking area. To find your connections in the chat, 1) go to the “People” tab 2) filter for “My Connections” 3) Start chatting!
