The Luanda International Fair is a stage to showcase and promote national production, which emphasises the diversification of the economy, business and the promotion of employment.

As the largest multi-sectoral fair, FILDA has been the main showcase for the presentation of national companies, brands, products and services.

The fair promotes exchange and diversification, bringing together national and foreign entrepreneurs in all of its editions to establish business contacts, commercial and diplomatic relations with Angola.

Since its first edition in 1983, FILDA has been seen by exhibitors as a showcase of Angola’s capabilities and potential to stimulate the increase of national production and launch of new economic bridges.

Until 2016, FILDA was organised by different management entities, with the Ministry of Economy and Planning as promoter of the event and Eventos Arena as organizer since the 33rd edition.
