It is my great pleasure to announce that the Corporate Registers Forum 2018 will be held in Gaborone, Botswana from Monday 21st to Friday 25th May 2018. The year 2018 will see the Companies and Intellectual Property Authority (CIPA) relocating to its new headquarters in the Gaborone Central Business District. In an endeavour to improve service delivery and efficiency, the Authority will start offering business registration services online in 2018.

It is an honour for our country and indeed for CIPA to host the 2018 Corporate Registers Forum as one of the highlights of our achievements; an achievement that will be engraved in our history books.  The theme of the Conference is “Corporate Registries, A Critical Vehicle for Global Economic Growth.” We wish to share with you the best of our country, as we share experiences and insights on how corporate registries can become vehicles for economic growth around the globe.

We look forward to welcoming you in Gaborone, Botswana - Our Pride, Your Destination!
