About us

Shebelle Ethiopia Conference Services is a conference and event organizer based in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The company is managed by Mr. Yohannes Kifle, who has over twenty years of experience in conference organizing. From 1982 to 1988, as the Deputy and then General Manager of the National Tourism Organization, he was responsible for organizing the annual Heads of State and Government Summits which were hosted by the Ethiopian Government.

In September 1988, he was appointed as Chief of Protocol of the Organization of African Unity (OAU), a position he held until August 1999. In that position, he was responsible for the physical organization of the OAU Summits, the Bi-annual Council of Ministers as well as many other meetings organized by the OAU during the course of each year. He has, inter-alia, organized the African Leaders' meetings in Abuja, Nigeria; Algiers, Algeria; Cairo, Egypt; Dakar, Senegal; Tunis, Tunisia; and in several other African capitals.


We have had various experiences with event organizers over the years; the experience with Shebelle has been one of complete satisfaction. Shebelle did a great job joining to support a complex and intense international initiative. The company delivered outstanding service from the onset, and continued to provide full support throughout the event, including the follow-up phase. We were positively impressed by the dedication of the Shebelle team and its ability to understand our needs and often thinking ahead with initiative and innovation. In short, Shebelle certainly exceeded our expectations, and we have no hesitation in recommending the services of Shebelle to any party seeking to organize a successful event in Addis.
