Labacorp Group has been working for 10 years across African countries. We are now positioned as a strong player in economic sectors with a game plan and “blueprint” for taping into Africa’s opportunities, 100% geared towards the development of the African Continent.
Labacorp Group is built around the strong and development vision of its founder, Mr. Bako Ambianda.
Started From the Bottom
Labacorp Group was founded in 2012 as an events company in the United States, with deep roots in the arena of conferences, exhibitions, and trade missions. President Barack Obama is organizing the Energy Congress 2012 and speaking at various Colleges in DMV (D.C, Maryland, and Virginia). A need arises for a local agency to organize the Congresses at some colleges. It is on this occasion that Bako Ambianda who was serving as the President of International Student Association (ISA) at Anne Community College, will lead a major team to plan and organize community events, the recipe that will make the success of the GAA (Global Attain Advancement, LLC now GAA Exhibitions & Conferences) which can truly be considered as the foundation of the Labacorp Group.
