AfricaCom is evolving
Over the past 19 years we’ve worked closely with our community to build the biggest and best tech event in Africa. Now it’s time to up the ante. We see an exciting opportunity to elevate AfricaCom to become a powerful vehicle for digital transformation, economic development and social empowerment. It’s an ambitious vision, so how do we get there?
A bigger, bolder event with a broader audience
AfricaCom 2016 will be a week-long festival of thought-provoking content, immersive satellite events, fun new social activities, and unique networking experiences.
Using the CTICC as a hub, we’ll be spreading AfricaCom vibes across Cape Town through fun new features like the Long Street Takeover and the AFest. We’re expanding our scope to create a broad platform for everybody involved in powering the digital economy in Africa.
An enhanced networking experience
Our fundamental purpose is to connect the digital ecosystem and equip those within it to connect people and businesses in Africa. Excellent networking is absolutely critical so expect a plethora of social activities.
From structured VIP services and pre-arranged meetings to fun shared experiences around live music and sport, we guarantee that you will meet the people who matter most to you in an environment that reflects you and your business.
A fresh programme of content
The new conference programme is designed to inspire, challenge assumptions, fuel debate, and tackle the most difficult and controversial questions facing the African telecoms, media and ICT industries.
We’re working closely with industry experts to inject fresh vigour into our sessions to ensure that attendees emerge feeling informed, energised and equipped to transform new ideas into action. Prepare to be dazzled by world-class, visionary speakers.
