An exhibition split into technology zones is to run alongside this year’s AfricaCom.
AfricaTech will take over the whole of CTICC 2 within the Cape Town International Convention Centre, with the zones and premium conferences dedicated to Internet of Things, Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence, fintech, cloud computing and data centres. There will also be enterprise Digital Transformation meet-the-buyer features, technology and industry-specific deep dive sessions and new AfricaTech social features and spaces.
The AfricaTech Centre Stage will be the centrepiece, examining how technology innovation can optimise systems and processes, drive efficiencies, boost productivity and delight customers in specific industry contexts such as agriculture, healthcare, smart cities and finance.
Meanwhile, the AHUB programme is designed to highlight the critical role of entrepreneurship in fuelling Africa’s digital economy and connect African tech startups and scale-ups to investors and corporate partners.
The theme for AfricaCom is accelerating business transformation to strengthen African economies and is an opportunity to bring together the connectivity champions critical to enabling Digital Transformation in Africa.
The event will take place between November 12 and 14, with up to 15,000 visitors, 500 exhibitors and 450 speakers in attendance over the three days.
Speakers will talk about subjects such as connectivity infrastructure, disruptive technologies, digital services and ICT strategy.
