AfricaCom, Africa’s largest telecoms and technology event, today announces the launch of AfricaTech – a new event brand dedicated to propelling Africa towards the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
Recent years have seen a surge in interest in enterprise digital transformation. Disruptive new technologies such as Internet of Things, Blockchain and Artificial Intelligence, quite recently considered to be “on the horizon”, are now being implemented.
Just like the industries we champion, AfricaCom is evolving. Our enterprise audience is growing fast as more CIOs, CDOs, CTOs and IT leaders seek expert insights on emerging technologies.
AfricaTech, which will be co-located with AfricaCom, has been designed to help our enterprise audience successfully navigate their digital transformation journeys. It will bring together enterprise CIO, CTO, CDO and digital leads from all major industry sectors.
Commenting on the launch of AfricaTech, Tom Cuthell, Event Director at Informa, organisers of AfricaCom, said “We’re excited to host all of Africa’s enterprise and technology leaders in the same place, at the same time, at a scale never seen before on the continent. IT is already having a hugely positive impact on lives and business across Africa and we hope AfricaTech will help to stimulate technology adoption and accelerate digital transformation, paving the way to Africa 4.0.”
AfricaTech is co-located with AfricaCom and will take over the whole of Cape Town’s CTICC 2. A zoned exhibition is split into dedicated technology zones dedicated to Internet of Things, Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence, Fintech, Cloud Computing and Data Centres with premium conferences on the show floor, meet-the-buyer features, technology and industry-specific deep dive sessions and brand-new social features and spaces.
For over 20 years, there has been no better place to meet everybody who’s anybody in African connectivity and communications than AfricaCom. AfricaTech will ensure that the same now applies to enterprise digital transformation.
AfricaTech is co-located with AfricaCom and takes place at Cape Town’s CTICC2 from 12 – 14 November 2019.
