East Africa Com, 12 – 13 May 2020, Nairobi, Kenya.
Incredible progress is being made across the East African technology and telecoms industries. The region is regarded as a leading innovator in sectors throughout the industry, both on the African continent and globally. As government policy increasingly helps to realise ICT’s promise as a powerful enabler of positive change, maturing ecosystems are nurturing new businesses and innovations at an unprecedented rate.
As enterprise digital transformation establishes a stronger foothold, the industry looks towards which new technologies will fill previously unseen niches and exploit untapped opportunities. The
event will explore how maturing disruptive technologies – Internet of Things, 5G, Blockchain and Artificial Intelligence – are being implemented by businesses embracing change across the region.
East Africa Com 2020 will explore these key themes with top speakers from across the region’s technology sector providing expert insight and driving lively discussion. With 700+ attendees expected in 2020 and a 31% CXO level audience, delegates will have the opportunity to connect with those at the fore of the shifting landscape – from tech disruptors and investors at AHUB East, to TMT leaders, policymakers and regulators.
Within each new theme, East Africa Com sessions will be framed in three questions central to the region’s digital transformation and societal benefit from the fourth industrial revolution. These are:
- How does this topic affect businesses and, importantly, the lives of people in East Africa?
- How is government policy and regulation affecting the topic, could more be done to facilitate technological progress?
- What are the emerging in the East African region doing to harness the transformative power of technology?
East Africa Com brings together experts and industry stakeholders from across telecommunications, technology and digital media in a premium two-day ICT event. The event connects and informs the entire East African digital ecosystem, while shining a light on the disruptors so critical to improving the way we communicate and do business.
