The largest digital infrastructure event in Africa, focused on connecting the next billion people

Driving Inclusive, Sustainable Growth Through Tech Investment

Featuring AfricaTech, AHUB and the AfricaCom Awards.


Two years ago, the world turned upside down. Technology became less about ‘the future’ and more an integral part of the present. As life moved online, our job of connecting the continent’s innovators and change-makers evolved to ensure you could continue doing what you do best – delivering on the promise of a better, more inclusive digital Africa.

You’ve told us how much you missed your annual trip to Cape Town for Africa Tech Festival, and we know that even the best virtual experience can’t replicate that live buzz – whether that’s for the inspiring speakers or discovery of new tech and telecoms innovation.
