ELEVATE YOUR KNOWLEDGE AND PROFESSIONAL STATUS AT AFRICACOM

This year, we introduced our brand new digital learning programme, the AfricaCom Digital Badges

The digital learning programme was available for four of the AfricaCom conference tracks - 5G, AI, IoT and Fintech. Successful completion of each programme resulted in delegates receiving a digital badge from the AfricaCom executive education team

Global tech and telco trends impacting African business

In 2018, we welcomed leading global events AI Summit and IoT World Africa to AfricaCom!

Delegates learnt about the implementation of game-changing technologies at the forefront of digital transformation that boost productivity, unlock new opportunities and drive efficiencies across all industries and business functions.

The Digital Heartbeat of Africa

The AHUB

The AHUB: Unleashing the power of Africa's tech start-up ecosystem! In partnership with Africa’s leading accelerators and innovation hubs, the AHUB highlighted the critical role of entrepreneurship in fuelling Africa's digital economy, and connected African tech start-ups and scale-ups to investors and corporate partners.

The Awards

The Awards recognised the achievements of the best companies, solutions, products and personalities improving connectivity and driving Africa through the fourth industrial revolution. See who our winners were for 2018!

LeadersIn Africa

LeadersIn Africa was a programme of exclusive content and immersive networking experiences for the most senior and influential AfricaCom attendees. The Chatham House Rule applied so sessions were off-the-record to encourage frank and productive dialogue between industry heavyweights, telecoms and ICT regulators, policymakers, senior subject matter experts and thought leaders.

THE AFEST WAS BACK WITH A BANG IN 2018, RETURNING TO SHIMMY BEACH CLUB!
