How Virtual Works

A breakdown of our virtual features which will deliver a personalised event tailored to your telecoms needs.

Make a first-impression

Your personal profile will act as your 'face' for the event - letting people know who you are and what you're looking to get out of the event. Remember - the more you put in at this stage, the more you'll get out.

Add information about your company, a short pitch about what you're looking to achieve or learn about, include your social media links and you're good to go.


As you fill out your attendee profile, you’ll be asked to select from a variety of attendee types and subject-matter interests. Both that you're interested in and that you offer.

Our smart algorithm will then suggest people you may want to connect with based on the information you've provided. If you see someone you’d like to meet, you can easily reach out with our instant message and live chat functionality to schedule a one-to-one video meeting.

The more complete your profile is, the more helpful the tool will be.


Our live-messaging software makes it easier than ever to communicate with other attendees during the conference.

Whether you want to simply say hi, ask a question, find out a bit more about them or arrange a time for a video meeting.

Host Meetings

Our video meeting software is contained within the event platform. Look through the list of fellow attendees, reach out to people via our instant-messaging software and arrange a good time to meet.

Jump back into your schedule at that time and the meeting will open, placing you both into a virtual meeting room.


Watch our leading content either live or on-demand.

  • Live streamed content will feature speakers and panelists taking place in a live discussion - you'll be watching in real time. Plus, you will be able to add comments, ask questions and see who else is watching along with you
  • On-demand - content will be made available after the event for attendees to re-watch or catch anything they may have missed

Go Mobile

Africa Tech Festival will be more accessible than ever before with access via an online platform and whilst we recommend that users login their computer to stream content or catch up on demand, there is also a mobile version to take with you when you're on the go.

Live message or hold your video calls on your phone to take part in the event from wherever you need to be!
