The VIP Village

A luxury networking space for executive leaders

The VIP Village is a luxury networking space, designed exclusively for our most senior and influential attendees. It's the perfect place to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the show floor and spend time chatting to CEOs, CIOs, CDOs, investors and government leaders.

Take your place at the VIP Village

Situated in the spacious Ballroom at AfricaCom, the VIP Village is the perfect place to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the show floor and spend time chatting to CEOs, CIOs, CDOs, investors and government leaders.

We have a number of opportunities available at the VIP Village for you to entertain your clients, host private meetings, participate in closed-door, interactive Boardroom sessions or simply relax and re-charge with those driving Africa’s digital transformation.

If you're interested in sponsorship opportunities, please get in touch with Becky Lyons / +44 (20) 701 74725 or download our VIP VIllage brochure for more information.

This year I enjoyed a shift towards greater partnering between network operators and the content world. I also enjoyed The Village - somewhere calm to catch a breath.
