About the AfricaCom VIP Programme

VIP Community

The AfricaCom VIP Programme is a community, designed to foster business relationships with the most senior industry players, and create environments for networking and peer led benchmarking. Starting from your initial contact with our VIP Relations Manager, through to the welcome onsite, helping you build long term symbiotic relationships is our key focus.

To help you maximise every minute at AfricaCom, our team will design a schedule of tailor-made events and personal introductions that will help you make new contacts, discover new international distribution platforms and channels, and surround yourself with the people who inspire you the most.


Explore our luxury networking space for executive leaders at AfricaCom, re-imagined for 2019

This year, there's a new vision for the VIP Village at AfricaCom, with a host of new features to connect you with the industry elite.

The VIP Experience

Smart Networking

Curated One-On-One Meetings

The cornerstone of our networking services are our curated one-on-ones. These are bespoke, pre-arranged meetings especially designed to reduce the time you spend on selecting new partners, to forge new relationships for future projects and enable better understanding of connected technology.

Personalised Meeting Agenda

We understand that our guests lead extremely busy lives and find it difficult to find time for networking. At AfricaCom we offer you a personalised service of a dedicated VIP Manager to make your visit to the show more productive helping you connect with all the right people. We endeavor to make your time at the event both productive and enjoyable and allow you to fulfill any pre-set event goals.

Group Networking Activities - Power Hours 

Our innovative format allows you to meet with multiple senior executives in order to discuss current projects and future challenges in a light hearted and informal way. You will be joined by specially selected technology leaders, speakers, analysts and solution providers.


Bespoke Events

VIP Golf Tournament Pearl Valley Golf Course

Tee off the week in the best way possible by taking on fellow executive leaders at the annual AfricaCom golf day.

VIP Welcome Drinks Reception 

Launched in 2016 with great success, we will once again hold the VIP Welcome Drinks at the Westin. This is the best time to ensure you’re building exclusive relationships with our VIP community before the event even starts!


Blow off some steam at the liveliest party in town! Expect a stunning line-up of African artists and a buzzing networking experience that you will never forget.

Bespoke Functions

Through series of tailor-made events you will have unique opportunity to make new contacts and discover new international distribution platforms and channels.


Unlocking New Opportunities

This year we are opening access to other events across Connected Innovation and Connecting Africa portfolios. That means that you might be eligible to access the biggest technology shows in the world including Internet of Things World in Silicon Valley and TechXLR8 festival in London! 


The LeadersIn Africa Programme

VIP delegates will be invited to join LeadersIn Africa, a three day programme of exclusive content and immersive networking experiences. Sessions will be held off-the-record to encourage frank and productive dialogue between industry heavyweights, telecoms and ICT regulators, policymakers, senior subject matter experts and thought leaders.


One of the most valuable aspects of AfricaCom is the relationships that you make. Every element of our festival is designed to maximize those meaningful connection opportunities and to make sure they appeal to all our participants – from more hesitant introverts to avid hand-shakers. Many of these will be spontaneous, with people in fields you might not have imagined have such relevance to your own pursuits, while many will be more intentional. In order to help facilitate these chance meetings, AfricaCom VIP team offers you an array of events, ranging from informal parties and lunch discussions, to sessions that incorporate dialogue among participants, like workshops and fireside chats.

"There's only one thing more precious than our time and that's who we spend it on."
