Prepare for the Fourth Industrial Revolution with Virtual AfricaTech 2020

A virtual interactive exhibition dedicated to AI, IoT, blockchain, fintech, cloud, data centres and security, cutting-edge content and a host of networking opportunities.

Covid-19 Update: Virtual AfricaTech

AfricaTech is an annual technology event within AfricaCom. It is the largest gathering of the tech community on the African continent, dedicated to accelerating Africa's enterprise digital transformation - attracting over 12,000 technology experts and business leaders across a broad range of industry verticals at the physical event. 

This year, after an extensive period of review and consultation, we have decided to proactively transform AfricaCom, AfricaTech and all our co-located conferences into fully-virtual events in 2020. Taking place together over a week, from 9th – 13th November, these events will become known as the Virtual Africa Tech Festival.

Going virtual in 2020 presents an excellent opportunity to make our events infinitely more accessible both within Africa and beyond. An internet connection is now all that is required to participate and be part of a community that is actively shaping Africa’s digital future. Geo and logistical restrictions are a thing of the past.

With premium content dedicated to AI, IoT, blockchain, fintech, cloud, data centres & security, a virtual exhibition featuring 100+ tech pioneers and a host of interactive networking opportunities, if you are looking to do business in Africa then talk to us about our sponsorship, exhibition and partnership opportunities today.
