East Africa Com returned as a virtual event in 2022!
The past two years have been a period of disruptive change across the world with technology, and particularly connectivity, playing a critical role in keeping business moving. This industry leading event will explore how innovation and new models of collaboration are helping nations navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, to unpack what the future holds for East Africa’s tech ecosystems.
As always, the agenda was packed with content curated to examine the challenges presented by the region’s pursuit of tech-enabled, 4IR-ready digital economies, with a special focus on the opportunities this journey is creating for enterprise. Top topics for 2022 included a look at how governments are collaborating to accelerate 4IR adoption, the progress of AfCFTA integration and how the framework presents a huge opportunity to boost trade and investment in the region and what the digital transformation really means for businesses and citizens – with our largest ever line-up of the region’s top service providers, connectivity and infrastructure champions, and policymakers.
