This is North Africa Com...
North Africa’s economy and ICT sector showed resilience despite a tumultuous few years following conflict, instability and the effects of COVID-19. It has maintained its position as a leader in fixed broadband connectivity and a hub for digital innovation, with many of its countries committed to set up thriving digital economies by 2030. Technological investment will continue to be at the heart of its economic recovery and rebuilding efforts.
North Africa Com 2022 will explore how strengthening digital infrastructure and deploying disruptive 4IR technologies at scale across the region will drive affordable, accessible internet connectivity. We’ll explore how solving these on-going challenges will enable policymakers, business leaders and technology champions to drive more inclusive, sustainable growth and build more resilient economies.
Key themes for 2022
North Africa Com will look at challenges and opportunities across the region’s diverse tech ecosystems, with a special focus on how these factors are shaping the future of enterprise. This 2-day event will explore how disruptive technology, burgeoning investment, and the COVID-19 pandemic are driving a renewed urgency for accelerated innovation and digital transformation.
We’ll look at how the region’s telcos are evolving to keep pace with changing markets and customer demands, and how green ICT, smartphone affordability and robust broadband penetration are key to unlocking connectivity for the unconnected. Our continued focus on enterprise technology will include sessions examining trends across key industry verticals: How digital financial services can provide a path toward building thriving digital economies in the region, and how the next wave of disruptive innovation in GreenTech and HealthTech will be truly transformative.
This year more than ever we’re placing a special focus on impact – diving into what the digital transformation really means for businesses and communities – with the opportunity to connect those at the fore of the shifting tech landscape – from tech disruptors and investors to TMT leaders, policymakers and regulators. We will connect the dots between digital infrastructure investment, enterprise transformation, emerging tech, ICT policy and regulation, start-up investment, digital skills development and tech for good.
