The regions event for telecoms and technology has moved online

West Africa Com will now take place as a virtual event aimed at uniting the West African Francophone and Anglophone Technology, Media and Telecoms Markets.

Event Update: We have moved virtual!

We have since been closely monitoring global developments, alongside those in Senegal and West Africa. As the situation and impact of the coronavirus continues to develop, we have decided to move West Africa Com to a fully virtual event for 2020.
