After close consultation with key stakeholders across the African tech industry, combined with advice from governments and the World Health Organization, the Informa Tech management team has made some key changes to the 2020 Connecting Africa series of events.
East Africa Com
East Africa Com has been postponed to Monday, September 14-Tuesday, September 15, 2020 in Nairobi, Kenya.
The event will continue to run a similar agenda and speaker lineup with key topics focusing on the region's place in the Fourth Industrial Revolution, bridging the digital divide, AI and beyond, and other topics driving East Africa's enterprise digital transformation.
West Africa Com
West Africa Com has been postponed to Wednesday, September 30-Thursday, October 1, 2020, in Dakar, Senegal.
The event will go ahead with a similar agenda and speaker lineup, with topics focusing on emerging tech, connectivity and uniting the Anglophone and Francophone TMT markets.
The Informa Tech team has taken the difficult decision to postpone Nigeria Com 2020 until 2021.
While it may not be the right time to run a full Nigeria Com event this year, we remain committed to exploring the most important issues and opportunities in the Nigeria tech and innovation industry and have some exciting plans for 2020.
AfricaCom and AfricaTech
The 2020 AfricaCom and AfricaTech events will continue to run this year from Tuesday, November 10-Thursday, November 12 in Cape Town, South Africa. More information including the agenda, speaker lineup and new event updates will be announced soon.
