The Connecting Africa series of events team has been closely monitoring global developments, alongside those in Kenya and East Africa. As the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak continues to develop, the event organizer, Informa Tech, has decided to move East Africa Com to a fully virtual event for 2020 on September 14-15.
For two days, world leaders in East African technology, media and telecommunications will meet online to map the journey towards the region's Fourth Industrial Revolution.
The two-day conference agenda covers telecommunications and digital enterprise opportunities and challenges. More than 40 expert industry speakers will be presenting from across the telco and tech space, alongside government ministers.
New sessions will explore the impact of COVID-19 on East Africa's tech ecosystems, and the opportunities and risks of Ethiopia's part-privatization of the continent's largest telecom monopoly, Ethio Telecom.
The virtual event will provide insight from industry leaders, the chance to connect with customers, prospects, partners and peers, and engage with some of the most influential companies within the region's tech and telecoms space.
Registration is now open. Tickets are available here.
