AfricaCom buzz
This was my first time at AfricaCom and the buzz was fantastic -- it was busy right up to the end of the event and it was clear from the people I talked to that there was a lot of learning taking place and a lot of business being done. It was a really impressive show.


[Disclaimer: I now work for the company that runs AfricaCom but I think anyone else at the event would paint the same picture -- this is also a reflection of what people, mainly from network operators, told me before and during the event.]

Re: AfricaCom buzz
It is important for event organisers to know what activities that can be carried out from Day 1 all the way towards the last day. If Day 1 does not seem inviting with a sufficiently welcoming response from participants, it is crucial for the organisers to add in new programs that would entice participants from Day 2 onwards. This can help to ensure a full participation rate throughout the entire event. Nobody would want to keep going to an event that could barely provide the content they need.
