Mission Afrique - SES Industry Days

Business leaders and professionals from all over Africa and the globe are headed to Cape Town for a week-long festival of tech and telco events, as part of this year's AfricaCom.

World-leading satellite operator and AfricaCom 2016 gold sponsors SES, will be holding their hugely popular, one-of-a-kind Africa Industry Day on Monday 14th November.

 "Get inspired to take your business to new levels"

The SES Industry Days is an exciting opportunity to network with other leaders in the industry, get inspired to take your business to new levels and also build your business. This SES event provides the industry with a neutral platform to discuss and debate the latest in technological and communication development.

Last year’s event, brought together many business leaders from various spheres, and sparked many interesting and thought provoking conversations in the form of panel discussions and speaker sessions, which were both informative and entertaining.

"Be the first to experience the latest trends and innovations"


This year, SES will showcase all the latest in satellite technology, so you’ll be the first to experience the latest trends and innovations. This year, SES welcomes two thought-leaders in their respective fields as key speakers: Michael Jordaan and Chris Wilson. 

Banking stalwart Michael Jordaan now heads up a private investment company, Montegray Capital, and gives strategic insights to other businesses while also holding the position of director at the Johannesburg Stock Exchange. 

Craig Wilson is the editor of Stuff Magazine and all-round tech-spert. Both will be giving thought-provoking talks to inspire and enlighten you. 

SES looks forward to welcoming you to this one-of-a-kind event.
