AfricaCom, one of Africa’s largest telecoms and technology events, has announced the launch of AfricaTech – a new event dedicated to propelling Africa towards the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
Recent years have seen a surge in interest in enterprise digital transformation. Disruptive new technologies such as the Internet of Things, Blockchain and Artificial Intelligence, quite recently considered to be ‘on the horizon’, are now being implemented.
AfricaTech, which will be co-located with AfricaCom, has been designed to help AfricaCom’s enterprise audience successfully navigate their digital transformation journeys. It will bring together enterprise CIO, CTO, CDO and digital leads from all major industry sectors.
Commenting on the launch of AfricaTech, Tom Cuthell, event director at Informa, organisers of AfricaCom, said, “We’re excited to host all of Africa’s enterprise and technology leaders in the same place, at the same time, at a scale never seen before on the continent. IT is already having a hugely positive impact on lives and business across Africa and we hope AfricaTech will help to stimulate technology adoption and accelerate digital transformation, paving the way to Africa 4.0.”
AfricaTech is co-located with AfricaCom and takes place at Cape Town’s CTICC 2 from 12 tp 14 November 2019. For more information click here.
