Welcome To Virtual Africa Tech Festival

After an extensive period of review and consultation, we have decided to proactively transform AfricaCom, AfricaTech and all our co-located conferences into fully virtual events in 2020. Taking place together over a week, from 9th – 13th November, these events will become known as the Virtual Africa Tech Festival. Virtual Africa Tech Festival will be the culmination of 23 years of connecting and informing business leaders, technology experts and policymakers on the continent. Our mission is to equip and inspire people to design, build and run a better, more inclusive, digital world – to unify Africa’s response to the 4IR and, in doing so, accelerate socio-economic development across the continent. Far from hindering this mission, recent events have only strengthened our resolve.
