About The Summit

About The Summit

The digital landscape in Africa and around the world has witnessed a profound impact due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The social distancing measures put in place to curb the spread of the pandemic have highlighted the value of connectivity for social and economic welfare. The pandemic has underlined the importance of a robust and inclusive digital economy, reinforced by universal access to fast, reliable connectivity and a range of digital services for individuals and businesses.

Despite changes in data consumption patterns, the telecom industry in Africa has risen to the challenge of keeping businesses and individuals connected during the pandemic. Regulators and policymakers should implement policies to reinforce access to connectivity and encourage investment in more resilient digital infrastructure for the future.

The 2020s will witness a strong growth in the number of Africans connected to mobile networks. As 4G and 5G grow together, through the decade to come, spectrum preparation can enable cost efficiency and promote growth.

With this as a driver, ICSA presents Connected Africa. The Summit will deliberate on, and focus on developing solutions to, critical ICT issues. The Summit is a not to be missed opportunity for experts, business people, and practitioners to discuss practical and cost-effective solutions to developing the ICT business.

Why Attend

WHAT'S IN STORE FOR YOU AT CONNECTED AFRICA?

  • HONE THE SAW

    While the ‘hone the saw’ thought unquestionably pre-dates Stephen Covey, he records it as his seventh propensity for profoundly powerful individuals. The thought is that occasionally you need to take a break from the ‘work’ of your work to hone your abilities. A dull hatchet won't cut a tree so viably as a sharp one. Try not to be the woodcutter hacking ceaselessly at the tree with a dull hatchet while your opposition slices it down the middle with a sharp one. Or Simply just use the knowledge acquired at the conference to achieve the best in your organization.

  • Our network facilitators are well equipped to make sure you get to interact with top C-Suite Executives. The Summit is exclusively for C-Suite Executives and decision makers and therefore will network and engage with experts that have a success story with best practices and case studies. Also, as a solution provider you will be meeting your direct buyer. People who have the capacity to buy your product or solution or at least influence the decision to buy. This is an opportunity you do not want to miss.

  • Connected Africa, will have global leaders from the Telecommunications space providing insights on best practices for innovation and adoption and case studies that have proven to be a great success.

  • Global Industry Experts, who will delve into the latest cutting-edge tools and frameworks – shaping the business – will also share case studies and success stories that help acquire a competent viewpoint on the challenges in achieving your set goals.

Venue

ACCESS THE SUMMIT EXCLUSIVELY ON THE LEADING VIRTUAL EVENT PLATFORM

Virtual Is Now

The summit will be held digitally. We are pretty sure given your recent virtual conference experiences you are re-thinking or re-aligning your conference attending strategy. We would like to highlight the fact that our last conference was held virtually and was awarded the "Best Financial Conference of the Year in the Region" in 2020. The reason why the summit was well received is simply because the platform is structured and designed in a manner that you will have a life like experience rather than it looking like a simple video call/meeting.

The summit will be a 3D experience where you will from the moment you log in feel like you are at a 5 star venue where you can visit the reception and be greeted by the host who will then give you an option to choose whether you would like to visit the -
1. Conference Hall
2. Exhibition Hall
3. Networking Hall
4. VIP Room


All the above halls are designed to give a real life experience and are devised in a vision to give you best of networking possible where you can choose who you want to chat with directly on the platform or speak to them on a video/audio call or else set up a meeting for a later date and hence, this is not any other virtual conference you have attended but the best.
