Expert Speakers






It’s a very exciting time for Africa and for everybody involved in powering Africa’s digital economy. Technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, IoT and blockchain are already disrupting entire industries and the ability to embrace digital disruption will be a defining feature of the organisations at the forefront of African economies.

This year we’re very excited to announce the launch of the AI Summit Cape Town and IoT World Africa. These global event brands will touch down at AfricaCom to provide our best enterprise digital transformation content and networking experience ever!

We’re also thrilled to announce the AfricaCom Headliners. Thirty of Africa’s most prominent digital thought-leaders will take to the stage to discuss and debate the real issues impacting Africa’s journey towards the Fourth Industrial Revolution. And the best bit? They are all completely free to attend!

Whether you come and hear frank exchanges in off the record debates, join our seminar style sessions packed with practical advice to take back to your business or take your place in our conference tracks, we promise you will leave feeling informed, energised and equipped to transform new ideas into action.

We have dedicated the next few pages to some of AfricaCom’s best bits and with a speaker line-up that boasts 100s of the most progressive minds in tech across 20 tracks and features, you can design an experience tailored to you.

We hope you can join us in Cape Town from 13 to 15 November!
