Message from the President

Dear Colleagues

Allow me to first wish you the very best – for your health and safety.

This year we are pleased to announce that the 2022 edition will once again be an ‘in person’ event and will take place at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC 2) on the 28th and 29th September.

We are closely monitoring the Covid 19 pandemic and if need be we may postpone the event.

Should we be fortunate that our event goes ahead it will strictly follow Government guidelines to ensure that we create a safe environment for our speakers, sponsors and delegates.

We are committed to taking care of our attendees and staff’s well-being and will take all necessary precautions to ensure the health and safety of everyone.

As with all our events, the aim of the Conext Conference is to support the sector by convening an event where industry leaders can identify and solve issues specific to digital infrastructure, learn about new technological developments and best practices, and build professional relationships.

It has been a long time since we have been able to do this in a face-to-face way, and we look forward to seeing all of you in Cape Town!

Thank you in advance for your support. Feel free to contact the team for more information.

I would like to start by wishing you my personal best—for your health and safety in these difficult times.

The aim of the annual Digital Council Africa conference is to support the sector by convening an event where industry leaders can identify and solve issues specific to our sector, learn about new technological development and best practices, and build professional relationships. This year we will remain in virtual setting as we wait out the COVID storm that is still ongoing.  

This year we will also cover how the pandemic changed the sector and to inform you about which changes are permanent, which are temporary, and what can be expected in the years to come.

The digital economy poses tremendous opportunity for African countries, but in order to harness its potential we have to work together in public private partnerships to ensure that we move our continent forward. 

The exponential rate at which technology is developing, mutating, and adapting is so fast that we have to apply certain effort to keep pace with technological change and how it will affect our business and lives. While the future is becoming more difficult to predict with each passing year, an accelerating pace of technological change can be expected.

To date, technology has literally changed every aspect of the way any business operates and never before in history has that change occurred so fast.

The annual Digital Council Africa Conference kept participants abreast of the sector as we explored the world of Fibre, 5G, Cloud & Data, Cybersecurity & Governance and Iot & Edge as well as the impact on the industry and the opportunities it holds for the continent. The 2021 edition brought together like minded individuals from all over the world over a 5 day period with expert speakers who shared local and international expertise on topics relevant to the various streams.

We hope to once again host an in-person event in 2022, watch this space for more details.

Join the conversation and add your voice to Africa’s role in the global digital economy!
