Organized by the Agence de Développement du Digital (ADD) under the aegis of the Moroccan Ministry of Digital Transition and Administrative Reform, “GITEX AFRICA Morocco” brings together public and private sector leaders, political decision-makers, investors and academics for three days of intensive exchanges between the public and private sectors of the world’s future largest digital economy.
The largest entrepreneurship event in Africa, GITEX Africa is an initiative of GITEX GLOBAL in Dubai, the world’s largest technology and start-up show, ranked as the best in the world by global technology leaders, and which makes a stopover in this first edition in Morocco, reflecting its commitment to accelerating the development of digital infrastructure in Africa.
In light of the African Union’s mission to unify the Continent into a secure digital single market by 2030, GITEX AFRICA exhibitors are optimistic about the Continent’s technology ecosystem and the trends it is creating, from increasing Internet connectivity and a dizzying start-up scene, to the rise of artificial intelligence and a flourishing fintech sector.
Major players in the Moroccan technology landscape are also committed to this adventure, in keeping with the unifying economic mission of the Kingdom, 60% of whose foreign investment is directed towards Africa.
Leadership dialogues and results-oriented meetings will dominate at GITEX AFRICA Morocco thanks to a rich program of multi-sector conferences, including the GITEX AFRICA Digital Summit and the GITEX AFRICA CEO Forum.
The GITEX AFRICA DIGITAL SUMMIT will bring together over 250 public and private sector leaders, policy makers, investors and academics, to guide Africa’s transformation into a single digital marketplace.
Major themes to be addressed at the world’s most influential forum for dialogue, exchange and collaboration range from analyzing the state of the Continent’s digital economy, to accelerating the development of an integrated and inclusive public digital infrastructure.
