AfricaCom 2017 – Celebrating 20 years of Telecoms Technology
The Cape Town International Conference Centre was once again the chosen venue for the AfricaCom Conference and Exhibition. The 2017 event was held over three stimulating and innovation filled days which ran from 7 – 9 November.
Once again, Extruct Exhibition is proud to announce that we were one of the preferred suppliers to this exhibition filled with amazing and cutting edge technology.
Billed as the “place to shape Africa’s digital future”, AfricaCom 2017 was the place to be for exhibitors and delegates to not only network and increase their brand or product visibility, but also to seal their best deals.
With more than 14 000 visitors to this year’s AfricaCom exhibition, it is important to note that this exhibition featured world class international key-note speakers and a business critical agenda, 16 conference tracks, and as part of AfricaCom’s 20th anniversary, a brand new exhibition hall, The Technology Arena, which was dedicated to the mapping of Africa’s journey through the fourth industrial revolution. This arena hosted the new AfricaCom 20/20 show floor feature, the AHUB, the Innovation Stage and TV Connect Africa where visionary insights into future technology trends and innovative and new digital products could be showcased.
Extruct Exhibition was very well prepared for this year’s AfricaCom and our professional team of decision makers went above and beyond our clients’ expectations when it came to planning and preparing.
Taking care of the logistics of such an enormous conference with more than 450 exhibition stands spread over multiple halls, is why Extruct Exhibition is one of the preferred suppliers to AfricaCom. Our team was dedicated to ensuring that our clients had first class stands designed, constructed and erected.
For AfricaCom 2017 Extruct Exhibition was able to start preparations a few days before the exhibition opened and our professional staff ensured that all our clients stands were ready on time, proving that we are capable of working under pressure to guarantee that schedules are met, both before and after, when deconstructing the stands safely is also part of our proficient services.
It is important to note that Extruct Exhibition is especially proud of the booth that our capable staff created for The AHUB, where investors, VC’s and private equity partners could meet with new start up businesses and discover their advanced innovative ideas for Africa’s technology revolution. The AHUB programme is purposed to bring to attention the role of entrepreneurship in the African continent’s digital economy and to allow a smart, comfortable space where attendees and exhibitors can network with possible investors.
For The AHUB, Extruct Exhibition constructed a beautiful space where delegates and attendees could share their ideas in a safe and calm environment. Modern and functional furnishings were chosen which cumulated in a relaxing yet professional domain where the most active sophisticated VC’s and investors could collaborate at AfricaCom, the only event of scale for this industry in Africa.
