African Smart Cities Summit

Africa’s urban population was reported to be the fastest growing globally and by 2030 six of the world’s 41 megacities would be in Africa. By then around 50% of Africa’s people will be urbanised, meaning that every second person in Africa would likely live in a town or a city.

How do we prepare our cities and what must be done right now to ensure the cities of tomorrow are resilient, connected, inclusive, safe and prosperous?

The 3rd annual African Smart Cities Summit prepares African cities for the future. It will bring together under one roof public and private sector players who will determine the future of African cities and reinvent urban living in the smartest ways possible.

Join us as we discover how cities are and will be creating systems that are integrated, sustainable, that increase the ease of living for citizens, make cities a safe place to live and drive economic growth in the long-run.

Together we will pave a roadmap for taking African Smart Cities from dream to reality.

Featured speakers

Programme topics will include:

  • Panel discussion: Taking African Smart Cities from dream to reality
