CONNECTING THE CONTINENT
Digital Infra Africa 2020 will take place in Cape Town, South Africa, on 1 – 3 April. It is Africa’s first and only digital infrastructure event, where innovation meets investment, and change is inspired.
International connectivity to and from Africa as well as building reliable networks between its 54 countries, is fast becoming the number one priority for the global telecoms infrastructure industry.
In response to this growing demand, Capacity Media and BroadGroup are launching Digital Infra Africa. This is the industry event for advancing projects and investments in the African infrastructure space. It will draw out consolidation and diversification trends, whilst also facilitating regional and international partnerships for the fibre, data centre, cloud, content, satellite, tower and mobile industries.

Why Cape Town?
Cape Town was voted as the location of choice by the Digital Infra Africa Advisory Board. This is due to South Africa’s strong colocation market growth, with recent announcements from Microsoft, Google, Huawei, Liquid Telecom and AWS over the last 12 months. In addition, it is a known hub for subsea, fibre, data centre and cloud activity, as well as having a strong presence of content providers. Other benefits include accessibility for regional and international players, providing the ideal backdrop for multiple functions hosted by industry players.
