AFRICAN CONNECTIVITY BEGINS HERE
Digital Infra Africa will take place in Cape Town, South Africa, in April 2020. It is Africa’s first and only digital infrastructure event, where innovation meets investment, and change is inspired.
Digital Infra Africa is the leading forum for networking, thought leadership and deal-making between Africa’s biggest investors and connectivity providers. The African market holds huge potential given growth in fibre and data centre take up, fuelled by content demand and cloud delivery, with Africa considered the world’s last frontier market for global brands. South Africa offers the perfect home for the inaugural event, as it enters a phase of strong colocation market growth.
Uniting six brands under one roof – Capacity Africa, Datacloud Pan Africa, Subsea Africa, Power100, Leaders of Tomorrow and Women in Telco & Tech, it is the only digital infrastructure event in Africa for cloud, data centre, carrier, content, satellite and mobile industries. Designed to drive consolidation of infrastructure and increase regional partnerships, with an exhibition and programme focused on trading opportunities in East, West, North, South and Central Africa, this is the unmissable new event for you to cement in your 2020 calendar.

Why South Africa?
South Africa is home to some of the largest Tier 1 carriers, content providers and data centres in Africa. It is the biggest hub connecting most subsea and terrestrial cables, due to its accessible location that unites the entire continent. Combine this with the increasing amount of content that is residing in Africa and you are presented with the perfect location for the launch of Digital Infra Africa 2020.
The Largest Digital Infrastructure Event for Africa in 2020
Bringing a focus on terrestrial infrastructure and carrier activity across the continent, Capacity Africa will deliver the latest trends and topics facing your business. Hear from the CEOs of the continent’s biggest carriers and telecom tech providers in the dedicated Capacity Africa agenda.
Datacloud Pan Africa will focus on investing, powering, connecting, and deploying data centres across the continent, as well as discuss the challenges for Africa’s digital economy and growth. The agenda will bring tailored content and networking opportunities for data centre and cloud players, their customers, investors and suppliers.
The region’s leading, dedicated summit for the subsea community. As the world’s biggest companies turning their eyes to the African continent, there has never been a more exciting time to work in the subsea space. Subsea Africa is where the whole value chain meets to learn, network and do business, with cable operators, data centres, content providers, cloud companies, investors and more all under one roof.
Created by Capacity in 2019, the Power 100 is the definitive list of people who are shaping the future of the industry. Following a first meet-up of Power 100 members at Capacity Europe 2019, we will be bringing together more members of the group at Digital Infra Africa 2020. This will be an invite-only, closed-door session for exclusive networking and business meetings.
Championing inclusion, encouraging diversity and ensuring equality is one of the biggest priorities facing our generation in the workplace. Global Women in Telco & Tech (GWTT) is a forum where we spark debate, create initiatives and connect together to build a better future workforce for all.
