Capacity Digital Infra Africa
Digital Infra Africa 2020 will take place in Cape Town, South Africa, on 1 – 3 April. It is Africa’s only event focused on digital infrastructure.
With increased convergence and partnerships between fibre, data centre, satellite and tower industries, Digital Infra Africa is where strategic leaders, product managers, procurement teams, buyers and sellers can meet to expand, build, and grow their footprint in Africa and beyond. The continent has exponential opportunities for global brands and as such, South Africa offers the perfect home for the inaugural event, as it enters a phase of strong colocation market growth.
Digital Infra Africa is the leading forum for networking, thought-leadership and deal-making between Africa’s most influential connectivity providers. By bringing together three brands from Capacity Media and BroadGroup (Capacity Africa, Datacloud Pan-Africa and Subsea Africa) under one roof, Digital Infra Africa will enable all sub-sectors of the digital infrastructure landscape to meet, trade and network in one place annually.

Why Cape Town?
South Africa is undergoing a period of strong colocation market growth. With recent announcements from Microsoft, Google, Huawei, Liquid Telecom and AWS over the last 12 months alone, as well as the region being a known hub for subsea, fibre, data centre and cloud activity, it was a unanimous decision to bring Capacity Media and BroadGroup's event to Cape Town.
"We are truly excited about this event which brings a focus to our efforts in several infrastructure areas across Africa: subsea, fibre, data centre and cloud. We look forward to engaging our various partners on the continent in an event with singular focus on infrastructure in Africa.”
Funke Opeke, CEO, MAINONE
An event for all connectivity leaders
Running for 14 years, Capacity Africa is the annual must-attend event for regional and international carriers. The focus for 2020 will be on expanding terrestrial projects, opportunities aligned with infrastructure sharing, alternatives to fibre connectivity such as satellite services, and the emergence of digital corridors in connecting East to West.
Datacloud focuses on data centre expansion and cloud provision growth, and will be the one-stop-shop to network, learn and trade with African digital pioneers. Hyperscale data centres are expanding with more projects announced, and global brands are setting up new head offices across the continent. Find out how you can benefit from growing demand, and discover more on Edge, power supply and regional differentiators.
Subsea infrastructure is required to support the calls for increased content provision across the continent. Whilst there have been major OTT announcements of new subsea projects, what are the trends being seen across the African subsea space as a whole? Subsea Africa examines where investment is coming from and whether current cables have the longevity to uphold the growing demand for capacity.
Global Women in Telco & Tech is Capacity Media’s flagship inclusion and diversity brand, with a full day event and awards taking place in London annually, as well as one-off sessions at our flagship events. Attendees of Digital Infra Africa can join this Breakfast Briefing to hear more about diversity initiatives across digital infrastructure players and learn how to improve own practices.
