NOVACOM has organised yet another prestigious digital summit in South Africa


Africa is a continent of immense potential and opportunities, especially in the field of telecommunications. With a population of over 1.3 billion people, many of whom are still unconnected to the internet, Africa represents a US$100 billion opportunity for the telecom industry. However, to tap into this market, telcos need to embrace digital transformation and innovation, which are essential for delivering quality services and enhancing customer experience. That is why NOVACOM Summits, a leading organiser of exclusive networking and business events for the telecom industry, is bringing its first-ever African edition of the Digital Transformation Strategy Summit to Cape Town, South Africa, from 5th to 7th September. This prestigious event will gather executive decision-makers from leading African telecommunications companies and solution providers in a five-star, world-class setting in the Cape Winelands.

The summit aims to foster strategic relationships and collaborations among industry leaders, as well as to provide insights and inspiration on how to drive digital transformation in Africa. The summit will feature pre-qualified one-on-one business meetings, in-person networking opportunities, peer-led round table discussions, and thought-provoking workshops covering a variety of topics, from building resilience during a power crisis to monetising 5G.

The keynote speaker for the summit is none other than Juliet Ehimuan, a renowned digital transformation expert and former Director of Google West Africa. Juliet has over 12 years of experience in leading Google’s operations and initiatives in the region, such as introducing Google products like Google Maps and YouTube, and spearheading the Equiano subsea fibre capacity cable project along the West Coast of Africa. Juliet is now actively involved in guiding enterprises and telcos on their digital transformation journeys, perfectly aligning with NOVACOM’s vision and purpose.

Ryan Anderson, the Founder of NOVACOM Summits and a South African native, says: “We are thrilled to host the inaugural African edition of the Digital Transformation Strategy Summit, bringing together the brightest minds and visionaries in the telecom industry. This gathering’s core ambition is to facilitate digital transformation in Africa through the unique opportunity to connect the continent’s leading telcos with innovative solutions providers, so we can connect the next 1 billion people. We are honoured to have Juliet Ehimuan as our keynote speaker, who embodies the spirit of innovation and progress that drives our industry forward.”

The Digital Transformation Strategy Summit is an invitation-only event for senior executives from the telecom industry. Those interested in participating in the summit can request for invitation by emailing [email protected].
