The Business Technology Show is promising to be Africa’s most influential gathering showcasing latest tech trends, examining the ever-changing mobility and application, and focusing on the evolution of cloud adoption.

Conference and exhibition producer, Kinetic, has already confirmed major industry players to get involved during the early production stages of the show. An advisory panel including Sunil Joshi, CEO for Neotel; David Visser, CIO for Coca Cola and Minister Naledi Pandor from the Ministry of Science And Technology have been consulted to create an agenda that is both current and topical.

Sunil Joshi, MD and CEO of Neotel, a subsidiary of Tata Communications Limited, brings more than 26 years of experience in the Global IT&T Industry (ICT) to the table. He has led Tata Communications’ strategy for Emerging Markets, and more recently led the Global Enterprise Solutions segment.

David has been the CIO of Coca-Cola Southern Africa and has been with the Coca-Cola Company for 13 years. He was promoted to lead the IT efforts for the Southern Africa region of Coca-Cola in March 2013. He is responsible for all aspects of technology (operations, programs, desk side support etc.) and works closely with this geography’s bottling partner’s technology leaders to drive efficiency across the system.

Minister Naledi Pandor from South Africa’s Ministry of Science and Technology was the first woman and last Chancellor of the Cape Technikon. She became an MP in 1994 and has amassed impressive experience in positions of public office, including deputy chief whip of the ANC in the National Assembly from 1995 to 1998, deputy chairperson of the National Council of Provinces in 1998, and its Chairperson from 1999-2004. Her experience in education policy planning made her a welcome appointment as South Africa’s Minister of Education from 2004-2009. She was appointed Minister of Science and Technology in May 2009.

In addition to an agenda that merges on-point knowledge-sharing with practical insights, The Business Technology show will take attendees from the conference room to the exhibition floor and to technical demonstrations, allowing them a 360 degree viewpoint of the latest and greatest of Business Technology.

Join us to hear the experts at the Business Technology Show taking place 25 – 26 August 2015 at the Westin hotel in Cape Town.
