Africa’s communications landscape has changed drastically in 2010, most notably thanks to investments and acquisitions by major operator groups, and to the launch of new submarine cables which are vastly improving capacity.
It is these market changes that will form the backdrop to discussions and learning at Africa’s largest annual congress and exhibition – the 13th annual AfricaCom (www.comworldseries.com/africa). Taking place in Cape Town on 10-11 November 2010, AfricaCom is designed to equip the 4,000 attending African operators, solutions and technology providers with all the contacts, insights and predictions they need to ensure they are one step ahead, not only of the competition but also of market changes.

Special Focus sessions include Efficiency and ROI Strategies; LTE; VAS; Marketing, Pricing and Loyalty; Mobile Money; Fibre Optics; Broadband Data Services; WiMAX; and Capacity & Wholesale. With so many sessions to choose from, AfricaCom is the only event telcos need attend to stay abrest of future and recent market dynamics.
