The event takes place in Cape Town, South Africa – the second-most populous urban area in the country. In 2014, the city was listed as the best place in the world to visit by the American New York Times and the British Daily Telegraph.
An interesting fact worth mentioning is that Cape Town is located at approximately the same geographical latitude as Sydney and Buenos Aires and equivalent to Casablanca and Los Angeles in the northern hemisphere. So now you know!
An important part of the event is The AfricaCom Awards which celebrate the achievements of the best companies, products and personalities improving connectivity and driving Africa through the fourth industrial revolution.
