Partner Events Programme

Taking over Cape Town for a week of maximised opportunities!

What is Africa Tech Festival's Partner Event Programme?

As global tech leaders from around the world fly to Cape Town to see and be seen at Africa’s biggest and most influential tech event, we will work with a host institutional and corporate partners to join forces and help them organise their own events.

Together, we will take over the Mother City and assert its position as hype global tech destination.

We will soon release a list of partner events on this page.

Please note that you will need to register for each event separately as attendance to our partner events is not included nor guaranteed in the Africa Tech Festival tickets. The partner event organisers will be responsible for admission criteria to their events.
