SMART CITY AFRICA is a ‘must attend’ event engineered to weigh opportunities, assess the risk landscape and measure the challenges that lie ahead for Cote D’Ivoire as it implements the nationally mandated sustainable urbanization process decreed by the ministries . It is also where relationships with strategic players driving this process in Cote D’Ivoire will be forged --including with international financiers, and venture capitalists ready to help local entrepreneurs expand their projects and pilot programs.
Here are the reasons why 300 delegates - including 48 international vendors of urban development solutions and technology - are expected to take part in the inaugural edition of SMART CITY AFRICA:
SMART CITY AFRICA is sized to welcome a limited number of international vendors, allowing each one of them enough time to interact with prospects, and better assess opportunities.
We take the time to understand individual objectives. From initial contact, and throughout a long preparatory phase, our dedicated team carefully manages the expectations of every single one of our delegates.
Meetings are planned in-house three months in advance. Their organization marries detailed intelligence about companies and their representatives, old-school market research and modern matchmaking technologies.
Delegates will be inspired by an amazing agenda of visionary keynotes, instructional sessions and company presentations led by industry experts, civil servants and political leaders.
Delegates will create important and long-lasting bonds as they benefit from strategic networking opportunities, that will plug them into relationships and information sources that will help them make effective decisions.
Startup founders and entrepreneurs will be able to find solutions to accelerate their business, secure funding and raise investors interest in an environment that is shaping up to be very favorable.
We will take the extra steps to help delegates plan and deploy their post-event strategy as such efforts will be critical to maximize SMART CITY AFRICA’s impact, and for companies to stay on the radar of vendors and prospects.
