Memo

In 2018, Egyptian President H.E. Abdel Fattah El Sisi announced the launch of a government initiative to train 10,000 young Egyptians to become gaming and app developers within the next three years and support the establishment of 100 companies specialised in these sectors across Egypt and Africa. To realise the President's vision to cultivate and grow the gaming and applications development market in the region, we are proud to announce the launch of the Africa Games and Digital Applications Conference and Exhibition. The event will be associated and co-located with the wildly popular Insomnia Egypt Gaming Festival which launched in October 2018 with an overwhelming success. In its own right, Insomnia UK (the parent event of Insomnia Egypt) is one of the largest events of its kind in Europe which adds to this being the perfect place and time for this launch. The goal of this unique event is to: Form a strategic platform for government entities from across the continent to engage with the industryProvide an all-encompassing experience for the developer to understand the potential of this exciting sector. The strategic section of the conference programme will attract senior government officials within the communications and IT industries from across Africa. It will also give senior management within the following industries a chance to assess where Africa is heading in these fields and where and how the opportunities can be realized: ITTelecommunicationsApp/Game developersPublishersContent creatorsContent distributorseSports platforms Please get in touch with us for sponsorship and exhibition opportunities at this unique event.
