AfriLabs’ Annual Gathering 2024: Uniting Innovation in the Heart of Cape Town

Cape Town, South Africa – AfriLabs is proud to announce the much-anticipated Annual Gathering 2024, set to take place from the 5th – 8th of November at Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC). Africa has long been a powerhouse of innovation, yet the disconnect among its ingenious thinkers has hindered the full potential of collaborative progress. Recognizing the imperative to bridge this gap under the theme of “Uniting Innovation,” the Annual Gathering 2024 embarks on a mission by creating a central nexus where African innovators, policy makers, investors, startups and thought leaders from all corners of the world can converge and amplify the impact of their ideas.


This year’s event promises to be an exhilarating celebration bringing together the brightest minds, dynamic speakers, and visionaries from across the African continent. The gathering serves as a catalyst for inspiring and presenting diverse innovations, and innovation enablers, that have the potential to make a positive impact on a global scale. Through keynote speeches, panel discussions, workshops, and networking, participants nurture new ideas and existing solutions, partnerships and aspirations for sustainable interventions. 

The Annual Gathering 2024 will feature a stellar lineup of attendees, including sitting and former heads of states & ministers, pan-African government officials, and representatives from pan-African bodies. The stage will be graced by distinguished speakers and moderators, supported by a team of translators to ensure a seamless exchange of ideas. Among the attendees are CEOs, start-up innovators, and captains of innovation. Exhibitors will showcase cutting-edge innovations, complimented by the infusion of creative talents, adding an artistic flair to the gathering and spearheading conversations that highlight the significant economic impact of the creative sector, which contributes billions of dollars to the African economy. A community of investors with a combined portfolio of over 300 million U.S dollars will be on the lookout for opportunities, making this a prime networking hub for those at the forefront of Africa’s innovation landscape.

“Uniting Innovation is not just a theme; It’s a mission for AfriLabs. Our Annual Gathering 2024 embodies the spirit of unity and innovation. Together, we can break barriers and pave the way for a future where African ingenuity knows no limits in solving global challenges and in creating a more prosperous and sustainable future. ”  said Anna Ekeledo, Executive Director at AfriLabs.
