Many tech companies are now holding events after months of a forced hiatus following issues associated with the pandemic. Locally, such events go a long way in keeping the vibrancy of the tech ecosystem, and that comes with many benefits such as keeping up with the latest trends, what tech companies and tech startups have in store for the country and other markets, and much more.

Among key shows that are held annually include the dx100 fair, among others such as Connected Kenya. Connected Kenya has since been concluded and brought to life programs such as the Digital Masterplan for Kenya, meaning that dx5, is the only major publisher that is yet to end the year with its dx100 Awards show, which will be held in Diani from 23rd to 25th November.

Now in its 14th year, the event will be held under the theme Catalysing C-Suite Engagement in Digital Transformation.

Some of the companies that have been listed to take part in the conference include Weber Wentzel (South Africa), Smart Africa (Rwanda), Infobip (Project for Zenith Bank) (Nigeria), Jelurida Africa (Nigeria), Thochima Enterprises Ltd (Zambia), Inq Digital (Mauritius), Platino Group (Egypt) and Billionaire Fund (Uganda). These are from outside Kenya because the event rounds up key companies from all over Africa. You can find out more about other participants using this link.

Now, before the event starts, dx5 has revealed tech leaders who will grace the conference in less than ten days. They include Phyllis Migwi, Country General Manager, Microsoft, CIO of the Year 2018 and Top 40 Under 40 2022 alumnus; George Njuguna, Director, Information Technology at Safaricom Plc; Catherine Muraga Managing Director, Microsoft Africa Development Centre; Dan Kwach, Managing Director East Africa Region, Africa Data Centres; and Nawaz Bagha Territory Lead, VMware. 

The rest are Dennis Volemi Group CIO, Equity Bank; and Moses Okundi Chief Technology Officer, Absa Bank Kenya.

Key sponsors of this year’s dx100 event include Microsoft, cloud computing, and virtualization technology company VMware in partnership with DTE and global software company RedHat.

The event will feature keynote presentations, influencer panel discussions, case studies, and a gala dinner on the beach where the winners will be feted.

“We are proud to announce this exciting lineup of speakers who will be participating at this year’s Digital Transformation (dx100) Symposium & Awards. The event will feature the best of the best in the tech space to show that Africa has the talent and brains to move the continent into the digital realm. The digital transformation conversation is a timely one for Africa, and we are grateful that our speakers and sponsors have seen the value in these discussions,” dx5 Chairman Harry Hare said.
