Annual Gathering 2017

The AfriLabs Annual Gathering annually focuses on trending tech hub practices, local innovators and innovative solutions to relevant African issues. In order to key into the African integration agenda, the regional development or political organization at the hosting country will be fully involved.The Annual Gathering provides a unique opportunity for members and other stakeholders to convene, learn the latest hub insights, and build partnerships between and with hubs.

This year, the AfriLabs Annual Gathering and the Hivos Co-working Summit was a joint event hosted by The District that provided opportunities for the different members of both networks to exchange knowledge, network, build collaborative relationships and share resources. The conference took place from the 18th – 20th of 2017 in Cairo, Egypt and was themed ‘Future of African Cities: Innovation, Spaces and Collaboration’.
