JOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – MORE than 400 senior executive in the telecommunications industry are scheduled to converge at the annual Capacity Africa scheduled for Tanzania in September.

Scheduled for the capital city of Dar es Salaam, the event is slated for September 8 and 9.

The executives from more than 65 countries will make the most of the entire African telecoms ecosystem being represented, all looking to secure new deals in the region’s lucrative telecoms market.

Capacity Africa comes on the back of the continent’s telecoms industry forming a vital component to economic growth, affecting all aspects of the business and social sphere.

Dramatic expansion in the telecoms sector has taken place over the past five years, with a 72 penetration on average in mobile subscriptions across the continent.

Due to the size and scale of investment opportunities in African telecoms, wholesale telecoms carriers from across the globe meet annually at Capacity Africa, the largest pan-African wholesale conference to network, develop business and hear industry leaders deliver future commercial strategy.

Mike Last, Director, Marketing and International Business Development, WIOCC, said Capacity Africa was the best networking event for the African wholesale telecoms industry.

“It attracts a very strong set of African and international carriers and creates a great environment for doing business,” said Last.
