JOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – MORE than 1 000 entrepreneurs, small and medium business owners and Sage business partners from Africa and the Middle East will converge in South Africa next month for the Sage Summit Tour.
Sage, the market and technology leader for integrated accounting, payroll, and payment systems, is organising the summit.
Its partners and customers will gather in Johannesburg to learn about new technologies, digital transformation and the future of work.
Sage is expected to unveil new products, with its Chief Executive Officer, Stephen Kelly, using his keynote speech to announce new tools, technologies and partnerships.
The highlight will be the unveiling of Sage’s plans to use the Sage Foundation Enterprise Fund to change the lives of young people, women and military veterans around the region.
Anton van Heerden, Managing Director and Executive Vice President, Africa and Middle East at Sage, said during Sage Summit, Johannesburg becomes the hub for the region’s entrepreneurs.
He said this community was the most powerful driver of economic prosperity in the Africa and Middle East’s economy, creating more than two thirds of all jobs.
“We will celebrate these business builders, support them with the technology of tomorrow and seek to give them a voice on the world stage.”
The Sage Summit has elicited significant support.
AccTech Systems, Norming, and iVend Retail are gold sponsors.
Silver sponsors include Peresoft Software, Moditar, Technisoft, AutoSimply, Flowgear, OrgChart Hosting and Orchid Systems.
The summit runs from March 7-9.
