GSMA Mobile 360 – Africa, the largest GSMA-run event in Africa will be held in Rwanda to discuss the Rise of the Digital Citizen.

The event takes place 16-18, July 2019 in Kigali, Rwanda at the Kigali Convention Centre.

Mobile 360 – Africa welcomes an array of senior industry leaders from the mobile ecosystem spanning all of sub-Saharan Africa.

In 2018, GSMA Mobile 360 – Africa welcomed over 840 attendees (58% senior leaders) from 56 countries to celebrate the digital successes in Africa.

Technology is driving change in Africa and the telecom sector is set to thrive.

GSMA Intelligence has shown that since 2014 4G has reached an extra 200 million people, 40 million new social media accounts, and 30,000 active mobile applications developed locally.

Now, with the demands of highly influential Millennial and Generation Z consumers, the African Union is aiming to bring the continent on par with the rest of the world as an information society.

As tech and entrepreneurship gathers speed across the region, a new age is fast emerging in Africa: the age of the digital citizen.

As the number of active users and investment continues to grow, what do citizens of the future want? In 2018, the conference focused on ‘who was leading the digital revolution’, but in 2019, participants will look at who benefits from the digital revolution. What impact will digital have on the job market, content creation, commercial trends, and what are the key stepping-stones for creating a digital society that is inclusive and secure for the future?
