The conference brings together the most important leadership from telecoms, finance, government and advisory active across Africa to assess the latest opportunities for investment and partnership.

Following a sharp increase in demand in 2014 the 2015 event has been moved to the larger venue at the Millennium Hotel Mayfair.

Meeting the surge in demand for telecom infrastructure investment

TMT Finance & Investment Africa 2015 takes place at a critical time for Africa's telecom industry.

There is enormous demand for new telecoms infrastructure and services across the continent and many billions of dollars of investment and financing is required. However restructuring, consolidation and realignment of business models and portfolios is also essential to raise the investment capital.

Our international network of industry and finance professionals are predicting that 2015 will be a pivotal year for deals.

The next wave of joint ventures, partnerships, mergers, acquisitions and new investments will decide the shape of the industry across Africa for the next decade.
