The conference assessed the latest telecom growth strategies and partnership opportunities for infrastructure investment and ownership, mergers and acquisitions, raising finance, licence acquisitions and establishing profitable regional businesses.

It was the number one place to meet all the key financial decision makers and advisers active in Africa.

Meeting the surge in demand for telecom infrastructure investment

TMT Finance & Investment Africa 2014 took place at a critical time for Africa's telecom industry.

Following on from 2013, there was 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 2014 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.
