[eccr] The Sixth Annual African Computing & Telecommunications Summit

Wed Aug 25 14:34:33 GMT 2004

The Sixth Annual African Computing &
Telecommunications Summit

Mauritius , 7-9 September, 2004

"Building Partnerships to Mainstream Africa's ICT

AITEC has been invited by the Act ICT Industry
Alliance of Mauritius to hold
the sixth annual ACT Summit in Mauritius due to the
attendance it will
attract from ICT professionals and managers from
throughout Africa, as well
as other international participation, thus promoting
the country's position
as a supplier of ICT services and expertise.

The theme of the Summit will be  "Developing
Partnerships to Mainstream
Africa's ICT Industry."

Welcoming AITEC's decision to hold the Summit in
Maurtius, Colin Taylor,
Chairman of the Act ICT Industry Alliance, called on
industry counterparts
across Africa to use the Summit as an opportunity to
pool knowledge and
experience to promote the continent on the
international stage.  "Although
some of us may land up competing for the same
outsourcing work, the
potential market is huge and expanding. We will all
benefit from increased
skills levels across the region, as well as improved
perceptions of the
continent's ICT capacity. I'm confident that companies
attending ACT 2004
will find that co-operation and alliances, rather than
competition, will be
the order of the day."

The following will be the key streams within the

Business Process Outsourcing Forum
The African Open Source Forum, in association with the
Free & Open Source
Software Foundation for Africa eGovernment Forum in
association with the UN

been held in the UK, South Africa, Kenya and Nigeria
in previous years. Over
2,000 African ICT professionals, managers, resellers,
innovators and
policy-makers have benefited from the Summit's
intensive knowledge-sharing

All delegates will have use of the free service
provided by the Partnering
Hub to arrange meetings with potential clients,
partners and suppliers. All
Summit participants will be asked to provide their
local mobile numbers for
ease of communication and to arrange meetings. The
Partnering Hub will act
as a vital meeting place where delegates can make
maximum use of the
networking opportunities provided by ACT.

The ACT Exhibition
The Summit will include a high-quality
business-to-business exhibition,
enabling local and international ICT manufacturers,
suppliers, service
providers and operators to promote their products and
services to the ACT
participants, most of whom are high-volume purchasers.
In addition to the
exhibition stands, syndicate rooms are available to
rent as display, meeting
and hospitality areas for the duration of the event.
