GITEX GLOBAL, the world's mega tech showcase, is embarking on a new journey. Aim: to accelerate, collaborate, and explore new ventures in the world's rising tech continent. The inaugural GITEX AFRICA will take place from May 31 to June 2, 2023 in Marrakesh, Morocco, rallying the tech world's attention to the vast potential of the globe's youngest continent, and shaping the vision for a more connected, sustainable, inclusive, and tech-driven digital economy.

„We are honoured to organise this event in a continent which is seeing great dynamic, economic and social growth in many fields.“
Mohammed Drissi Melyani, general director
The landmark event is the first overseas venture for GITEX GLOBAL, the influential tech brand trusted by international tech executives. GITEX AFRICA is launched in partnership with the Digital Development Agency (ADD), a strategic public entity leading the Moroccan government's digital transformation agenda under the authority of the Moroccan Ministry of Digital Transition and Administration Reform. KAOUN International, the overseas events organising company of Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC), will lead the partnership. The "Go There" global campaign for GITEX AFRICA was officially launched mid-October. At the show's official announcement and signing ceremony, Mohammed Drissi Melyani, general director of the Digital Development Agency, said: "We are honoured to organise this event in a continent which is seeing great dynamic, economic and social growth in many fields. Morocco is playing a crucial role to assist and support the development of Africa under the leadership of His Majesty the King Mohammed VI and to link it economically to the rest of the world." African investment is rocketing: Analysts predict that the tech market is on track to scale from $115 billion to $712 billion by 2050, while growth in start-up funding is six times higher than anywhere else.
