Digital Africa Conference and Exhibition is Africa’s premier consumer technology show which holds annually. It provides the perfect platform to showcase your brand and enhance your reputation. It presents to its participants a major opportunity for unrivalled networking and privileged access to strategic partners, investors and potential buyers.

The 2018 edition of the conference will focus on  the great achievements in Science and Technology of ancient Africa as well as chart a course for the future. Africa has the world’s oldest record of human technological achievement, unfortunately, only a few are aware of these accomplishments, as the history of Africa, beyond ancient Egypt, is seldom publicized.

Sadly, the vast majority of discussions on the origins of science include only the Greeks, Romans and other whites. But in fact most of their discoveries came thousands of years after African developments. While the remarkable black civilization in Egypt remains alluring, there was sophistication and impressive inventions throughout ancient sub-Saharan Africa as well.

For instance, many treatments we use today were employed by several ancient peoples throughout Africa. Before the European invasion of Africa, medicine in what is now Egypt, Nigeria and South Africa, to name just a few places, was more advanced than medicine in Europe.

Africans come from ancient, rich and elaborate cultures that created a wealth of technologies in many areas therefore it is wrong to assume that technologies have to be imported. We are born with the generic memory that gives us the ability of the great innovations of our ancestors.
