Kenya will today (Tuesday) afternoon host a curtain-raiser meeting for a digital and Internet marketing event that is to be held later in June.
The Kenyatta International Conference Centre-held event is projected to host key technology experts across East Africa.
According to the firm spearheading the event, Afri-Tech Group, Government representatives, corporate leaders and opinion shapers will grace the meeting.
The focus of this landmark summit will be on creating a collaborative platform for both the experts and the African business owners.
With deepening Internet penetration in the continent, the summit is expected to provide an opportunity to investors in exploiting new marketing frontiers.
"The preparation for the meeting is complete. Key technology gurus have confirmed their participation. Certainly, it is a big chance for Africa to learn from developed economies," said Bernard Sanganza, the chief executive officer of Afri-Tech Group, a global digital and Internet marketing firm.
The four-day exhibition and "highly engaging" conference will be held at the Kenyatta International Conference Centre (KICC) and will provide the attendees with a mass of new knowledge and new contacts.
