About the Africa Internet Summit
The Africa Internet Summit (AIS) is an annual, regional, multi-stakeholder ICT conference. It is the pinnacle educational and business ICT event in Africa where key players in the Internet industry can interact with the global Internet community. Launched in The Gambia in 2012, the Summit consists of seminars, workshops, tutorials, conference sessions, birds-of-a-feather (BOFs), and other forums for sharing ICT knowledge within the African region. AIS'22 will take place from 30th May-3rd June 2022 and will be hosted in Mauritius.
The Africa Internet Summit 2022 (AIS'22) is jointly organized by the Africa Network Information Centre (AFRINIC) in collaboration with the African Network Operators Group (AfNOG).
Over the past two years, the meeting has been taking place online, however, AIS'22 will take a Hybrid format. Here, the focus is on seamless collaboration and on content sharing both in-room and online making the meetings as intuitive and straightforward as face-to-face meetings. Remote delegates will join the meeting via Meetecho while In-person /onsite delegates will sit together in a dedicated meeting venue. The Summit will abide by the COVID-19 protocols prevailing in Mauritius. At the moment, we are limited to having a maximum of 50 delegates onsite but we hope for a further pax increase from the Mauritian Authorities in March 2022, and we shall issue further communication complete with the meeting venue.
