The Government and Tech (GAT) Summit is the biggest gathering of industry regulators and tech innovators across Africa.

Africa’s biggest engagement roundtable for African leaders and innovators.

The summit will host about 20 notable panel session speakers, over 1500 delegates from across Africa, over 200 participating organizations, and over 100 executives of top organizations in one place at the same time.

GAT was borne out of the need to ease the recurring friction between innovators and government, facilitating meaningful and constructive engagement instead. The ultimate goal is to ensure that the people of Africa and indeed the regulators and the regulated, derive the utmost benefits of innovation.

GAT Summit is jointly organized by Technext– one of Africa’s leading tech-driven media platforms and Ripples Nigeria– African multi-award-winning multimedia online news platform.

The partnership raises the prospects for the GAT Summit as both platforms boast a track record of excellence not only in media innovation but in large-scale event creation and management.
