It is the place where the most innovative companies from African countries get a platform to launch their products and announce to Africa and the world what they have developed.
This year’s DEMO Africa Conference will be hosted by the City of Johanesburg in partnership with South Africa’s Department of Science and Technology and the LIONS partners.
