Our location

CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA: Set against the scenic backdrop of Table Mountain, Cape Town has easy access to beaches, scenic hikes, winelands, and a buzzing culture. The conference itself is held at the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, a beautiful and serene setting.


With a mixture of African and international speakers, each year we bring a diversity of experience and perspective to the stage. Meet the engineers and business leaders who have shared their war stories at previous events.
