Bigger & Better
The first-ever technology exhibition at Africa Forum was held in 2004. By the time the TechShare Africa name debuted in 2011 at the 5th Africa Forum in Ghana, the exhibition had grown exponentially and proven to be a popular draw among participants.
This year promises to be bigger and better than ever.
The multi-day exhibition will allow Africa Forum participants the chance to interact with manufacturers and suppliers of technology solutions for people who are blind, to learn more about service programs all over the world, and to participate in free technical workshops.
The theme of the 6th Africa Forum is “Beyond 2015: Delivering on the Agenda for Persons with Visual Impairment in Africa.” In that spirit, the 2nd TechShare Africa Exhibition will seek to demonstrate the power of science, technology and innovation in promoting a more inclusive and sustainable development agenda under the United Nations’ post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals.
Manufacturers and dealers of technology solutions for the blind are invited to participate in TechShare Africa. The exhibition provides a unique chance to showcase products and share information and resources with consumers and service providers.
