Location Virtual Event
Region EMEA

We have been monitoring the current situation in relation to the pandemic and the Government ‘s reactions across Africa and the rest of the world. By assessing the in-country guidelines, we have taken the decision to move the 4th Piafrica live conference dates to the 18 – 19 March 2021, allowing time for the spread of the virus to be contained, the reopening of the economies, and the strengthening of the confidence in traveling again.

This will also give us the opportunity to prepare a program that features regional and international speakers to attend and discuss the constraints, developments, and opportunities after this unprecedented time has passed, for 2 days of intense debate & high-level networking. We are also working on virtual activities for this edition; more details will be shared in the upcoming months.

We would like to assure you, we’re committed to following the measures imposed by the World Health Organisation and that of the country where we are working. We will make sure that social distancing is respected, complimentary masks are available and hand gel will be able at designated points at the events venues.
