Every year AFRINIC organises two public policy meetings.
The AFRINIC Public Policy Meetings attract industry professionals in a very open and cooperative environment. They provide a unique opportunity for all Internet-related organisations to gather and have their say in the Internet policies governing our region, through policy development and discussions, sharing of technical knowhow, tutorials and training.
The Africa Internet Summit 2013 will be held in Lusaka, Zambia, from 9 to 21 June. As is usually the case, the meeting will be hosted by (a) local organisation(s) interested not only in promoting access to the Internet in the country but also in policy development and regulation.
Local AFRINIC meeting hosts receive optimum exposure by being associated with such events and particularly in collaboration with AFRINIC, a key player in IP address distribution and Internet development in the region. The local hosts are publicly seen as making a contribution to the Internet community.
The local hosts also benefit largely as they are mentioned in most of AFRINIC communication material and their logo as well as name are present on site. This exposure can also be enhanced through a press conference held locally. We therefore encourage you to become our local host and contribute to Africa's progress and development.
As a key player in the Internet development and deployment in Africa, AFRINIC's meetings provide opportunities for organisations to reach other leaders of this dynamic and diverse industry. Other benefits include: -
- Increased visibility for your company
- Brand awareness
- Enhanced company image through corporate philanthropy
