Ontario is a place where you will find a highly educated and talented workforce, lower labour costs, and a broad ecosystem for innovation and R&D. World leaders in big data and cloud computing, data centres, microelectronics, digital media, security encryption, mobile gaming, mobile payments, wireless, telecom and networks and seven of the 10 largest tech companies in the world conduct R&D in Ontario. If Ontario’s ICT sector were its own country, its economy would be bigger than roughly half of the countries around the globe. With over 23,000 firms, nearly 315,000 workers, $41B of Ontario’s GDP, and $7.4B in exports, Ontario is the place to be.
AfricaCom is the largest and most influential Africa-focused technology and ICT event in the world and serves as a meeting place for those driving Africa’s digital transformation. It is made up of 500 brands who showcase their solutions across 3 days and attracts 13,000 visitors, and 500 exhibitors from over 140 countries.
Ontario companies interested in finding new partners and clients in South Africa will be showcasing their innovations at the Ontario pavilion.
