Testimonials on IOTFA 2017:
Skhumbuzo Mhlongo (BCX): What I liked mostly was to interact with some of the industry leaders and to look at some of the drivers of technology’s adoption. The whole session of interacting with other operators was actually quite refreshing because some of it gave you a view to where this thing is going. 

Jula Wedler (Altech): It was an excellent event, it was very focused so the kind of customers we got and the discussions that we had was so focused, there was not much in the way of time wasting. I wouldn’t say it was quantity but it was quality. It was very beneficial for us and definitely money well spent.

Sean Laval (Comsol Networks): We found the event very valuable. The quality of the speakers was very good, the panels were good. We also found that we engaged with the right customer base and we look forward to IoT Forum Africa 2018.
