The 5th annual Ocean Innovation Africa Summit will take place in Cape Town from the 20th to the 22nd of February 2024. The event, hosted at The Avenue Conference and Events Centre, V&A Waterfront, promises to be "a dynamic platform for engagement, collaboration, and inspiration all in the ocean economy."
The summit will include a dynamic mix of workshops, tours and site visits, ocean experts, ocean stories, networking sessions, and a startup pitch competition.
Organizers seek to inspire entrepreneurs and private investors and promote partnerships for a sustainable and equitable ocean economy from all over the world.
Although the strong focus remains within the context of the African Blue Economy, the event will expect delegates from all over the world to attend.
The event will gather authorities, representatives from ocean industries, scientists, researchers, foundations, NGOs, private impact investors, and ocean-impact entrepreneurs.
Together these will highlight "the global interest in Africa’s untapped ocean potential."
