Mega Cities mean mega opportunities and Africa is where it is happening!
By 2050, seven out of 10 people will live in mega cities, with all the benefits and challenges of metro living. And the most significant urban planning challenges revolve around infrastructure and public works, especially access to clean drinking water, adequate sanitation, reliable electricity, public transportation and healthcare.

National governments, city leaders, urban planners and influential international businesses from organisations like MTN, Microsoft, City of Tshwane, SAP and SALGA meet in less than three weeks at Mega Cities Africa, South Africa's most future-focused urban planning and investment event.

This future thinking event has confirmed international speakers from KPMG in Canada, Hitachi in Japan, CSIR from Amsterdam, Remel Foudation from Egypt and the Mayor from Nairobi.

The Mega Cities Africa will take place on 29-30 May 2013 at the CSIR ICC, Tshwane.
