Considering developments with the global COVID-19 pandemic and uncertainties caused by new air travel restrictions, the AfriLabs Board has decided to move this year’s Annual Gathering to Nigeria.

“For reasons beyond our control, we are unable to hold the AfriLabs Annual Gathering in Marrakech as originally planned. To avoid the long process of opening up a bid for a new host country at this late time, the 2021 AfriLabs Annual Gathering will be hosted in Abuja, Nigeria where our Secretariat is situated. The AfriLabs Board and Community are grateful for all the support by Douar Tech, our Moroccan member hub that has worked diligently since 2020 to host this event and we look forward to bringing the Annual Gathering to Morocco at another time.” The AfriLabs board stated after their meeting in Dakar.

The 2021 AfriLabs Annual Gathering is an important edition as it coincides with AfriLabs 10th year anniversary and provides an opportunity to spotlight the growth and evolvement of the African Innovation Ecosystem.
