Africa Games and Digital Applications Forum

Held Under the Patronage of
H.E. Dr. Amr Talaat,
Minister of Communications and Information Technology, Egypt

In 2018, Egyptian President H.E. Abdel Fattah El Sisi announced the launch of a government initiative to train 10,000 young Egyptians to become gaming and app developers within the next three years and support the establishment of 100 companies specialising in these sectors across Egypt and Africa.

To realise the President’s vision, we hosted the 1st edition of Africa Games and Digital Applications Forum (AGDA) from 31 October to 2 November 2019.   

AGDA 2019 was the biggest B2B platform for budding developers, publishers, technology providers, telecom operators, payment providers, localisation experts, content creators, designers and policymakers from all over Africa to engage and discuss the future of the industry.

The 2nd edition of AGDA Forum will take place from 17 to 19 February 2022 at the Egypt International Exhibition Center (EIEC);  co-located with Insomnia Egypt Gaming Festival. 

AGDA 2022 will once again aim to create a strategic platform for governmental and private stakeholders in Africa to support and leverage the game and app industry, in addition to providing the necessary expertise and comprehensive experience for developers and programmers in Egypt and Africa.

The Forum will serve to provide an opportunity for transferring knowledge and sharing experiences through various workshops in different programming areas and holding a number of technical activities, panel sessions and presentations provided by local and international companies, bringing together publishers, telecom operators, e-payment companies, content creators and game developers.
