But amongst the big names there are a lot of smaller companies, as well as start-ups that are seeing Africa as a large and growing market, within the converging telecoms, media & ICT sectors. So expect all sizes of exhibition stands, from the massive custom built right down to the small emerging companies in their shell scheme booths.
