About the 2020 Africa Drone Forum
The 2020 African Drone Forum comprises a Symposium, Expo and Flying Competitions, which will take place in Rwanda. The Symposium and Expo will be taking place in Kigali from February 5 to 7, 2020. Competitive flights will commence on February 8, 2020.
The first iteration of event – named the Lake Victoria Challenge (LVC) was held at Lake Victoria in Mwanza, Tanzania in October 2018. It posed the question: “What would happen if Africa could unlock the lower skies as a resource for mobility?”
The inaugural event explored the emerging transportation technologies that are capable of overcoming Africa’s infrastructure deficit and addressing the continent’s infrastructure, public health and mobility challenges with a visionary, safe and scalable solution.
Now, Rwanda is set to take the project a step further, advancing emerging technologies to address challenges both new and perennial.
