Please let us know as soon as possible as the calendar fills up very quickly.
For inspiration, have a look at the agenda from our first edition, the Lake Victoria Challenge. More than 280 policymakers, drone manufacturers and operators, designers, entrepreneurs, local stakeholders and global thought leaders came together from 29-31 October 2018 in Mwanza, Tanzania for a successful convening and flying competition cycle.

LVC Year Zero was held October 29-31, 2018
