Digitally minded corporate sponsors, TelOne, Telecel, GTeL, and DSTV, are participating as sponsors in order to help the Digital Future platform to enrich local industries through seminars and specialised training. These corporate sponsors all represent brands that are highly visible, well-established and respected in Zimbabwe, with digital services and platforms that are central to their brands.

TelOne offers fast, reliable and affordable telecommunication and multimedia services, and recently launched the TelOne Data Centre and Cloud Solutions- allowing them to host huge amounts of data as well as migrate billing to a prepaid system. The TelOne data centre is state-of- the-art, helping TelOne to transform into a fixed mobile converged company with emphasis on broadband, cloud and digital services.


Telecel, fresh out of relaunching their Mega Bonus promotion at ZITF in Bulawayo, are committed to providing their customers with high quality communication services, whether data, calling or SMS, but at affordable costs.

GTeL’s mission is to connect everyone through world class, affordable, innovative and accessible products and services, and DSTV is Africa’s top entertainment and television destination.

These sponsors all represent the advent of digital, both locally and internationally.

At Digital Future 2017, attendees will learn more about the impact of digital on traditional industries such as broadcasting, publishing, tourism and transport, helping attendees to come away with an understanding of how these industries can actually harness digital in order to compete and stay relevant.

International speakers from eminent organisations such as Google and MNet will give insights to help brands track the performance of their digital activities, and to understand how to optimise digital spend and maximise return on investment. With online reputation management a crucial arena determining every brand’s success, attendees will learn the key elements of crisis management. There will also be a reputation management training session to teach brands how to manage this paramount area.

Digital Future 2017 will be held at Sango Conference centre, with tickets and information available at Like and Follow Digital Future on Facebook and Twitter: @DigitalFutureZW, and follow the conversation on the hashtag #DF2017.
