“The ecommerce landscape in Africa is evolving so fast that it’s almost impossible to keep up. I have found the ecommerce Africa conference and exhibition to be one of the best ways to be informed and meet those who are making major disruptive and innovative changes in all aspects of ecommerce,” MallForAfrica CEO Chris Folayan said in a statement yesterday.
In the same statement, Kinetic managing director Terry Southam — whose company organised the event — said although South African online sales have recently surpassed one percent of total retail sales, the country along with other African countries “require exponential growth to catch up”.
“The one percent percent problem is as much an intriguing opportunity as it is a daunting task, the potential for growth and rapid acceleration is real. Understanding where the acceleration opportunities lie not only from an online retail perspective, but in the payments, funding and fulfilment space is what MoneyAfrica 2018 is all about,” said Southam.
