Johannesburg is continuing to build its reputation as the business capital of Africa, following the announcement that the African Bureau of Conventions has been formed a new association, which will be launched at the international convention, “Competitive Advantage Through Future Trends”.
Myles Hopkins, Chairman of the Board of the Foresight Network said: “We are very pleased and excited to announce that Johannesburg will be hosting the thought leaders in future trends at a conference to be held in late 2011 or early 2012.
“This is a Foresight Network initiative and as the Chairman of the Board of the Foresight Network which consists of 2 800 futurists from all over the world, I can guarantee that we will be able to present a conference that will make a significant and lasting impression on all attendees.
“It is imperative that any organisation, whether large or small, whether from the public sector or private sector, gets to grips with the opportunities and threats that the future will present. This conference is therefore an absolute must for any leader that wants to ensure that their organisation enjoys a fruitful and sustainable future.
We are honoured to have Shaping Tomorrow, TechCast, and Africa Bureau of Conventions as supporters of this ground-breaking event.”
The African Bureau of Conventions stated that this high profile event has already attracted enormous interest both nationally and internationally. The event will become an annual convention, attracting international key note speakers, that is a first not only for South Africa, but also for Africa.
