ID4Africa rescheduled for October 28 to 30 to ensure full inclusive participation
ID4Africa 2020 has been postponed to October 28 to 30, in order to ensure “a healthy, safe, and highly successful event with inclusive participation by all the stakeholders from around the world,” according to an official announcement from the organizers.
The annual event, the largest identity event in the Global South each year, was planned for June 2 to 4, but is being delayed due to coronavirus concerns and the limitations they have imposed on international travel and large gatherings. It will still be held at the Palais des Congrès at Mövenpick Hotel Mansour Eddahbi in Marrakesh, Morocco.
“The new date will allow us to deliver the quality and intensity that the identity community has gotten accustomed to from our prior events, without compromise or gaps due to limitations on participation,” explains ID4Africa Executive Chairman Dr. Joseph J. Atick in the announcement.
The conference theme and thematic tracks are not expected to change, though the program will be refined and updated as projects around the continent continue, to maintain the timeliness of all content.
Atick thanks partners, speakers, sponsors, exhibitors and delegates for their “solidarity with the Movement,” as well as authorities in Morocco and management at the conference venue for their collaboration and cooperation.
Biometric Update will be on location in Marrakesh in October to cover the annual meeting as ID4Africa Official Journalist for the fifth year.
