The African Peering and Interconnection Forum (AfPIF) 2023 will take place from 22 – 24 August 2023 in Accra, Ghana (venue TBD).
AfPIF is an annual conference that aims to promote the development of national and cross-border interconnection and offers the African technical community a unique opportunity to showcase interconnection challenges and opportunities. It focuses on Internet interconnection dynamics, content distribution, and transit obstacles at local and regional levels.
AfPIF aims to foster peering and networking opportunities by providing a forum where key players- infrastructure and service providers, IXPs, regulators, and policy makers can engage in a relaxed but business-like environment, sharing their experiences and learning from experts in the field.

The forum targets Chief Technology Officers (CTOs), peering coordinators and business development managers, Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and operators, telecommunications policy-makers and regulators, content providers, Internet Exchange Point (IXP) operators, infrastructure providers, data center managers, National Research and Education Networks (NRENs) as well as carriers and transit providers.
