PMI Africa Conference Rebrands to PMI Global Summit Series | Africa, Reflecting the Continent’s Ascendant Role in Global Business

The Project Management Institute (PMI), the leading authority in project management dedicated to advancing the profession and enhancing project success, has announced the rebranding of its flagship PMI Africa Conference to PMI Global Summit Series | Africa. This strategic refresh aligns Africa’s premier gathering of project professionals with the esteemed PMI Global Summit, ensuring a cohesive and elevated experience that upholds the high standards and interactive environment characteristic of major PMI events.

Rwanda, often referred to as the jewel of Africa, will host the inaugural PMI Global Summit Series | Africa at the Kigali Convention Centre from November 18th to 20th, 2024. Last year's event, held in Nairobi, Kenya, drew over 700 project professionals from across Africa and around the globe.

Now in its ninth year, this flagship event has consistently brought together project managers from diverse backgrounds to share critical insights and foster enhanced collaboration. The conference serves as a dynamic platform for the exchange of knowledge and best practices in project management.

As PMI Global Summit Series | Africa, the event will continue its tradition of advancing the field of project management. It will provide an environment that encourages networking, dialogue, and partnership, playing a pivotal role in shaping the careers of project managers and raising the standards of project execution across the continent.

George Asamani, Managing Director, PMI, Sub-Saharan Africa, emphasised the strategic shift, stating, "Africa is not just participating in global business; it is shaping its future.  The endorsement of Africa's potential at Davos and the inclusion of Egypt and Ethiopia in the BRICS group signal Africa's rising prominence and increasingly influential role on the international stage."
"This evolving economic and political landscape is an ideal scenario to catalyse investment in Africa. The rebranding of our flagship event is to recognise the continent's emerging role as the hub of project management expertise and innovation."
This is evident from the profile of delegates who attend the conference. Last year, several delegates who came to Kenya were from Eastern Europe. 
The Summit will play host to PMI members, chapter volunteers, project managers, ATPs, and the youth. Additionally, the Summit will feature a diverse lineup of thought leaders and international and African speakers who will delve into the latest trends in AI, digital transformation, and sustainability and their integration into project management.
"The Summit is designed to be the nexus for both current and aspiring project managers to gain insights into the latest trends and strategies in project management," Asamani added. "Attendees will have the unique opportunity to learn from the best, share their experiences, and challenge the status quo, thereby driving innovation in their projects and organisations. We empower attendees with the necessary skills and knowledge to meet the evolving needs of business.” 

PMI is at the forefront of innovation in project management by connecting and building global communities of practice, capacity, and thought leadership. 

"As project management continues to be recognised as a critical skill in achieving strategic objectives, the Summit offers a rare opportunity to enhance one's capabilities in managing complex projects," Asamani concluded. 
The lineup of speakers, registration details, and early bird offers will be announced soon, promising an exciting and informative programme for all attendees. Organisations are invited to partner with PMI to shape the future of project management by sponsoring the PMI Global Summit Series | Africa. This is a unique opportunity to showcase brands to a dedicated audience of professionals eager for solutions that can drive their projects to success.
