• Africa Games Week

    The City of Cape Town is once again the host city sponsor for Africa Games Week. Cape Town is a modern, multicultural city surrounded by nature in all its forms. From Table Mountain, one of the New 7 Wonders of the world, exquisite beaches, nature reserves and winelands, to award-winning restaurants, vineyards, museums, and cultural and adventure experiences to meet any taste. One of the many benefits of hosting events in Cape Town is the endless ways to fill any spare time delegates may have, while showing off the Mother City’s world-class hospitality.


    Cape Town is rapidly gaining a reputation as one of Africa’s biggest digitech and new media hubs.

    In addition to being one of the world’s most desirable locations for film, TV and commercial production, Cape Town is increasingly being recognised as Africa’s game development hub with more than half of South Africa’s game development studios being based in the Mother City.

    Gaming is fast becoming one of the most important and innovative sectors in technology.

    It is an area that cuts across various industries, creating solutions in entertainment and education, and has the potential for investment and major job creation opportunities.

    As the City of Cape Town, our goal is to provide more support to this industry, including putting in place infrastructure and other mechanisms that enable it to thrive.

    Our support for events such as Africa Games Week is aimed at ensuring that game developers, especially the youth, have platforms to display their work while also meeting industry experts who can elevate their skills.

    The City of Cape Town is proud to support and host Africa Game Week.

    We hope that you will enjoy the experience and have the opportunity to learn from some of the best in the game development space.

    Outside of the virtual world of gaming, we hope you will also enjoy your stay in our beautiful city.
