JOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – HUNDREDS of partners of German multinational software corporation,SAP, will converge in Sun City, South Africa in June for Saphila, the African SAP User Group (AFSUG) has announced.
Touted as “ICT’s don’t-miss conference of 2017”, Saphila 2017 creates a platform for SAP users to connect, create and collaborate, through sharing knowledge about innovation, implementation and service delivery.
Delegates attending gain access to a world of first-class contacts and customers, including CIOs, CEOs, management level IT users, SAP end users, partners and consultants, and are guaranteed to get up close and personal with nearly 1 000 potential customers and future business partners.
“AFSUG’s and SAP’s commitment to rethink, reassess and reimagine business for the digital economy, drives their search for what is possible,” says Reg Barry, AFSUG board member and Saphila 2017 chairman.
He says AFSUG chose Sun City as the venue as it has recently completed a rebuild and refurbishment project to the value of R1 billion.
“With an all-new super-sophisticated design and décor that begins at the front door, delegates will experience the very latest in world-class conferencing throughout the many new rooms and amenities that enhance the revamped and reimagined venue. The perfect space to reimagine the way to do business,” Barry adds.
Highlights this year will be keynote presentations and the dedicated space to discover new products and take part in solution demonstrations by both sponsors and exhibitors.
The focus remains on quality content that encourages a positive shift in business in order to add economic value.
“Networking with peers forms part of this too, which is why we have created numerous breakout sessions for CXOs, SAP COE managers, SAP users, technical specialist and business representatives to get together and discuss issues and ideas,” says Barry.
The African SAP User Group (AFSUG) provides a forum for SAP customers to share information and experiences, accelerate implementation of successful business solutions and influence SAP Africa and SAP Aktiengesellschaft’s (AG) local and global directions.
Saphila 2017 is set for June 5 and 6.
