After months of planning, we are barely a week away from PIVOT East 2013, East Africa's premier mobile start-ups competition and conference! This year’s event is the first ever that will be held in Kampala after the last two consecutive years in Nairobi. Owing to this, we felt it would be best to share a full checklist of things you need to consider if you plan to attend. Based on all the information we have to date, here is the PIVOT East 2013 travel checklist:
PIVOT East will be held at the Rwenzori Ballroom of the Sheraton Kampala on the 25th and 26th June 2013. The full programme for the conference and competition can be found here.
If you plan to attend PIVOT East 2013, the first and most important thing is that you need to buy your ticket(s). Tickets are being sold online via credit card and mobile money (Kenya and Uganda only) for US$ 100.00. You can buy your ticket(s) online here. If you are unable to buy tickets online for any reason, we recommend that you buy them on-site at PIVOT East in cash (USD).
You can find more detailed information about the event, including flight and accommodation details, on the Pivot East website.
For those of you who will be in Nairobi but still want to keep up with what's going on, we'll be livestreaming the event at the iHub. Spaces are limited, so you need to register herebefore Friday 21st June. Familiarize yourself with the 25 finalists in 5 different categories, and join us on the 25th & 26th to root for your favourite candidate as well as to find out what's happening in the East Africa start-up scene.
