Mondays come with the ‘energy’ to set and smash goals. What goals do you want to achieve this week? We believe you should add attending tech events this week to the list.

Why is it important to attend these events? Tech helps to improve processes and saves time and effort across different areas of our lives. So, it’s just as important to list these events and draw you closer to the solutions they inspire and make happen.

These are the tech events happening around us this week: June 6 – June 11, 2022.

Digital Pay Expo

Digital PayExpo is a conference in the digital payments space in Africa. Every year, hundreds of C-Suite executives, bankers, investors, start-ups, policy-makers, and development professionals converge to discuss and explore innovative solutions to emerging themes in the financial inclusion space.

For over a decade now, the Digital Pay Expo event has become the leading payment industry platform to showcase innovation and get stakeholders to talk about industry trends.

The conference is scheduled to hold in Lagos for 2 days (9th-10th of June) with the theme “Defi Africa: Beyond Hype, Understanding Use Cases For The Continent”. 

The focus of this edition of the Digital Pay Expo is Decentralised Finance, which has become a necessary discussion at this time with the explosion of digital payment platforms.
