The first edition of Africabeta took over Lagos on the evening of Saturday Oct 3rd. Organized by TechCabal, the event was quite the spectacle as stakeholders in the African tech scene, graced the event looking brilliant and beautiful, eager to learn, ready to teach, ready to network. There were insightful exposes by experts, thrilled winners in the Raffle draw and of course, lots and lots of pictures. We just had to narrow it down to our favorites.
Here you go: check out some of the best photos from the Africabeta conference!
