RAG Goes Roaming in Africa

In 2016 we pondered whether the Risk & Assurance Group (RAG) would be something we could take out of the UK.

We could and we did!

Our next step takes us even farther afield, in both geography and market dynamics, to Johannesburg at the MTN offices on Monday 4th and Tuesday 5th September.  We want you to come and join us!

I’m not going to overwhelm you with all the details of who and what in this article.  I’ll let you discover that for yourself. Instead I will tell you what’s on offer.

RAG isn’t like any conference you’ve heard of before.  We want to bring professionals and experts together from as many African telcos as we can.  We want you to come, to learn, to share and to enjoy all that RAG offers.  That’s the RAG mission.

Why should you come to RAG Johannesburg?  All the details to make your case are in the brochure which I encourage you to download and read, but I’ll summarise some of what the key points are.

Attend for free

The support from our sponsors means that you don’t have to pay anything to attend the conference if you’re from an operator.  We will even provide food and refreshments during the conference and at the social gatherings in the evenings.

Accommodation and transport

Whilst RAG can’t pay for accommodation, we have secured a very large discount for rooms at The Fairway Hotel, Spa and Golf Resort, where you can stay with other RAG attendees.

We’re also providing airport transfers to The Fairway Hotel and coach transport from the hotel to the conference venue (and back again), so you don’t have to worry about how to get there.

Be quick though, as the discounted rates are limited and only valid for the next few weeks!

Learn and share

The agenda is full of excellent topics and speakers who are willing to share their insights with you.  It’s also a chance to voice your opinions with experts and peers.  Take the information you learn from the conference back into your workplace and make a difference within your organisation.


Enjoy your chance to meet others within the industry and make new contacts and friends.  We will even be providing social and networking opportunities in the evenings after the conference where you can relax and unwind with complimentary food and refreshments provided.

In short, all you need to do is get there and arrange a place to stay.  RAG will take care of the rest for you.  Free to attend and free to learn.  Who else offers you such a premier event for free?

RAG: by the experts, for the experts.
