The event was organized as a partnership between AfTLD, the Internet Society, and ICANN, and builds upon the Multi-Stakeholder Internet Governance program in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia that took place in March 2013, which sought to pave the way for the development of the DNS industry in Africa and to empower the African community for an increased accreditation of registrars from the continent.

DCA Registry Services, Senior Engineer Gideon Rop was among the panelists in the conference and he spoke on the Registrar Automation, and strategies of registry business in a competitive environment . He expounded on the strategic management tools for a successful registry, this included ways that the African registrars could automate their systems to attract more revenue and make the domain access to the registrants easier and affordable.
