Dear Esteemed Colleagues and Innovators,

It is with great excitement and anticipation that we extend our invitation to you for the prestigious 41st IASP World Conference, scheduled from 24-27 September 2024. This auspicious event is set to occur in the year that the vibrant and dynamic Nairobi City, Kenya, has been voted by Lonely Planet as the “Best City to Visit in 2024.”

IASP2024 will be hosted at the Kenya International Convention Center (KICC), nestled in the heart of Nairobi’s thriving capital of Kenya. Our nation has long been recognized as a cradle of innovation, the veritable startup hub of Africa, where the seeds of innovation, creativity, and progress sprout and flourish.

Kenya’s unwavering commitment to Research, Science, Technology, and Innovation is not only anchored by the center of the Silicon Savannah also known as Konza Technopolis but also deeply ingrained in the spirit of our people. Here, we cultivate a flourishing ecosystem that nurtures research, fosters innovation-driven entrepreneurship, and celebrates diversity.

The 2024 IASP World Conference, under the theme “Demographics, Entrepreneurship, and Technology: Defining the Frontiers of Future Economies,” promises to be an extraordinary gathering, uniting global leaders in science parks, areas of innovation, and organizations dedicated to advancing research, innovation, and entrepreneurship.

The gathering will provide an environment to celebrate our collective achievements while exploring the forces shaping our world in the era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

As you engage in this enriching experience, you will also have the privilege of experiencing the warm hospitality of Magical Kenya, immersing yourself in Kenya’s urban and cultural diversity, all while being in close proximity to Nairobi National Park, nestled right in the heart of our bustling capital. Here, you can witness the breathtaking wildlife and immerse yourself in the rich tapestry of our nation’s cultures while networking with the global best.

Once again, on behalf of the host country, Konza Technopolis Board, our dedicated staff, and our entire nation, we extend a heartfelt welcome to IASP Nairobi. We eagerly anticipate your arrival in September 2024, as we embark on a journey of knowledge, innovation, and collaboration.
