What we did.

The following services were provided to complete this project.


Methys created designs mock-ups of the 2018 conference website and portal. These designs provided a representation of the final look and feel of the project before development started. Designs were created as a functional online image with a solid strategy in place to ensure it gets the attention the conference deserves.


The website was developed on a Wordpress platform using a custom-built AfricArena 2018 theme. The challenges for contestants and startup entries were given their own linked state-of-the-art platform developed in Laravel.

Quality Assurance

A rigorous quality assurance process was fully integrated in the development process to ensure a website and portal successful delivery.


On completion of the project the website deployed to the server.
