The 5th edition of Mobile West Africa, which is scheduled to take place between 21 and 23 April in Lagos, Nigeria has garnered industry-wide support with credible sponsors such as MTN Nigeria, Airtel Nigeria, Etisalat Nigeria, Eskimi, VConnect, Gidi Mobile, Opera Software, MoboFree, Uber, MyMusic, Basebone, Mozilla, Jovago, Wiko Mobile and MTech Communications.
In a statement to TechMoran, All Amber Founder Matthew Dawes commented, “The amount of industry support we’ve receive is unprecedented and it’s an illustration of how far the event has developed since it started in 2011. To secure MTN, Airtel and Etisalat – as well as international players like Mozilla, Opera and Basebone – and then have the support of key local stakeholders such as Eskimi, Gidi Mobile, MTech and MoboFree reflects the will within the industry to keep it moving forwards.
Since 2011, Mobile West Africa has been regarded as the leading technology event in the region. Each year, the conference brings together the best brains in the mobile ecosystem and covers the evolution of mobile data, products and services in West Africa.
The event will include the leaders of mobile; mobile gaming; universal access; mobile entertainment; local success case studies; mobile apps; mobile content, users & consumption; and for the first time, a session on the debate surrounding the future of mobile money.
