oTeKbits – A mixture of 160 senior industry practitioners and entrepreneurs will gather later this week at the Lagos Oriental Hotel in Nigeria to discuss the state of the mobile ecosystem in West Africa at the second annual Mobile Web West Africa conference. The event has been organised by UK-based All Amber, the leading company specialising in delivering interactive, discussion-based events specifically aimed at high level strategists.
Mobile Web West Africa 2012 features a best-in-class speaker faculty of industry leaders with experts from BlackBerry, Spinlet, MXit and InMobi to deliver key addresses at this crucial event.
Nigeria recently overtook South Africa to become the continent’s largest mobile market with over 90 million subscribers, and mobile penetration in Nigeria is predicted to reach 82% by 2015. Mobile internet browsing is now larger than desktop browsing in Nigeria, with 54% of all internet content being accessed from mobile. The importance of mobile web, applications and content in West Africa is undisputed and the crucial discussions at Mobile Web West Africa will outline the potential that exists in the development of the mobile ecosystem.
Across the continent the mobile web and applications opportunity continues to have a profound effect on all echelons of society. That’s why developing a thriving industry and supporting the growth of the developer ecosystem, which are the foundations behind the idea of Mobile Web West Africa, is so essential. Bringing Mobile Web West Africa back to Lagos, arguably the most exciting city on the continent in terms of mobile and potential, is fantastic. – Matthew Dawes, Managing Director of All Amber
