The Largest Dedicated Digital Event in the Region
Join us next year at NigeriaCom 2014!
After two days of engaging discussions and networking, the 4th annual NigeriaCom conference and exhibition closed in Lagos, Nigeria on the 18th of September 2013.
Day one of NigeriaCom focused on the foundations of telecommunications, networks, connectivity and quality of service whilst day two took a close look at added services which operators need to capitalise on by working closely with content providers.
Expert speakers addressed the boom in mobile financial services and the use of social media, with representatives from Ibaka TV, Eskimi, 2go, Clickatell, Airtel and the Ekiti State Government, among others.
BBC World chose NigeriaCom to announce the launch of their new targeted mobile service for local audiences. This special co-located event was followed by the second annual AppGig. Following on last year’s huge success, the AppGig was made up of a series of informal chats and workshops focusing on creating and monetising quality local apps. Enhancing local app talent were leaders from Google, Yookos, Globacom and Mobile Monday, to name but a few. This fun, hands-on gig was a great way to round off what has been an extremely successful event here in Lagos.
