This week, I confirmed my participation at the forthcoming Mobile Web Africa Conference in Jo’burg, South Africa on October 13 & 14, 2009. The event being organized by All Amber, is poised to be a marker in the development of the mobile web on the African continent.
The theme is:
Harnessing the Potential of the Internet and Applications on Mobile Devices
Mobile Web Africa aims to have ecosystem wide representation. The list of speakers and panellists is evidence of this. The delegation will be made up of representatives from Operators, Network Companies, OEM’s, PC and Mobile Focused Publishers, Traditional and New Media, Advertising Agencies, Design Agencies, Social Networking Companies, Application Stores, Start-Ups and Developers. The key questions that would be answered at the event include:
- How will the industry evolve to a point where the vast majority of people have access to the mobile web and the content they want to view?
- How will the industry fully exploit existing and future opportunities?
- How can PC or mobile based developers and start-ups monetise their innovation and creativity to grow in to companies that will drive the expansion of the ecosystem?
- How can Operators, Original Equipment Manufacturers, global associations and other mobile powerhouses assist their smaller partners?
- How can societal and economic problems be tackled by the development of the capabilities of the mobile device?
- What handsets, standards, networks and designs will allow consumers to successfully access the content and consume it?
- How will the consumer be able to discover that content – through an Application, Browser, Search Engine, Advert, Social Network?
Through a series of presentations, extended panel discussions and networking opportunities, hopefully these questions will be answered.
For start-ups and developers from Nigeria and West Africa that are interested in this event, you can take advantage of TICKET SUBSIDIES being offered by All Amber.
As expected, I’m eagerly looking forward to meeting industry experts as well as start-up founders around Africa and the world at the event. I’ll be posting more updates about the event here on this blog.
