Mobile Web West Africa 2013, the third West African edition of the most progressive and interactive mobile focused events in Sub-Saharan Africa, returns to the Four Points by Sheraton, Victoria Island, Lagos in May. The main conference will take place on May 8th and 9th, the Mobile Marketing West Africa Focus Day will be held on May 7th and an invite-only App Developer Day will run on May 10th.
An integral part of the Mobile Web Africa series, Mobile Web West Africa returns to Lagos on April 24th, 25th and 26th at the Oriental Hotel. Following the sold-out inaugural event in 2011, this year’s edition has been expanded to three days and promises to further establish itself as the place to share knowledge and do business. Mobile Monday Nigeria is officially supporting the event and MoMo members are eligible for a 20% discount on attendance.
An overflowing agenda of interaction and presentations has been created in order to dissect the core areas of the mobile web and applications opportunities. The main two-day conference will touch on key topics including mobile as a tool for empowerment and social good, mobile and music, mobile marketing, and the growth of mobile social media. A session dedicated exclusively to the development of applications for mobile phones will be held on April 24th and there is no charge for app developers to attend (see http://www.mobilewestafrica.com/wp/app-developer-day for details).
