(Lagos, Nigeria) – 23 April, 2014:

Tomi Ahonen, the man measured by Forbes as the world’s most influential expert in mobile, will be taking to the stage and sharing his esteemed vision of the future of mobile at the Mobile West Africa 2014 conference, taking place in Lagos on 13-16 May at the Four Points by Sheraton on Victoria Island. Mr. Ahonen will also deliver a dedicated full-day workshop on Friday, 16 May titled “How to make money in mobile”.

Additionally, Dr. Ernest Ndukwe, considered as the key figure in bringing about the mobile data revolution in Nigeria, will be presenting his perspective during the keynote session. Mr. Ahonen and Dr. Ndukwe will be joined by senior industry pundits including the CEO & MD of Airtel Nigeria, the Founder of SPARK and iROKO Partners, and representatives from Nokia, DSTV Digital Media, Nigerian Breweries, PZ Cussons and Praekelt.

Organisations such as Eskimi, VConnect, Co-Creation Hub, MTech, ConnectNigeria, SureGifts, and TomTom Africa have pledged their early commitment to the conference, which is regarded as the leading technology event in West Africa, and delegate tickets are selling quickly.

Event founder Matthew Dawes commented “When we first debuted Mobile West Africa way back in February 2011 it was a different era. West Africa’s smartphone penetration was low, Nigeria’s first incubation space (CcHUB) was yet to be launched, the eCommerce boom was still years away, and mobile money was far from reality. It has been a remarkable few years and I would hope that in some way the event has contributed to that growth. I want MWA2014 to be a joyride – celebrating past successes, critically analysing the industry’s future direction and opportunities, and to again be the conference to come and do business at. Having the likes of Tomi Ahonen and Dr. Ndukwe confirmed signifies our intent to further cement the event’s position as the best in the region.”
