“The amount of industry support we’ve receive is unprecedented and it’s an illustration of how far the event has developed since it started in 2011. To secure MTN, Airtel and Etisalat – as well as international players like Mozilla, Opera and Basebone – and then have the support of key local stakeholders such as Eskimi, Gidi Mobile, MTech and MoboFree reflects the will within the industry to keep it moving forwards,” All Amber Founder, Matthew Dawes, commented.
He said the conference had come a long way in the last five years, more so than he could have hoped for, and he wanted it to continue to facilitate progress.
“That’s what we’re here for. I’d like to encourage anyone with a stake in the industry to come and contribute to the discussions,” Dawes said.
Since 2011, Mobile West Africa has been regarded as the leading technology event in the region. Each year, the conference brings together the best brains in the mobile ecosystem and covers the evolution of mobile data, products and services in West Africa.
