Lagos - Companies and regulators in the information and telecommunications sector have confirmed their participation at this year's Connecting West Africa.

The summit is scheduled for June in Dakar, the Senegal capital city.

Organizers confirmed the participation of officials from Airtel, Etisalat, Starcomms and the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC).

These will be among the more than 300 attendees that are expected at Connecting West Africa where 33 countries and 120 companies will be represented.

The attendance lists comprises decision makers from across the entire digital ecosystem including world leading operators and regulators.

Thandi Demanet, the Conference Manager of the Com World Series, which the United kingdom-based Informa Telecoms & Media organizes, said the event would explore prevailing issues in the mobile network sector in the region.

"West Africa still faces challenges in providing reliable and affordable communications technology to its inhabitants and enterprises. There is a need to provide solutions to satisfy a growing demand for new services,
content and big data solutions. This event sets the agenda for the West African telecoms and media industry's year ahead," she stated.

She added, "Connecting West Africa is the only bilingual, West African event looking specifically at networks and infrastructure developments for the region. Gathering together over 300 senior decision-makers from operators, service providers and enterprises, this is an un-missable
networking and earning event."
