Mobile East Africa returns to Nairobi

17 December 2013, 08:31

Nairobi - Organisers of the Mobile East Africa 2014 have announced the dates as well as number of speakers who will participate at the event.

Mobile East Africa, which brings stakeholders in the sector from around the region, is scheduled for February 12 to 13 at the Southern Sun Hotel in Nairobi. Mobile Marketing East Africa Focus Day will be held on February 11.

Among those scheduled to present at the events include Tomi Ahonen, the man measured by Forbes as the world's most influential expert in mobile, Jose Henriques, Group (Vice President- Data at Airtel Africa), Robert Lamptey (CEO of Saya) and Andrew Waititu, the Managing Director for East Africa at SAP as well as senior representatives from IBM, Google and

"They are going to be joined by a whole host of other key individuals who are at the forefront of mobile tech development," said Matthew Dawes, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of All Amber, the United Kingdom-based organisers of the Mobile East Africa.

He was confident of another successful event. The 2014 Mobile East Africa is the fourth edition.

"Well, you cannot hold back progress and I'm aware that we need to pull out all the stops to make sure we continue to receive the accolades and exceptional feedback we have grown used to. The focus for 2014 is expanding mobile data usage and driving monetisation through industry collaboration so the plan is to bring all the key stakeholder groups together and deliver an in-depth, high quality, interactive event that is going to have super networking (as ever), high tempo presentations, penetrating panel discussions and a few "on-the-money" debates.  There is going to be a huge amount for organisations to benefit from," Dawes said.
