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.
