One event that has stuck in my mind from 2011 is the Mobile Web Africa conference organised by All Amber. I am looking forward to the 4th annual Mobile Web Africa which will take place during the final week of November. In my opinion this is the must-attend event.
Last year there was so much to Tweet about, that I was rated as “the Networker” of the event and Tallulah Habib was rated as “Loudmouth” of the event – it is just that jam packed with amazing insights and info !
There is always a great line up and as the conference runs over 3 days, there is something for everyone:
- Tuesday 27nd November – “Mobile Marketing Africa” Focus Day
- Wednesday 28rd November – First Day of Mobile Web Africa 2012 Main Conference
- Thursday 29th November – Second Day of Mobile Web Africa 2011 Main Conference
Industry experts from companies including Vodacom, MXit, 2go, M&C Saatchi Mobile, Nedbank, Prezence Digital, biNu, Quirk, Huawei, and Google will join over 200 attendees from across Sub-Saharan Africa to discuss a range of topics: evaluating the status quo, mobile marketing, mobile for social good, the rapidly evolving mobile app ecosystem, mCommerce, achieving scale through feature phones, enterprise mobility and the impact of mobile social media.
The common theme running through the business focused conference’s agenda will be success – the current state of the industry, exploring case studies and delving into the next realm of opportunities.
Mobile Web Africa will be held at The Venue Melrose Arch in Johannesburg and will feature 40+ contributors from South Africa, the U.K., Australia, Ghana, Tanzania, Kenya and Nigeria. All of the key industry associations and industry stakeholder groups will be represented in the delegation.
One aspect that sets this event apart is that it is limited to 220 people and everyone is seated at round tables which lends itself to great networking opportunities.
I am told that the venue is already over 75% full so if you haven’t booked, I seriously suggest you do so ASAP at: www.mobilewebafrica.com. Don’t forget that start-ups, NGO’s, academics and application developers are eligible for a 50% subsidy on attendance.
Still need convincing ?
