Mobile Web West Africa 2013, the region’s leading mobile focused conference, has almost hit full capacity over a week before the event is due to be held. The event takes place from May 7th through 10th at the Four Points by Sheraton in Lagos, Nigeria. Only a handful of places now remain for the popular industry get-together; this will be the third year in a row that the event completely sells out.


Matthew Dawes, the Event Director, expressed his enthusiasm: “This year’s edition of Mobile Web West Africa has booked up faster than either of the previous conferences and this is an indication of the level of progress in the industry. MWWA2013 features our best speaker line-up yet and the industry support is above and beyond anything we’ve experienced before. My hope is that the presentations, discussions and networking on offer will enable and facilitate growth, as that is my main objective. Next week it’s very much a case of “game on” and I look forward to arriving again in one of the most vibrant and fast paced mobile hubs in the world.”


The Mobile Web West Africa 2013 speaker faculty is composed of the very best local and international experts from organisations including Qualcomm, Etisalat, MXit, VConnect, biNu, Thomson Reuters, iROKING, Jumia Nigeria, M-Net Africa, Spinlet, L5Lab, Eskimi, Guinness Nigeria and Airtel. Main One, Dimension Data, Carat MP and MIH Internet are just a few of the many companies sending representatives to the event.


The 2013 edition features the first ever Mobile Marketing West Africa Focus Day, a mini-event in itself. On Tuesday May 7th mobile marketing experts from Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya and South Africa will share best practice insights and case studies on mobile advertising, data & analytics, mobile social networks and location based services. Focus Day presenters include Google, Konga, Wild Fusion, 2go, Twinpine and AdsBrook.


MWWA2013 will also bring together the top minds in mobile app development. The App Developer Competition will showcase creations from 5 of the region’s best app developers; prizes include BlackBerry handsets and an iPad mini. A dedicated invite-only App Developer Day on May 10th will provide detailed training for developers seeking to optimize and monetize their mobile apps.
