Continuing in the tradition of executing one of the best if not the best mobile tech events in East Africa, the AllAmber team led by Matthew Dawes are back with Mobile Web East Africa (MWEA) 2012 which will be held on February 22-23rd at the prestigious Southern Sun-May Fair hotel. I had the pleasure of attending and participating in a panel at the first MWEA event back in 2010, and this event is one you cannot afford to miss. This year MWEA takes at a notch higher with a speaker lineup that is worth it’s weight in Gold. The speaker line up includes:
This is one of the most dynamic speaker lineup we’ve seen in a long time, and is sure to keep the attendees well informed on the mobile industry not only in Kenya but in Africa as a general. Looking for inspiration to start that mobile business in Africa? then you want to listen to John Waibochi of Virtual City winners of the Nokia Grand Challenge Competition, wondering how small is the new big? Judith Owigar , President of Akirachix and winner of Anita Borg award, will tell you how a simple idea can became a community changer. In short this is an event you don’t want to miss.
