Mobile Web East Africa 2013 – Nairobi, Kenya

04 Feb, 2013

Whiles in Kenya for an Ushahidi meeting-cum-vacation, I chanced on the opportunity to attend the 2nd Mobile Web East Africa Conference in Nairobi, Kenya.

It’s one of the major conferences happening on the African continent unearthing the potentials of Mobile applications, developers and the technologies involved.

Yesterday, I heard about the same conference coming back to Nairobi again. See details from their Press Release below:

Mobile Web East Africa is back, with a bang. This is one interactive event that hosts players in the mobile ecosystem in Africa, hosted in Kenya, one of the leading cities in the mobile sector.

The event will be focused on the business around mobile and will host speakers from Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, South Africa, Nigeria, Qatar, Canada, UK and US. On top of that we will have industry leaders partner with the organizers All Amber to make the event a cannot-afford-to-miss one.

According to All Amber Founder Matthew Dawes, this is the third Mobile Web East Africa and the ninth of the Mobile Web Africa Series, and Nairobi attracts a lot of attention from interested parties and speakers, and it keeps growing every year.
