Nigeriacom 2012: it’s all about the customer 


The 3rd annual Nigeria Com closed today in Lagos after 2 days of debate within the telecoms, media and ICT industry: a chance to take a look at the opportunities in Africa’s largest and arguably most exciting market.

The main message was that despite challenges, Nigeria offers growing opportunities to those who can take them. The key to success is to deliver what consumers want. However this seemingly simple objective is not an easy task in an environment where behaviours, technologies and trends are changing rapidly.



The first conference day focused on business models, networks, smartphones and new revenues opportunities for operators (including mobile marketing). The 2nd day brought in the point of view of different players: content providers, social media brands and financial institutions. The sessions were a success because they enabled different parts of the digital ecosystem to discuss partnerships and service opportunities to benefit all involved.

New features were included at this year’s Nigeria Com: Speed Networking sessions, an AppGig for applications developers hosted by Blackberry, a VIP lounge and new sessions on mobile marketing & advertising, mobile financial services, OTT players and more.

Nigeria Com offered a chance to address the biggest trends in Africa’s digital market before the next must-attend event in the industry’s calendar: AfricaCom, taking place in Cape Town on 13-15 November. Now in its 15th year, AfricaCom is larger than ever: programme extended to 3 days, a larger exhibition, 7000+ attendees, 200 speakers, new sessions, 3 pre-conference events, and the biggest names in the digital industry including MTN, Cell C, Facebook, Rovio, Mxit, Amazon, Vodacom and more.
