Steve Martin, business development manager, BBC: “It’s obvious that the internet in Nigeria is mobile” – NigeriaCom continues with day two.

After yesterday’s great launch to NigeriaCom 2013, day 2 got off to a great start with an extremely dynamic panel discussion on the change in how content is consumed thanks to the advent of mobile devices. The audience heard from the most spearheading players in the field including Spinlet, iRoking and the BBC. This was followed by a vibrant presentation on the future of the traditional TV and radio format courtesy of Google Nigeria. 

Informa Telecoms & Media’s expert team ran the highly popular and productive Speed Networking session providing a unique opportunity for event supporters to get one-to-one time with potential business partners. Etisalat, host sponsor of NigeriaCom 2013, have enjoyed a very busy space with much interest and enthusiasm surrounding their second-to-none offerings.

Whereas day one of NigeriaCom focused on the foundations of telecommunications, networks, connectivity and quality of service, day two took a close look at added services which operators need to capitalise on by working closely with content providers. As well as entertainment, our expert speakers also addressed the boom in mobile financial services and the use of social media, with representatives from Ibaka TV, Eskimi, 2go, Clickatell, Airtel and the Ekiti State Government, among others.   
 
BBC World chose NigeriaCom to announce the launch of their new targeted mobile service for local audiences. This special co-located event was followed by the second annual AppGig. Following on last year’s huge success, the AppGig was made up of a series of informal chats and workshops focusing on creating and monetising quality local apps. Enhancing local app talent were leaders from Google, Yookos, Globacom and Mobile Monday, to name but a few. This fun, hands-on gig was a great way to round off what has been an extremely successful event here in Lagos. 
 
As one speaker, Olatunde Farinade, CEO of BrowseDotCom, put it, NigeriaCom gets better each year - We couldn’t have put it better ourselves. Make sure you don’t miss out on NigeriaCom Version 5.0 in 2014!
