With this in mind, TechDev Summit 2016 is designed to further add value by digging deeper into the challenges with a view to finding innovative solutions based on the deep intellectual thoughts and opinions that will flow out of the summit. Thankfully, we have lined up speakers with very rich experience and top on the agenda is how technology can play a leading role in the diversification of the Nigerian economy.
So, in a bid to make the event truly outstanding, the conveners of TechDev Summit 2016; Ken Nwogbo, Editor-in-chief, Nigeria CommunicationsWeek and Chukwuemeka Fred Agbata Jnr. “CFA” Founder, TechSmart.ng and Presenter, Tech Trends on Channels Television, spent the weekend in Enugu and made a tactical move to change the venue of the summit to De Dome, Enugu, a popular and well respected venue for holding top class events in the State. It is located opposite Edward Nnaji Park, New Haven, by Nza Link road, Independence Layout, Enugu.
The excitement has been tremendous as the folks we met on ground cannot wait for the 6th of December when the summit will conmence. So far, we have over 300 online signups and 60% of our resource persons have confirmed attendance.
The Chairman of the summit remains Ernest Ndukwe, Pioneer Executive Vice Chairman of NCC, alongside the likes of Leo Stan-Ekeh, Chairman, Zinox Group; Yele Okeremi, Managing Director, Precise Financial Systems; Yusuf kazaure, MD, Galaxy Backbone Limited; Chris Uwaje, Director General, DSI Hub, alongside many others.
The team has also concluded and received good discounts for the following hotels for guests and resource persons coming from other parts of the country.
Here are some of the hotels:
- Golden Royale
- Tuscan Hotel
- Utopia Suites
The mission of the conveners is basically to work harder to see that the North, South, East and West all develop technologically, focusing on what gives each zone the most comparative advantage. This, in our view, is a more sustainable approach to tech development rather than having only one or two states in the country advance technologically.
With the mission clearly stated, we look forward to welcoming you at TechDev Summit 2016, Enugu!
