I would be delivering a presentation at the up-coming ComBIT Africa event, organized by AITEC Africa. The event holds between 2nd and 4th November 2009 at Lagoon Conference Centre, Lagos, Nigeria.

I would be speaking on Day 1 during the second session on “The impact of submarine connectivity on the region’s web hosting industry” and would be taking a close look at the potentials offered by the submarine connectivity in West Africa, for the web hosting industry especially with the new arrival of Glo-1 submarine cable.

ComBIT Africa has it roots in Nigeria’s burgeoning telecommunications sector, having been the showcase for the industry since it was launched by ATCON 14 years ago (previously called NICOMM and changed to ComBIT in 2008). The event has grown to be the country’s premier ICT event. In light of Nigeria’s leading regional role and to the era of rapid convergence, the event has been expanded to be Africa-wide in perspective, as well as covering the full spectum of ICT technologies and strategies. It is ATCON’s mission to develop the event as the continent’s premier ICT industry event. To achieve this goal, the Association has appointed AITEC Africa, the continent’s leading organiser of ICT events, to manage the event and promote it across the continent and internationally as part of its extensive programme of exhibitions and conferences.

You can read more about the event by visiting the ComBIT Africa website and can register to attend as well.
