What I really enjoy about organising Mobile West Africa, aside from the awesome buzz in the room on the days of the conference, is that it brings together such a wide range of people — from the operators to the VAS companies to the startups. It’s what makes the interaction, networking and outputs such high quality. Attendees are meeting peers who are passionate, knowledgeable decision makers,” said Matthew Dawes, the organiser of the event which he founded it in 2011.
