Africa’s technology news leader ITNewsAfrica, in association with sponsor WorldsView Technologies, is proud to host the next Nigerian edition of the Innovation Dinner Series on 17 September 2013 in Lagos, Nigeria. The theme of this exclusive event is Technology Accelerating Infrastructure Development to Achieve Nigeria Vision 2020.

The Innovation Dinner Series is a ‘by invitation only’ event that takes place every two months in South Africa and twice a year in Nigeria.

It attracts ICT leaders and business decision makers from across the continent to discuss issues that impact Africa’s burgeoning ICT industry.

Delegates will enjoy a luxurious three-course meal at a top-class venue – in this case The Four Points by Sheraton – and participate in scintillating conversation around the theme; one that has emerged as a hot talking point within the business environment at large.

The main objective of Nigeria’s Vision 2020 is to position the country amongst the 20 largest economies globally by the year 2020. Technology has a vital role to play in helping to accelerate infrastructure development to assist in realising this objective.

A number of keynote speakers will take to the podium during the evening, including: TPL. Olutoyin Adedamola Ayinde, Honorable Commissioner: Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development, Lagos State; Umar Buba Bindir (PhD), CEO/ Director General, National Office for Technological Acquisition and Promotion; David Haslam, Managing Director at WorldsView Technologies; and Engr Florence Seriki MFR, Founder and CEO of Omatek Ventures Plc.

The Innovation Dinner has an established following within the continent’s rapidly developing ICT sector (click here to view photos from past dinners).

Comments from attendees of past Dinners attest to the event’s relevance and stature.

“Thank you very much for the invite, I received the value that I wanted,” said Izak Loubser, Assistant Director: Tektique, Department of Science and Technology.

“Excellent speakers that speak from experience,” commented Willem Hart, CIO at Xtend BI.

The Innovation Dinner is by invitation only and space is limited. IT professionals interested in attending are urged to register their interest as soon as possible.
