Ends: Thursday, 24 November, 2016 04:00pm
The 9th eNigeria Conference and Expo is a flagship ICT event under the auspices of the Federal republic of Nigeria powered by the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) in collaboration with relevant stakeholders.
It provides a platform for brainstorming on emerging technologies, local innovation and relevant ICT issues for the socio-economic development of Nigeria and partner countries.
This year, the conference which has been themed “Leveraging on IT Innovation for Economic Diversification" is in line with the Nigerian government's policy thrust of diversifying the economy to cope with the rapidly dwindling revenues from the oil sector. Nigeria’s ICT sector has experienced tremendous growth and it has been identified as a credible alternative to oil as a main source of income for the country.
eNigeria 2016 aims to bring the key players of the Nigerian Innovation Ecosystem and foreign stakeholders together to share experiences, identify challenges and propose strategies for using ICT-enabled Innovation and Entrepreneurship to diversify the economy and create jobs.
