Obi Asika, Chairman of Social Media Week Lagos, said:
"SocialMediaWeek Lagos has shown again the power of Lagos and the innovation of young Nigerians. This is the platform where content, culture and mobile converge to engage a new world. I am a firm believer in the real power of Nigeria being the soft power driven by the creative industries, and yet again the amazing people who attended this conference have shown the power and passion of Nigerians at all levels."
New Direction for 2015
In our efforts to build Africa's biggest digital media event and create a more dynamic attendee experience SMW Lagos will be moving to a campus model. In 2015 we will introduce a central campus experience, that will feature three main stages, master class workshops, co-working/collaboration spaces, private meeting rooms and our first ever SMW Lagos installation and exhibition space.
The SMW Lagos team is very excited about the new direction SMW Lagos is taking. The re-vamped event format will deliver a heightened, more engaging experience for attendees and give our event partners/sponsors an opportunity to shine.
Our team is already in planning mode for 2015! We look forward to working with our partners again to deliver another great week of outstanding programming.
