According to Akin Naphtal, Group Executive Publisher of MobileWorld, the awards come at an apt moment, when the Nigerian mobile industry is going through an “innovation metamorphosis”.

“Today, Nigeria is not only an investment haven for investors but also emerging as a testing ground for product innovations” he added.

Disclosing the motive behind the awards, Mr. Naphtal hinted that Mobile Innovation Awards has been created to promote excellence in Mobile technology in Nigeria and recognize the achievements and accomplishments in the telecoms industry noting that the awards will bring the spotlight to the mobile operators, VAS providers, ICT companies and banks pushing boundaries and shaping the industry.

The Awards will focus on the contribution of individuals, organisations, projects and technologies that have excelled in the use, development and deployment of exceptional products and services in the mobile space.

The event which is expected to attract over 200 guests will offers a unique opportunity and platform for industry leading personalities to network with peers and celebrate the achievements of the telecoms sector in improving the Socio-economic development of Nigeria
