What went on at Jumia’s Tech Bloggers Roundtable


This year’s Jumia Mobile Week Reloaded is starting next week, May 30, 2016. It’s the second edition of Jumia’s Mobile Week, and as is tradition, there was a Tech Bloggers Round Table event in preparation for the event.

The event was at Jumia Head Office in Lagos and it featured bloggers from TechCabal, GeekNG, TechPoint, TechSuplex, MissTechy, and TechCity, to name a few. Representatives from mobile phone brands like Tecno, Infinix, Injoo, and Lenovo were also present.

The roundtable was anchored by Bertille Guitton,  Head of Communications for Jumia, and Olaoluwa Oloyede, PR Jumia. We talked about stuff like the pros & cons of big screens, factors other than the megapixels that influence the quality of pictures, and factors that influence customers’ purchase decisions in Nigeria.

Jumia also released a summarised version of their 2016 White Paper on mobile trends in Africa. I’m just going to put it here so you can see it for yourself.
