KICC

The Kenyan Ministry of Information, Communication and Technology in conjunction with the ICT authority and industry players, have announced a National ICT innovation Forum and Expo conference from March 2 to 3, 2015.

The event with the theme “Mind the Gap, Close the Gap”, is the “first of its kind aimed at bringing the top echelons of decision makers in the innovation ecosystem”, the organizers say.

“This forum is proposed in recognition of the fact that, we have successfully launched very strategic national ICT programs and initiated new discussions. This therefore brings in the need for additional independent forums to digest in greater depth the action items that come out of Connected Kenya, and accelerate their implementation”, the statement on their website say about the event.

According to the organizers, speakers at the event include Victor Kyalo – CEO ICT Authority; Dr Fred Matiang’I, Cabinet Secretary, Ministry of ICT and the Director of Partnerships, Innovation and Capacity Eunice Mueni Kariuki.

Furthermore, the forum and expo is expected: “to create awareness about ICT and business innovation as investment opportunities, showcase the best of Kenya’s innovations to top government officials and industry captains, encourage investors to invest in the ICT sector in order to develop our economy and give our youth wealth and jobs opportunities and to connect public service, investors and innovators.”

Venue for the upcoming event is at the Kenyatta International Conference Centre (KICC), Nairobi Kenya and it’s billed for the second and third of March 2015 respectively. More information for stakeholders, investors, start-ups and interested participants or those who wish to register can be found here; however, deadline for registration is 22 February.
