Mobile Web East Africa 2012
is an action-packed, progressive and highly interactive conference that over the course of two days will facilitate the growth of the mobile ecosystem in the region. It has a fantastic speaker faculty and is tackling one of the most important aspects of technological development: harnessing the potential of the mobile web and applications.

are eligible to apply for a 50% subsidy. Registrations can be made on the event website (www.mobileeastafrica.com

- The *iHub_ and m:lab East Africa have pledged their support and The Kenya ICT Board has agreed to be the formal host organisation.
- The delegation is now 80% full – over 115 places have been allocated, leaving less than 25 before the event sells out.

As a part of our remit to foster the growth of the ecosystem, the *iHub_ is really pleased to be linking up with All Amber on Mobile Web East Africa 2012. It’s a fantastic event, so we’re glad to be such a part of it and to have some of our members demonstrating their work.
