The biggest technology event is back and is bigger than ever this year! The Techplus 2017 theme is An Intelligent Future: From Connectivity to Digital Immersion and promises all lovers of tech an exciting time for its three day duration. From July 6 to 8, the Landmark Event Centre in Victoria Island will be bursting at the seams with all things technology.

When we say all things tech, we mean ALL…from industry captains, thought leaders, experts, enthusiasts, geeks, followers, lovers and the curious. We had you on our mind when we conceived this edition and we promise that there’s something for everybody. Enterprises, start-ups, women, media, financial services, development and even the government have been included. The global technology ecosystem will be represented as well as what the African continent has to offer.

The line up of speakers are founders, innovators, experts and leaders in technology and includes Silas Adekunle, Bukola Sawyerr-Izeogu, Chioma Agwuegbo, Abiodun Johnson and many more. They will share on ideas, policies and the development taking place in the technological space at the local, national and international levels.

The theme will delve into several aspects that include AI, AR, workforce automation, digital disruption and the internet of things. We will catch a glimpse of how some of these advanced technologies are being applied in everyday use at school, work and home. We make bold to say you will discover that science fiction is no longer a genre in Hollywood but is closer than you imagined and right at your fingertips.

Get ready to learn some things you did not know, rediscover and plunge into deeper realities but also have some fun! In this regards we have planned for the kids to participate in this year’s conference too. Like we all know technology also plays a huge part in entertainment and gaming is a big part of the pie. The gaming culture has a growing audience on the African continent and once again gamers will demonstrate their skills as they compete for mouth-watering prizes.

Techplus 2017 promises to be exciting and it’s just a few weeks away. We started early so that you don’t miss out on any aspect of this awesome event. Save the date and get ready to connect, interact, engage and collaborate on all things tech.
