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.

In line with its goal of remaining a key driver to technology in Nigeria and transforming business practices and technology development across the economy, this year’s TechPlus Conference will focus remarkably on deepening the growth of startups in the country.

According to a statement released by the organizers, experienced professionals will be brought in to share on ways and methods to make Startups stand out, and how best to optimize the local ecosystem to get to the next level.

Apart from empowering Startups, other tracks on offer during the 2017 conference include Women in Tech, Tech Money, Tech for Development, C-suite, Content, Media and Marketing, Tech Kids, e-Sports and Tech Meets Life. Thought leaders in all these fields would be invited to share about developments and applications in their various sectors.

Some of the issues that speakers during the Women in Tech session will address include mentorship, promoting gender balance in technology and women empowerment.

Tech Kids will investigate the impact of devices and their technologies on families as well as parenting best practices in this new digital era. The e-Sports track seeks to explain how the rise of gaming has become infused into society and continues to evolve worldwide.

At the Tech Meets Life stream, the prevalence of technology and how it affects everyday life in health, agriculture, personal security etc. will be dissected. At Tech Money, the evolution of payment solutions and human behavior as it interfaces with digital payments are topics to anticipate. Whilst the Tech in Development will aim to dissect through a different lens, how existing technology can be used to achieve the required advancement.

The faculty for the Content, Media and Marketing through presentations will show how boundaries have blurred and will continue to do so when it comes to marketing, content and technology. C-suite tracks are geared to speak to business heads, assisting them with how to deploy and leverage tech to achieve market leadership and shape the future.

Participants are signing up in large numbers to attend different sessions as they demonstrate readiness to learn and create opportunities for personal growth to enrich and ‘energize’ their dreams. Panel discussions, speakers and vigorous interaction await each participant at any track of their choice.
