WIOCC, Africa’s Carriers’ Carrier will be present at Capacity Africa 2016 being held in Speke Resort & Conference Centre Kampala, Uganda on Tuesday 27th – Wednesday 28th September 2016. The event brings together 500+ senior-level professionals from 180+ organisations representing the entire African wholesale industry, delivering the ultimate platform to network with existing partners and establish new lucrative business partnerships within the continent.
WIOCC team will be led by WIOCC’s CEO, Chris Wood and joined by other executive team members and directors including; Ryan Sher – COO, James Wekesa – CCO, Mike Last – VP, International Business Development, Hitesh Desai – Director, Sales Southern Africa, Darren Bedford – Director, Africa Business Development, Martin Mutiiria – Director, Africa-Sales and Nikki Popoola – Director, Sales.
Martin Mutiiria – Director, Africa-Sales will be an expert panelist in a discussion session on “The evolution of the African wholesale market – How to keep fit for survival” on the first day (27th September 2016) at 11.40 am. Lately, there has been a paradigm shift with enterprises becoming more active in the purchase of large volumes of data. WIOCC has proven over the years that they have managed to be purely on the wholesale market business and with the new Johannesburg metro coming up which will not target the enterprise space.
The discussion is expected to focus on:
- How much longer can traditional wholesale survive in Africa?
- Is it already approaching the end or is the panic much ado about nothing?
- Is entering the enterprise sector the way forward, or is it in only going to spoil prices in another area?
- Can wholesale learn anything from retail? Which strategies could be adopted?
- Are terminations and managed services the future? Which promise success and how should carriers approach them?
- How can local carriers compete with the big international wholesale players?
- Does development need to happen on a technical level?
The WIOCC event team is lining up a full set of meetings with existing and prospective customers to discuss how WIOCC can support them in Africa. To arrange a meeting with WIOCC please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
