Globacom takes surprises to W.Afri.Tel-08hh

THE Second National Operator (SNO), Globacom has concluded arrangements to surprise visitors at this year’s West Africa Telecommunications Exhibition and Conference (W.Afri.Tel-08) due to hold June in Lagos.

Chief Operating Officer, Globacom, Mr. Mohammed Jameel gave this insight in Lagos and said that more innovative products should be expected from the stable of Globacom come W.Afritel 2008.

“We are renowned for innovative products and quality services. As a very socially responsible company, we have also been doing our best to reward our valued subscribers as well as our people. For W.Afri.Tel 2008, visitors should look out for surprises. It is best to keep it brief,” he said.

Also commenting, the Manager, Exhibitions Management Services (EMS), organisers of the event, Ms Gillian Pope, said that the eighth edition of the annual expo scheduled to hold at the New Expo Centre, Ocean View, Victoria Island, Lagos from June 3 through 5, has become the biggest of its kind in the region.

“Over the years, W.Afri.Tel has built a reputation and has become the sub-region’s biggest and most professional exhibition; so, it is understandable that companies that want to get the most exposure never want to miss this event. Unfortunately we are only able to provide space for those that confirm their booking early as space allocation is on a first-confirmed first-allocated basis,” Pope said.

Stressing that surely, the first preference is to give existing clients, those who exhibited, for instance in last year’s event, the opportunity to either retain their previous spaces or take new ones; they too must first confirm by signing and sending to us the contract form.

“Thereafter, we throw open whatever space is left to new companies, who also can only get any particular space confirmed for them only when we receive their signed contract,” she added.

Mr. Mkpe Abang, Editor-in-Chief of IT & Telecom Digest, the Sole Nigeria Agent, who confirmed that Globacom has been signed on for the event, expressed hope that visitors will benefit from the Second National Operator’s gestures and quality services.

“Globacom has shown the lead in many products, services and tariff structures. We are very hopeful that they will bring some of their very exciting and unique products and services to W.Afri.Tel 2008 and thereby reach out to a larger and discerning audience,” Abang said.

He commended Globacom for its untiring efforts in laying fibre optic across the length and breadth of Nigeria, saying this has no doubt given the company an edge over others and helped to improve the quality of services on its network.

In the build up to W.Afri.Tel 2008, many leading companies have already secured their stands. Some of the early birds include Sony Ericsson, Starcomms, I-Cell, SkyVision, DCC Satellite, Gilat Satcom, Netcom Africa, ACCAT and Dizengoff, to name a few.
