2016 IAD summit gets 10-man Local Organizing Committee

A 10-man Local Organizing Committee (LOC) for the 2016 Innovation Africa Digital (IAD) Summit has been inaugurated in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), reports ITRealms.

The Vice-Chairman of the Summit Planning Team, Mr. Owoicho Igoji, while inaugurating the 10-man LOC said that IAD Summit is a continental ICT stakeholder engagement platform that is held annually across the African continent. 

He said that before now, the IAD had held successfully in 13 countries, pointing out that Nigeria was selected to host the 2016 event due to recent developments in the telecoms and ICT sector. 

Some of these events, he said, include the recent rebasing of her economy in 2014, and the huge contribution of the sector to the Nigerian GDP, played a major role in Nigeria’s emergence as the largest economy in Africa.

The 14th edition of the IAD Summit, he said, will hold from 19th – 21st April, 2016 at Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja by 8.30am. 

Igoji, who doubles as chairman, LOC said the committee’s Terms of Reference (ToR) was carefully created in a manner that will ensure the successful execution of the event. 

“The ToR has been structured in a manner that makes it possible to plan and deliver the event end to end. It will also help to guide deliberations of the LOC and the execution of assigned tasks. Our focus should be to deliver positive results on the basis of the MOU signed between Nigeria represented by Ministry of Communications and GBB on one hand and Extensia UK,” he said.

ITRealms gathered that the committee is made up of five sub-committees namely; Programme Coordination/Secretariat/Accommodation, Entertainment/Dinners, Media/Publicity/Marketing, Finance/Procurement and Logistics/Transportation/Security, even as LOC membership was drawn from public ICT ecosystem.
