Ngozi Odita, executive director of social media week, Lagos, says that the fifth edition of the programme will assist in job creation.


Odita said the event, which is scheduled for February 27 to March 3, will be extremely impactful.

“The fifth edition of the social media week (SMW), the week-long conference that provides ideas, trends, insights and inspiration to help people and businesses understand how to achieve more in a hyper-connected world has started building momentum,” a statement read.

“This year, the event features a central stage of keynotes and panels, multiple rooms for workshops, master classes and presentations; and an area dedicated to co-working, networking and interactive installations.


“The social media week is a chance for a global audience to see how social media actually works in the Nigerian and African context especially how it works to affect social change and in turn the infrastructure and challenges that are in the Nigerian market.”

“Since the last four editions, social media week has grown to be one of the largest events that is organized in Lagos, Nigeria with about thirteen thousand people attending, 300 speakers and 840 million global and online reach. This year it promises to be more impactful with up-to-date information and insights about tech, new media and general business related focuses.

“SMW is already planning for the next five years. SMW will seek to assist in the creation of jobs, facilitate and create investment, help achieve gender balance and create an easy access to quality education.”


The event which will hold at the Landmark centre, Lekki, is free and can be attended by any member of the public.
