Abuja, Nigeria

April 21 – 23, 2020 • April 24, 2020 ICT4D Training Day

The 12th Information Communications Technology for Development (ICT4D) Conference is leading the conversation in digital development, bringing together 800+ attendees from public, private and civil society organizations, eager to share practical insights on applying digital technology to development, humanitarian, and conservation challenges.

With two months to go and hundreds of attendees registered already, we’ve published advice on Visa requirements, security guidance, COVID-19 guidance, and general FAQs for our conference attendees to assist with the planning.

All sessions and networking activities of the ICT4D Conference take place under one roof at the Sheraton Abuja Hotel, where attendees can also book their accommodation.

Nigeria is one of the largest markets in Africa for emerging technologies. With its numerous tech and innovation hubs, one of the highest penetrations of mobile phones and internet access, and diverse and young workforce within the 200 million population, it offers unparalleled opportunities for employing digital innovations at scale. Abuja, the capital of Nigeria, is not only the home of the Nigerian government, embassies, international and multi-lateral organizations, but also a growing hub for start-ups and entrepreneurs.

Abuja can be said to be relatively safe given a robust 24/7 government led surveillance system. Just like other metropolitan towns, it also has its share of opportunistic social crimes, but these have not been a major security issue.
