Massive Turnout and Baller Vibes at the Ibadan Tech Expo
First things first, let’s talk about the turnout! Ibadan, ki ni soo?! Well, it seems like the answer was “Tech Expo!” The event saw a massive crowd of tech enthusiasts and entrepreneurs coming together for a day filled with knowledge sharing, networking, and, of course, some good old-fashioned fun.
Slvr Wlf Digitale Takes the Stage
Slvr Wlf Digitale made its presence known at the Ibadan Tech Expo. We were ready to soak up the knowledge and connect with fellow tech enthusiasts. But hey, who can resist a little party, right?
We got VIP tickets and turned up BIG for this event. The VIP ticket gave us access to front-row seats with a close-up view of speakers and panellists (I mean, we could almost touch them SMILES), snacks and juice.
Did I forget to mention we were sponsors? Yup yup! Slvr Wlf was a sponsor of the first tech expo in Ibadan! Big, right? We think so, too!
Star-Studded Keynote Lineup
The Tech Expo brought some heavy hitters to the stage. We had the privilege of hearing from Seun Onigbinde, the CEO and Co-Partner of BudgIT, who shared insights that left us pondering the future of tech in Nigeria. And if that wasn’t enough, Akin Alabi, the business mogul, spoke on how to sell tech to Nigerians.
Product Demos, Souvenirs and Raffle Draws
Who doesn’t love freebies? Attendees had the chance to win some fantastic souvenirs, and the anticipation was electric during the raffle draw. The lucky winners were all smiles, and we couldn’t be happier for them! Product demos from Seki App, Cardify, PatchPay, Watu, Shiga, Sanwo App, Maringo, and others left us in awe, showcasing the incredible innovations happening right here in Ibadan.
