In addition to Ecobank, Microsoft Nigeria, aYo Holdings Ltd, Old Mutual, Curacel, Leadway Assurance, AXA Mansard, MediSmarts, ActivEdge, ETAP, MotoMarket, Paddy Cover, and Interswitch Group, whose leaders will address the delegates or make presentations, the leading ICT company joins the list of organisations.
Microsoft Nigeria, MTN, Active Edge, and MotoMarket will all present at IMT 2022, and Marius Botha, the Group Chief Executive Officer of aYo Holdings Ltd. in South Africa, whose company has operations in five African nations, will share insights on how technology has facilitated their expansion and adoption across the continent. The insurtech summit will be the first Nigerian event to stream over MTN’s recently launched 5G internet network now that MTN Nigeria has confirmed participation and is providing full internet speed for the industry debate.
“We are poised to disrupt West Africa’s insurance and insurtech industry, and it will be an exhilarating experience for those who would join in person for this era-defining dialogue,” IMT2022 Convener Odion Aleobua, who is also the Chief Executive Officer of Modion Communications, stated. “The delegates who would join virtually on www.insurancemeetstech.com would be streaming via a first-of-its-kind 5G internet broadband at a connection speed of over 900 mbps. Interestingly, virtual conference organisers need about 100 mbps for a superior streaming experience, but with 900 mbps 5G internet broadband, we have an outstanding internet connection plan that will be the first to be put in place in Nigeria,” Aleobua said.
