This October, PAQ SESSION, one of Africa’s most anticipated thought leadership and innovation summits kicks off in Port Harcourt on the 27th with a collective of speakers drawn from Lagos and Port Harcourt.
The summit has been hosted in three cities in 2016 with a mini session hosted earlier this year to unveil its theme and focus for 2017.
Speaking on this, the convener and chief futurist, Philip Asuquotes said; “ PAQ SESSION started out last year and the reviews it got from attendees and the audience made us realize we had to up the ante with every edition we host. This year, we are kicking it off in Port Harcourt and we have added some new features to it.
“One of this is the Exhibition/Sales space for startups and companies that would want to exhibit their services and product to create awareness and make sales to our attendees. This year’s edition also has a special showcase segment that will have us give the podium to 5 startups in the Niger Delta to tell the audience about their platforms, challenges, opportunities, etc.”
With a crop of speakers that spans across the tech space and thought leadership sphere, the summit will hold at :
