Chams Group Founder Revealed as Keynote Speaker for ICTEL Expo 2017

The Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry, organisers of the Information Communication, Technology and Telecommunications Exhibition and Conference (ICTEL EXPO 2017), have announced that the keynote address of this year’s will be delivered by Demola Aladekomo, a seasoned ICT expert, founder of Chams Group Plc and Chairman, Smartcity Resorts Plc.

According to the organisers, Aladekomo will lead an array of panelists as they discuss the theme; “The Digital Economy: Strategies for Growth in A Connected World” at the exhibition.

The exhibition which is in its third year running and has been expanded this year to include not only Nigeria, but the whole of West Africa, is expected to attract major leaders and stakeholders in the technology sector from within and outside Nigeria as they deliberate on issues concerning the Information Communication and Technology industry, explore the best options for the Nigerian ICT sector, and discuss the way forward for the local industry in becoming a major player in a fast-paced digital economy.

It will also serve as a business and trade platform for existing and start-up players in the industry to showcase their offers, products, and services to the participants with a view to expand their business frontiers and gain prospective international clienteles.

Speaking on why Demola Aladekomo was chosen to deliver the keynote address of one of Africa’s biggest ICT conferences and exhibitions, the organisers say Aladekomo is “regarded as one of the pace setters of the ICT industry in Nigeria, having established Chams Plc, a leading dealer in computers and hardware maintenance service which successfully migrated to the developing enterprise technology solutions, initiating several ground-breaking accomplishments in the information identity and management sub-sector of the ICT industry.”

As head of Chams Plc and its subsidiaries, Aladekomo led the successful implementation and execution of several transformative public and private sector led projects of national importance in various sectors of the economy in the country including pioneering the first wide-area-network on private computers in Nigeria, the brain behind ValuCard, the first e-payment card in Nigeria, and establishing ChamsCity, the largest digital mall globally with over 1,000 PCs in a single location- an innovation duly certified by global historian recorders, the Guinness Book of Records.

He also led the company’s involvement in the Banker’s Committee and Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN)-led initiative called the Know-Your-Customer (KYC) project- the Bank Verification Number (BVN), the National ID card project, e-governance and residents’ identification projects with the governments of Lagos, Anambra, and Osun, among others.”

Although now retired from Chams, Aladekomo now sits as Chairman of SmartCity Resorts Plc, an investment and infrastructure company dedicated to creating modern real estate and infrastructure projects that allows people to live, work and relax in a more congenial and industrious way.
