IT giants AITEC will, in November host the 12th West African Information and Communication Technology Exhibition and conference in Accra to discuss potential IT related businesses with reference to oil exploration.
The conference, which will attract over 40 exhibitors and 200 visitors, is expected to reflect the country's push towards an e-based economy creating thousands of ICT related jobs and outsourcing opportunities.
Mr Tim Gross, General Manager of AITEC Africa, who made this known at a press briefing in Accra on Wednesday, said Ghana was chosen to host the conference because of its position as a prototype for Africa aimed at improving access to information and better revenue mobilization with its agencies.
Mr Gross said the conference would provide a unique source of information for organisations preparing themselves for evolutionary changeover as a result of the country's oil exploration and a great sales platform for companies and entrepreneurs with products and services in the IT industry.
He said the conference would also focus on reducing cost and improve business effectiveness with the use of technology.
AITEC has been supporting the ICT industry in Ghana for over 12 years by providing marketing, education and training to thousands of individuals and organisations.
