Media Launch of Nigeria’s Largest Tech Hub

Zone Tech Park sign






In July the team at TelecomsPRAfrica were approached by long-time VC investor Toro Orero to help launch Zone Tech Park, the largest tech hub in Nigeria.

The brief was straightforward:

  • To garner positive media coverage for Zone Tech Park, its aims and objectives – and to explain how it’s different to the multiple other hubs in Nigeria.

What we did:

  • Organised a press conference and tour of the hub
  • Invited key media and influencers from across Nigeria
  • Secured telephone briefings with media who are based outside Nigeria
  • Wrote and distributed a press release and background documents


  • 54 journalists from 36 media houses attended the 1 August event. All enjoyed the tour, meeting Toro, and some of the startups already at the hub.
  • Multiple stories – print, online, videos and tweets.
