AfricaCast cements its status as a major broadcast event in Africa


AfricaCast brings together the continent's biggest broadcasters and TV stakeholders and will take place on 14th-15th November 2012 in Cape Town Convention Centre, Cape Town, South Africa.

AfricaCast returns for a second year and continues to be the premier event in Sub Saharan Africa for broadcasters. This year - under the theme 'Unlocking the Potential of African TV through Digital Transformation' we have the support of SABC, ABN, Endemol and Multichoice, among many major broadcasters who have provided CXO level speakers to discuss the future opportunities for African broadcasters. We also have Peter Vesterbacka from Rovio who invented Angry Birds and Alex Okosi from Viacom who was responsible for the launch of MTV in Africa.

The event will provide a vital platform for all stakeholders to engage and debate how best to monetise the future of African broadcasting.

Last year we had an incredibly successful launch with 228 delegates attending the AfricaCast conference. This year we are expecting more and have developed an agenda to reflect the popularity of this event.
AfricaCast is once again co-located with AfricaCom, the largest community event in Africa. Register now for a free exhibition pass and you will be able to network with 7,000+ attendees, all sharing their vision for a digital Africa.
