Broadcast, Film and Music Africa, an conference international event will take place on 10-11 July 2012 at the Oshwal Centre Westlands, Nairobi, in Kenya. An estimated 400 delegates are expected this year including some top audiovisual experts and speakers. 
“Through our ‘Broadcast, Film and Music Africa (BFMA)’ event, we have realised that content owners, the media and telecoms industries are increasingly developing synergies. These players need to establish stronger partnerships if they want to stay competitive” said Sean Moroney, Chairman of AITEC Africa. BFMA is the continent’s only business and technology event to serve the creative content and electronic media industry through an integrated platform. It is the  fourth conference in the series and will provide a stock-taking opportunity for stakeholders in all three industries, and empower them with the knowledge and business contacts they need to build Africa’s electronic media future.

The conference is aimed at senior and middle managers in: national television and radio stations; pay TV companies; international broadcasters like CNN, BBC, NBC, VOA and CCTV; television and film production companies; facilities providers including production equipment hire, post-production and outside broadcast; donors and faith-based organisations that run their own broadcast organisations for development purposes; television and film equipment vendors and satellite capacity suppliers;advertising and marketing agencies; and mobile and fixed telephone operators looking at convergence opportunities.
