TV Connect Africa, an event previously co-located within AfricaCom, has grown in recent years around distribution models and technologies, to become the premier knowledge exchange and networking platform for broadcasters, telco operators and OTT players across the African continent. While a lot of the focus has been distribution led, growing conference audiences and exhibition visitors have expressed the need not to look at distribution in isolation.
The unprecedented demand for high quality African content across multiple platforms has meant that FTA broadcasters, pay TV operators and new market entrants all need to build an all-encompassing strategy that meets the needs of evolving consumption behaviours.
As such, AfricaCom 2018 sees the growth and evolution of TV Connect Africa into Africa Video Forum; with content poised to feature as a major part of the show this year incorporating several new content stages and features that will include:
Africa Video Forum is co-located with AfricaCom, returning to Cape Town’s CTICC from 13 – 15 November 2018. AfricaCom is part of the Connecting Africa series of events that expose delegates, the media and the savvy, to the latest advancements and opportunities in technology and the digital ecosystem. AfricaCom is now in its 21st year and is Africa’s largest technology, media and telecommunications conference and exhibition.
The conference programme covers the most strategic issues affecting companies in Africa’s digital market: services, efficiency, profitability, customer experience, partnerships, policy and more. It features several co-located events: 5G Africa, Africa Video Forum, The AI Summit Cape Town and Mission Critical Technologies Africa.
