The 2018 topical conference sessions are a wide-open window into the new, the futuristic and the now. The entrepreneurial and talented Pan African media proprietor and agency owner Rosie Motene reveals all about successfully breaking into the African market. Game changers such as Donovan Goliath, David Kau, Takunda Bimha and the talented and effervescent Nina Hastie explore the fastest growing African entertainment genre, comedy. Digital and new technology is always at the heart of SEAfrica’s content, and this year technology and its impact on the industry is unpacked by an IT and legal specialist, Rohan Isaacs. Look out for other mouth-watering sessions that feature industry leaders and high achievers such as Gregory Maqoma, Stanley Khoza, Black Coffee’s Soulistic Music team and many more. We also have something for today’s marketer (across all industries) who is looking to do business unusual.

The exhibition floor is a perfect hunting place for show producers, promoters and event managers looking for new and innovative suppliers. Exhibitors (industry suppliers) will be exhibiting cutting edge equipment, venue spaces, artistic expressions and many more. You will be exposed to companies such as Waka Agency, Global Access, and facilities of Joburg Theatre etc. As business or talent you will also gain access to critical support information and connect on future partnerships with various funding agencies and associations.
