The Future of Media Conference began as a simple talk shop for media agencies, media owners and brands to engage and discuss the fault-lines in their relationship. Did the agencies really understand the audiences they were buying for?  Were the media platforms flexible enough in their strategy to cater for a fast-changing media environment?  Were the media owners and agencies looking after the best interest of the brands?

While the above philosophies remain a central pillar of the event, it has now grown substantially to become the annual meeting place and melting pot for the country’s media and marketing practitioners.

Over the past four years, the Future of Media Conference has focused on each of the six main media platforms within their individual silos, but now, the time has come for considered integration that is aimed at best benefitting the industry in its entirety from one single vantage point.

The Future of Media Conference provides a unique networking opportunity to engage with the broader community of media buyers, media owners, brand managers and marketing managers – all whilst offering an engaging and exciting platform where knowledge and experience is shared by all who attend.

The collective ad-spend of all the brands present at the Future of Media Conference in 2015, amounted to more than R2 billion! You’d therefore be at a loss not to be in the room this 2016. Just imagine the possibilities…
