It's just 3 Days until WOO’s first Africa Forum in Cape Town, South Africa : March 11th – 13th

PROGRAMME AVAILABLE BELOW - REGISTRATION CLOSES ON MONDAY MARCH 11TH

WOO's very first Regional Forum, with over 200 delegates, was held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, in October 2022. We prepare to welcome at least as many delegates to our 4th Regional Forum in Cape Town, South Africa.

This Forum will give delegates one and a half days of presentations on the Expanding World of Out of Home from Media Owners, Buyers, Tech Suppliers and Clients. Some of the highlights include:

  • Day One (Tuesday): will focus on all aspects of driving sector growth in Out of Home including the Keynote Session from Lunga Ngcime Mooi - Director of Digital Marketing, Media and Commerce, Unilever as well as a session on OOH Creativity from Jay Young, Managing Director of Grand Visual, Talon’s creative agency.

    Dawn Rowlands, CEO of dentsu Africa, and Greg Benatar, Managing Director of Alliance Media, will deliver separate presentations covering the diversity of African OOH from an agency and media owner’s perspective while Jorja Wilkins will be looking at how OOH is addressing the challenge of sustainability across the continent.

    For international context, Ocean Outdoor CEO Tim Bleakley will give his unique perspective on global developments in the OOH market.  WOO President Tom Goddard will lead a panel addressing the challenge of growing the OOH alongside Martin Sabbagh, CEO, Middle East & Africa, JCDecaux and Jacques Du Preez, Founder and CEO of the Provantage Group.

    Gideon Adey and an experienced panel of buyers and measurement practitioners will close the day looking at the challenges of developing OOH Audience Measurement across Africa.

  • Day Two (Wednesday): will focus on the Science of OOH and highlight the growing impact of data, automation and programmatic buying of OOH. Starting the Day, Polygon’s Remi Du Preez will present "Preparing for an Omni-Channel World". Other presentations will look at OOH’s pivotal role as part of a broader media mix including Sevita Savita Mbuli,MD, Growth Media and Siphosihle Mbuli from the BBOA plus Stacy Saggers, Commercial Growth Director at Kantar, who will present her Media Mix Masterclass!

    A programmatic panel chaired by Simon Wall of Tractor Outdoor will look at the development of programmatic across the continent while Nigel Clarkson of TapTap will look at how DOOH can lead omni-channel programmatic advertising in a post-cookie world. At the heart of these sessions will be a focus on how we can make OOH easier to buy.

    Donald Mokgale, Managing Director at Avatar Media Agency, will bring proceedings to a close. His presentation will touch on many of the key themes of the Forum whilst drawing on his own passion for the medium and vision for the future development of OOH across Africa.

WOO CMO Richard Saturley says: "The Africa Forum in Cape Town, South Africa is shaping to be a fascinating insight into Out of Home on the African continent and the whole media landscape in that rapidly-developing and dynamic region.

"We have attracted an unmatched line-up of speakers representing many of the voices in the African business community. It is a landmark event for WOO and, we hope, for the media industry in Africa too.
