Africa Media Leadership Conference

Nachhaltige Geschäftsmodelle im digitalen Zeitalter

Leading African media executives are preparing to gather in Tanzania in September, for the 2010 edition of our Africa Media Leadership Conference (AMLC). This year’s summit will focus on finding “Sustainable Media Business Models in the Digital Age”.


The gathering represents a key opportunity for Africa’s top media leaders to discuss strategic, operational and other challenges in a fast-changing and digitalising media landscape. Since its inception in 2002, the conferences have developed into an annual high-level forum for strategy formulation, networking and sharing by senior African executives of print, broadcast, online and converged media.

Past AMLC summits have debated timely topics such as “Managing Media in a Recession” (Mauritius, 2002); “South Meets East: Strategic Challenges for African Media” (Nairobi, Kenya, 2006); and “Learning from the Future: Africa’s Media Map in 2029” (Accra, Ghana, 2009).

The AMLC series - now in its ninth year - is the foremost pan-African gathering of senior media professionals on the African continent, and is hosted annually by the Media Programme for Sub-Saharan Africa and Rhodes University’s Sol Plaatje Institute for Media Leadership (SPI).
