The conference is directed towards the media, advertising and marketing sectors - where media platforms provide the vehicles for brands to reach and engage with increasingly tech-savvy and discerning audiences.
Times Media has engaged leading international figure Juan Senor, partner at Innovation Media Consultants, to deliver the opening presentation at the conference. Senor has global experience in working with media brands ‘to reinvent their editorial models, strategies, products, design, newsrooms, workflows and narratives for the digital age’.
Pepsi Pokane (MD, Bonngoe TV), Toby Shapshak (editor-in-chief and publisher, Stuff) and Jeremy Maggs (presenter, eNCA & Power FM, contributor, Financial Mail) will moderate the panel discussions.
Partners who are hosting activations alongside Times Media include Everlytic, GfK South Africa, TimeOneGroup, BrandsEye, TNS, Mortimer Harvey, Millward Brown, and Kena Outdoor.
Ormerod concludes, “We’re no longer waiting for the digital dawn, but rather standing in its midday sun. Every facet of media, communication and advertising is being touched by the opportunities that advanced technology presents. Exploring new technologies and processes to steer the South African media environment forward successfully is what the Future of Media Conference is all about.”
