Conference registration fees are Euro 210 for members and Euro 250 for non-members, while the annual general meeting which precedes the conference will be restricted to PAMRO members only.

Founded in 1999, PAMRO has as its key objectives, the creation of a forum for industry bodies, media research providers, media owners, marketers and advertising agencies in different African countries to exchange knowledge, to learn from one another's successes and failures, to ensure the highest quality and to harmonize research methodologies so that eventually we will enjoy a continental media research database. This will make Africa the world leader in providing a research database for the growing number of global media owners, marketers and agencies. Starting with a base of only a handful of members at its founding in 1999, PAMRO now boasts a network encompassing nearly two thirds of sub-Saharan African nations, including several Francophone countries and some from The Indian Ocean Islands.
