Daily Maverick will host the 5th edition of The Gathering on 10 June 2016 at Vodaworld from 8am to 5pm. It focuses exclusively on the upcoming local elections, bringing together South Africa's top politicos and putting them under the spotlight of the Daily Maverick's experienced team of journalists.
Confirmed speakers include Pravin Gordhan, Cyril Ramaphosa, Mmusi Maimane, Julius Malema, Jay Naidoo, Sisonke Msimang, Iraj Abedian, Ranjeni Munusamy, Herman Mashaba, Floyd Shivambu, Parks Tau, Marianne Thamm, Stephen Grootes and Mark Heywood.
Styli Charalambous, CEO and publisher of Daily Maverick says, “It’s been surreal to watch the growth of this event from its first iteration in front of 150 people into the juggernaut it is today. We could not get bigger names to an event like this and every year seems to improve on the high standards set before. People are blown away by the intensity, passion and vibe this event seems to create. From the speakers, performers and even the attendees, the buzz is like nothing you have ever experienced at a conference. Unlike other events, you won’t want to miss a single session.”
Speakers are offered a short opportunity to address the audience, before the team of journalists do what they do best - interrogate and evaluate. Keeping things edgy, in true Daily Maverick style, the event is hosted by John Vlismas with serious discussions interspersed with doses of culture and satire from Lebo Mashile and Deep Fried Man.
