By M4G Bureau - November 20, 2023
The Africa Forum will take place on March 11-13, 2024 at Westin Cape Town hotel in the shadow of Table Mountain and overlooking Table Bay
The World Out of Home Organization will hold its first in-person Africa Regional Forum in Cape Town, South Africa, from March 11-13, 2024. This follows a highly successful APAC regional Forum in Bali November this year and an online Africa event in 2022. The recent Bali Forum attracted a record 350 delegates for a WOO regional event.
The Africa Forum will take place in the five-star Westin Cape Town hotel in the shadow of Table Mountain and overlooking Table Bay.
WOO President Tom Goddard says: "Our regional Forums have transformed the way WOO communicates with and on behalf of the wider Out of Home world and we expect our newly-announced Africa Forum to bring still more people into the WOO family.
"Africa is a tremendously important market with OOH playing a major role in the wider media market. Our online event in 2022 received great support and going to Cape Town in person early in 2024 realises a big ambition for our organization."
Simon Wall, CEO of South Africa's Tractor Media Holdings says: "The resurgence of Cape Town's economy post-COVID has been remarkable, and we are genuinely honoured by WOO's choice of Cape Town as the inaugural location for their Africa Forum. "Our city is home to some of the most forward-thinking tech and advertising businesses, making it the perfect setting to convene Africa's leading minds in these sectors.
"This decision reflects the Mother City's ambitious positioning, emphasizing its stature not merely as a world-class economic hub but also as an extraordinary location for the exchange of ideas and contacts."
