Elevating Media Measurement and Evaluation in a Resilient Africa is the theme of this year’s conference, which is a two-day hybrid affair – a welcome change after meeting virtually for the previous two years. 

In-person attendees will convene at the Radisson Blu Waterfront Conference Centre in Cape Town. 

During the conference experts will share their successes, challenges and failures in a quest to help delegates learn from one another in order to build better strategies for doing business in Africa. The conference allows the sharing of invaluable insights from leading players, assisting in improving the industry as a whole. 

Panel discussions, case studies and papers

Conference sessions will encompass a variety of formats including panel discussions, case studies, presentation of papers and outcomes from media audience research activities.

Attending the conference, whether in person or virtually, will give delegates a greater understanding of elevated media practices in Africa, consumer behaviour insights, global media trends and challenges, and meaningful research methodologies, as well as allow them to glean strategic recommendations from industry leaders.

Writing in a previous issue of Strategic Marketing for Africa, the magazine of the African Marketing Confederation (AMC), Pamro’s President, Dr Sifiso Falala, explained that it is an Africa-wide member-based organisation aimed at promoting co-operation and uniformity in elevating the quality of research throughout the continent.

Through its annual conference, it attracts some of the foremost researchers and speakers from throughout the world. The 2021 conference was themed Finding Certainty in Uncertain Times Through Measurement’
