Daily Maverick is pleased to confirm the addition of another world-class event to hugely successful “The Gathering” events series. The Media Edition aims to bring the importance of media to the fore of South African society by highlighting its role at the intersection of Business, Politics, Advertising and Civil Society.
This is not a media conference but rather a conference about media, tackling the issues of government regulatory attempts, fake news, waning business models and the duty of business to support local independent media in a time of dominance by global players.
The full-day event will be held at the Cape Town International Convention Centre, on Thursday, 3rd August 2017. Speakers include:
Pravin Gordhan, Wendy Appelbaum, Mike Abel, Mcebisi Jonas, Luke McKend, Jay Naidoo, Iqbal Survé, Branko Brkic, Mark Heywood, Sipho Pityana, Sam Sole, Phumzille van Damme, Mbuyiseni Ndlovu and a special panel on #GuptaLeaks.
Panels will be moderated by Daily Maverick and media partner, EWN, journos.
Tickets go on sale Tuesday 20th June.
