Closing the NexTV CEO Africa 2018 chapter with grandeur and gratitude


On the 2nd, 3rd and 4th of May, took place the third edition of NexTV CEO Africa 2018 organised by Dataxis.

The event brought together key players within the African TV and Digital entertainment industry together for 3 days of dynamic conferencing and intense networking. NexTV CEO Africa is not the usual conference, Dataxis took networking activities to a whole new level. Representatives of private and public broadcasters, telcos, OTT players and tech suppliers had the chance to network with their potential partners on Catamaran cruises and Golf sessions.

The conference kicked off with a strong session about powerful women in Africa within the TV industry with Peace Hyde from Forbes Africa, Chinenye Jeanne-Nnoli CEO of Metrowoman and Delmwa Deshi Kura, CEO at DelMedia. To stay within the team of successful women in the media, we had a live performance of Chiano Sky, a shooting star from South Africa. Attendees were also treated with a rocking performance by Moonchild Sanelly for the after party on day 2. The interesting speaking sessions line up of the 3 days have compelled the attendees to stay put for the insightful debates. With 10 panel discussions and 13 one-to-one sessions, the conference has provided a platform for our experts to share their grounded knowledge with the participants.

NexTV CEO Africa 2018 saw many deals being made, one of the major ones being a content deal between the TVC Communications and the BBC. The purpose of the conference was well served, sponsors, speakers and attendees all agreed that the event was commendable. The networking activities and the astute discussions within such an exquisite environment fostered the right mindset promoting business lead generations with a more relaxed entente between participants.

Dataxis wants to extend its gratitude to all the sponsors, speakers and delegates without whom this event would not have been possible. The Dataxis team promise to take the NexTV CEO Africa 2019 to a whole new level, follow us on social media to know more.
