  • 2 min read

In keeping with its own theme of “Challenge yourself”, Africa’s biggest marketing conference has delivered an agenda that confirms its reputation as the continent’s most innovative marketing gathering.

“When we launched the event, we committed to a ‘no death by power point or sales pitch format’” says IMC CEO Dale Hefer. The one day, one stream agenda has over 25 top speakers delivering hard hitting presentations in the short format presentation the conference has become known for. “This agenda is relevant to anyone in the business of communication, irrespective of designation or discipline’.
