1:30PM: SESSION TWO
The following sessions will have three breakaway discussions happening simultaneously.
1. On-demand content distribution: Opportunity for film & music, or just a passing cloud?
With digital transition and the entry of numerous pay TV, film and music streaming platforms, there is an emerging argument that the future of content distribution (film, music etc) is on-demand. This session will explore whether this argument is true within the Kenyan (East African) market.
2. Future-proofing Kenya creative business: Is there a winning strategy?
The demand for unique and memorable consumer experiences is growing, and the creative business is responding to this. The session shall engage key business leaders who have established successful experience products.
3. East African fashion business prospects: What next after mtumba (used clothes)?

3:00PM: SESSION THREE
