Theme: Connecting ideas

A year the entire globe went still. With the pandemic owning the streets we didn't back down but took the event online. Having no clue of how to manage a virtual event had the team spooked but ready for whatever was to come. The program run for 9 days having panel discussions from participants across the African continent shinning a light on the African industry.

The theme for the year was "Connecting ideas" and we did our best to draw creatives from West & South Africa, the horn of Africa who all all exhibited their amazing skill to the rest of the world. Being online the number of guest trippled our usual physical events by far. The event gained recognition across sub Saharan Africa and is still readily available on demand to date.
