PROGRAMME

Africa as the cradle of humankind constituting a mosaic of peoples and communities, is culturally diversified even within states. It is difficult to talk about the African consumer using the singular form without fearing the consumer society as a synonym of uniformization.
Are local and international brands playing a role in preserving cultural identities and building a trust relationship ?
Considering the socio-economic challenges such as the informal economy, we should be afro-optimistic and keep on taking technological, digital and human leaps that will transform Africa !

Cultures, innovation, mobility and creativity are the watchwords of this edition!
