The Electronic Media Content Owners Association of Nigeria (EMCOAN) has partnered with Broadcast Media Africa (BMA) to host Nigeria’s first content market expo titled “Nigerian Electronic Media Content Expo and Awards (NEMCEA2022)”. It will take place from Tuesday 30th to Thursday 1st September 2022 in Lagos, Nigeria.
The motivation for this inaugural event is the ongoing rapid digital transformation and how it has changed the way consumers interact with content, thereby instructing the way we create, distribute and deliver in Africa.
The statement issued by the co-conveners said that “the founding of the inaugural trade exhibition, conference and awards aims to create an interactive platform for media and entertainment bodies. NEMCEA2022 will bring together content creators, producers, commissioners, aggregators and marketing executives from production houses, advertising bodies, pay-tv broadcasters, as well as broadcasting and streaming services.
Speaking on the concept behind NEMCEA2022, Mr Benjamin Pius, Publisher of Broadcast Media Africa (BMA), said: “NEMCEA2022 will allow for the discovery and access to the new realities of today’s media and entertainment environment by offering the tools to elevate the art of storytelling in the digital ecosystem.”
EMCOAN’s President, Mrs Jibe Ologeh, as event co-convener, also highlighted that the thematic focus of the NEMCEA2022 is to unlock return-on-investment (ROI) for content through a mix of technology, partnerships and above all, creative talent.
