25 - 27 October 2017

Launched in 2012, DISCOP Johannesburg has become the world’s number one destination to acquire and co-produce content “Made in Africa” and sell international film, television and digital content, adaptation rights and packaged TV channels into Sub-Saharan Africa. 1,000+ acquisition, development, production and distribution executives from 70+ countries will converge in Johannesburg for three days of deal-making, knowledge-transfer and networking opportunities. 250+ public and commercial broadcasters, cable, satellite and mobile pay-tv operators, VOD platforms and territorial distributors servicing the fast-growing Sub-Saharan marketplace will also be in attendance seeking innovative content, fresh ideas and cross-border projects.

According to IDATE, growth in Sub-Sharan Africa, the world’s fastest-growing entertainment marketplace, is set to expand by 30% in the next five years, delivering close to US$10 billion in consumer revenues by 2021. The number of Pay-Tv subscribers is also set to virtually double in five years, alongside the rise of OTT video services. Untapped advertising revenues also represents a source of potential growth for Sub-Saharan Africa.

DISCOP Johannesburg will take place at Sandton Convention Center, Africa’s #1 convention center flanked by a number of leading hotels, sophisticated shopping centres and entertainment complexes.

The 3-day agenda will include a market centered on pre-organized meetings between content buyers, sellers and producers; a sidebar training, deal-building, and pitching program; and a rich line-up of networking events. Germany will be DISCOP Johannesburg’s ‘Guest Country’.
