Discop Africa, a pivotal content, production and distribution exhibition, is increasing exhibition space to cater to 300 international sellers of finished TV content, adaptation rights and branded TV channels who will be attending the event from 5 to 7 November at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg.

The industry demand marks a 20% increase above 2013 figures.

Patrick Zuchowicki, General Manager of event organisers, Basic Lead says: Africa is the world s fastest growing TV and online business marketplace. We estimate the Continent to be worth half a billion dollars in revenue for the international content business, twice as much as just three years ago.

The forthcoming ninth edition of Discop Africa will host a series of high level conferences measuring the current level of development of Television in Africa, as well as a 20 years of democracy / 20 years of television in Africa summit which will be organized in partnership with the Ministry of Arts and Culture of the Republic of South Africa.

In an initiative to create awareness, Discop Africa has signed on to support Malaria No More, a non-profit organization which is determined to end malaria deaths in Africa. This will allow Malaria No More the opportunity to exhibit and deliver a presentation highlighting its work to more than 2000 attending delegates.

Gary Ginsburg, EVP Corporate Marketing & Communications at Time Warner Inc. and Board member of Malaria No More comments: Malaria No More s new partnership with Discop Africa presents the opportunity to leverage the power of media to raise awareness of malaria and save lives. Since 2000, the malaria mortality rate has fallen 51% among children under the age of five, but we still have our work cut out for us. As partners, we will encourage media leaders to sign on to support the campaign and rally their viewers to end malaria deaths.
