The 2018 edition of the World Media Economics and Management Conference seeks to interrogate the business, management and leadership strategies of the current media industry.
The WMEMC is hosted by the Sol Plaatje Institute for Media Leadership and Rhodes University. It aims to gauge their relevance and effectiveness in an age where international digital media conglomerates are increasingly displacing traditional media in the creation, value-addition and dissemination of media content to audiences.
