By fostering groups of media thought leaders working towards common goals, AMI facilitates media organisations to collectively elevate the debate about the future of the industry, create synergies between media houses, and together represent a “big voice” that can be heard loud and clear. AMI’s flagship annual event, the African Media Leaders Forum (AMLF) has become the largest media event in the African continent, bringing Africa’s top media leaders together with political leaders, development partners, technology experts, investors and civil society to address challenges that affect the industry, to network, and to define and share best practices.
Since 2008, AMLF has grown from 55 participants in 2008 when it first met in Dakar, Senegal, to 185 participants in 2009 at the Lagos Forum in Nigeria, to over 250 participants in 2010 in Yaoundé, Cameroon, to 350 delegates in 2011 in Tunis, Tunisia, to 555 delegates in 2012 in Dakar, Senegal. At its last event over 600 delegates in 2013 attended the Forum in Addis Ababa from 54 African countries. . AMLF 2014 host country will be announced soon.
