Namibia will host the 5th Africa and Digitization Conference and the 25th Anniversary of the Southern Africa Broadcasting Association (SABA), later this month, a SABA official said here Tuesday.

The conference, scheduled for Sept. 25-29 in the Namibian capital Windhoek, will bring together over 150 leaders in broadcasting, satellite services, online distribution channels, telecom operators, and regulators from Africa and beyond, said SABA Secretary General Ellen Nanuses.

The theme of the conference will be “Transformational Leadership During a Time of Digital Transition,” Nanuses said.

Nanuses said the first event will start with a two-day forum aimed at reviewing progress made among member states of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) in their digital terrestrial television (DTT) migration, Post-DTT successes and challenges.

During the conference, participants will also discuss the evolution of broadcasting and the next business frontier — going mobile.

SABA was founded in 1993, with members coming from 15 member states of the SADC. Its members include public broadcasters, regulators and service providers in media and content development. Enditem
