The media industry in Egypt is undergoing a heavy, quick and sometimes hectic transformations, especially moving online now. Several reasons are behind this due to cultural, political & economic factors and also due to a new young enthusiastic generation that consume news and content mostly online, especially on social media and from their smart phones!
This meetup is fourth in a row, where we dig deeper in the importance of online content, especially video. This time we are very focused on the media industry in Egypt as we see huge potential if online video is better utilized through dedicated streaming platforms, and content distribution techniques.
Again, this meetup is a casual event and everybody is invited. You can be a media entrepreneur or someone working for the largest newspaper or broadcaster in the region, please join us, share your experience and extend your network!
