Following two years of hosting this growing annual event as the Brand Summit South Africa, organisers have decided to respond favourably to growing calls for the event’s programmatic and thematic content to cover image and reputation issues that have relevance for the entire African continent. Calls have also been made for the brand summit to create more opportunities for delegates, who have come from AfricaEastern and Western Europe, North-America and Asia, to see more of the summit’s host city and region, as well as gain exposure to business opportunities that might exist in them.
