NEMCEA is an acronym for Nigeria Electronic Media Content Exhibition & Awards, it is Nigeria’s No.1 Market Place for the discovery and exchange of TV, Radio, and Media Content, the first media content exhibition/market in Nigeria being championed by our great association EMCOAN ELECTRONIC MEDIA CONTENT OWNERS ASSOCIATION OF NIGERIA.
NEMCEA is a very important and strategic Media content event that we plan to hold annually to bring together global stakeholders in the Media industry within and outside Nigeria to buy, sell, collaborate, aggregate, exchange ideas on content, and also bring to fore issues and perspectives bordering on the media industry in Nigeria in particular and across Africa as a whole. We started last year (2022) and it is of great importance to note that the maiden edition was off the roof in terms of quality of participation, engagement, business layout, content acquisition processes, submission for the awards, and other layers of marker of a successful event.
It is noteworthy that despite being the biggest content generation hub of Africa, Nigeria has no content market to cater to its ever-growing electronic media content and film industry, this is the vacuum NEMCEA has started to fill.
Being an annual event, it serves as a marketplace for the trading of media content, film, and development of co-production partnerships locally and internationally.
Who and who are we expecting to be part of this annual gathering? They include content providers/makers, producers of TV/Radio/Online content, programme/channel managers, acquisition and development executives, content distributors, festival directors, financiers, film/content commissioners, agents, advertising agencies, media planning & buying agents, policy regulators, attorneys, buyers, exhibitors, directors, writers, media executives, and all those who provide services to the content/media and motion picture industry.
