Highway Africa Conference 2005 'Reinforcing journalism in the information society'**
(Highway Africa) --
The Highway Africa 2005 will explore the above issues and seek to assist in overcoming the challenges. Highway Africa’s programme includes a unique mix of plenary and keynote presentations, panel discussions and hands-on workshops where delegates acquire practical skills and expertise.
The event is simultaneously an arena for academic discussion and research, a venue for presenting media and government strategy, a forum for journalistic networking, and an occasion for professional skills transfer.
Exhibitions are a growing feature, and provide an opportunity for exposure of various services and products.
The conference also features the Highway Africa Awards for Innovative Use of New Media in Africa and an award ceremony that is televised live across the continent by SABC Africa. Experimental media production is a regular feature of the conference, where new technologies are tried and tested in reporting the action at the event.
