DISCOP assists global and regional content distributors, as well as independent producers in their efforts to conduct business in Africa - the world’s last untapped entertainment and media marketplace.

We prepare the groundwork for meetings between these content sellers and the acquisition, programming and coproduction executives representing 700+ content delivery systems; which include public and private broadcasters, premium cable channels, pay-TV operators, mobile and streaming platforms servicing African audiences.

With nearly one and a half billion people, lower internet costs, better infrastructures, rising mobile connectivity and fiber uptake, the desire to improve the regulatory environment will make multi-screen entertainment more readily available and put hundreds of millions of potential customers in play – 75% of them under the age of 25.

Excluding sports rights, content-delivery platforms will spend $1.5 billion in 2019 to acquire films, television programs and digital content – a 50% increase since the beginning of the decade. This uptick in spending coincides with a marked preference for homegrown content that resonates better with local audiences, which in turn creates greater opportunities for an increasing number of regional producers.


We organize two kinds of meetings:

·       FACE TO FACE | These meetings are planned in the context of two annual 3-day content, adaptation rights and project markets taking place in strategic industry hubs:

-       DISCOP Abidjan | Next edition 29 to 31 May 2019. Launched in 2015, this market focuses on French-speaking Africa – an ensemble of 26 countries with a combined population of 300 million people. 200+ content distributors / producers | 200+ content buyers.

-       DISCOP Johannesburg | Next edition 20 to 22 November 2019. Launched in 2015, this market focuses on English, Portuguese and Swahili speaking Africa – an ensemble of 28 countries with a combined population of 1 billion people. 500+ content distributors / producers | 300+ content buyers.

·       REMOTE | These meetings are generated through DISCOP CLUB, an online ‘shopping service’ promoting a wide variety of diverse content available for immediate delivery anywhere in Africa.
