Delegates will have access to the full spread of activities at this year’s event, which includes plenary sessions featuring keynote speeches, breakaway sessions which allow for more focus on the issues being discussed and the popular “Hot Seats” where controversial – but important – topics affecting the South African music industry are put in the spotlight.

Alongside the conference, an exhibition will take place, showcasing a wide spectrum of private and public organisations from the South African music industry.   Informative and relevant panel discussions, extended hours and a variety of fringe events means that Moshito ’08 is a not-to-be-missed event for all industry stakeholders.

The project is pleased to announce a new partnership with the Gauteng Provincial Government, Department of Sport, Arts, Culture and Recreation.   Moshito also enjoys the ongoing support of the City of Joburg and the Department of Arts and Culture.
