An entertainment and technology tradeshow is set to hit Johannesburg later this year, bringing together all the biggest names in this sector.

The Mediatech tradeshow is to take place at the Dome at Northgate in Johannesburg from 15 to 17 July.


“Mediatech is Africa’s premiere trade show in this arena and many exhibitors in the live entertainment technology, AV systems integration, broadcast, film, production, post-production, animation and new media, studio and recording and pro DJ equipment sectors will have their wares on display.

“This creates an open platform to showcase new products and technologies and sets the stage for effective networking,” say Mediatech.
