The agenda for Stream Africa 2018 is in your hands. There are six session times a day, hosted in nine different meeting spaces. Each session runs for 1 hour (give or take) and all sessions are led by you, the Stream participants. Here's how it works:

  1. Before Stream - Share your idea - Create a New Discussion by clicking on the blue ‘add idea’ button on the left of this page
  2. Before Stream - Invite others to join you - you can see the participants list at the Participants page.
  3. At Stream - Book a slot - when you arrive on site, write your discussion on the Big Boards

The Stream team is on hand to help. Please get in touch if you'd like to talk an idea through before posting, or would like help finding some co-hosts.

Why AR and VR could really change the world.

We're all talking disruption, but what does that really mean and why could new immersive technologies like AR and VR drive these changes? The history of technology has always been about HOW we tell our stories, but the WHY hasn't changed since the beginning of time: Namely for social, entertainment, educational and commercial reasons. AR and VR will ask us to reach across these verticals and learn lessons from each, to drive truly engaging experiences. For example, entertainment is largely a voluntary activity, but marketing mostly has not been! But Opt In, Experience and Content Marketing are all giving us clues to how people would want to engage with our brands. With VR this challenge is going to be profound because as brands we'll literally need to be invited into our users space, and we'll have to let go of some long held beliefs if we're really going to create valuable communities. "Making the logo bigger" truly is dead.
