The Creative Economy deals with the interface between creativity, culture, economics and technology in a contemporary world dominated by images, sounds, texts and symbols. The creative industries are among the most dynamic sectors in the world economy, providing new opportunities for developing countries to leapfrog into emerging high-growth areas.

Registration fees for the conference are R2239/delegate from Africa, R3278/delegate from Central, America, South America or Asia, and R6000/delegate from Europe, North America, Australia, New Zealand and the Middle East.
