Inaugural Advertising Week Africa postponed due to Covid-19

Advertising Week (AW) has announced that the first edition of the Advertising Week Africa (AWAFRICA) has been postponed due to the global coronavirus pandemic. This is the third time an Advertising Week event is being pushed back over the last three years, with AWLATAM in Mexico City postponed to February 2018 due to an earthquake and the Advertising Week Europe postponed to September 2020 due to coronavirus. A new date for AWAFRICA is yet to be announced.

AWAFRICA advisory council chairman Tunji Adeyinka commented: "Africa is at the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic and it is just too early for us to make any reasonable forecast as to when the crisis will have been fully addressed and definitively over. As soon as conditions allow, we will be back and remain committed to bringing the sharpest minds from across the African continent together with their global contemporaries for an outstanding showcase of innovation and creativity."
