About Digicon

Blu Flamingo Digital has for the past three years organised and run the Social Media Awards (SMA’s). The awards ceremony was a prestigious event at which individuals and organizations at the forefront of using digital media for business, entertainment, change, sharing of ideas, creating communities and reaching customers online were awarded for their excellence in various categories namely – best customer care, innovation, apps, blogs, brand and many more.

This year, we are taking it a notch higher by carefully crafting a digital skills experience – dubbed: DigiCon Conference. At the conference, you will:
 • Connect with media and brand specialists that can help you fine tune your integrated digital media strategy.
 • Align digital marketing and technology with overall business goals.

It is a one day conference on the 5th of May, 2017, at the Golf Course Hotel, Kampala, featuring master classes in content, advertising /media buying, social reporting and strategy. The day is crowned by an event that will feature; speakers, case studies and a panel awarding “The DIGICON MASTERS” – in recognition for some of the best digital work of 2016.
