APO to distribute Uber press releases in sub-Saharan Africa


African Press Organization (APO), the sole press release newswire in Africa and the global leader in media relations relating to Africa, today announced it has been selected as exclusive supplier for press release wire distribution in Africa by Uber sub-Saharan Africa.

Uber provides a smartphone application that connects drivers with people who need a ride. Uber helps people get a ride at the push of a button – there’s no waiting on the street or walking through unfamiliar neighborhoods to find a bus. It’s the most convenient way to get a safe, reliable and affordable ride – the app detects your location, tells you about your driver in advance, and you can pay seamlessly with cash or debit/credit card.

Uber’s press releases will be distributed via Africa Wire, the newswire service for press release distribution and monitoring in Africa.

Used by some of the world’s largest companies, PR agencies, institutions and organisations, APO Africa Wire has a potential reach of 600 million and guarantees the most extensive outreach in Africa, acting as a channel that allows APO’s clients to target audiences in all parts of the continent and also the world.

“We’re excited that APO will be supporting Uber in their expansion in Africa, a continent experiencing a boom in consumer spending, which is set to rise from US $860 billion in 2008 to US $1.4 trillion in 2020”, comments Nicolas Pompigne-Mognard, APO founder and CEO.
