The ultimate thought leadership platform.
Conference Promotional Opportunities
The world of media, entertainment and technology is constantly changing and as it does the nature of the issues, complexities and opportunities for vendors and operators evolves.
Content at the IBC Conference is refreshed each year, in line with the industries represented. In addition to discussions on trends affecting traditional broadcasters, our audience also wants a greater understanding of how emerging markets such as OTT, VR, AI and IP will impact on the industry.
Conference programming for 2019 has been designed to reflect this fluid environment. This ensures continued attendance by our core audience, as well as attracting new attendees from across the full media technology spectrum and from new industry verticals.
Alongside branding and networking packages at the IBC Conference, this year IBC have introduced a unique and exciting opportunity for our clients to hold their own programmes and sessions alongside the IBC Conference. These events allow sponsors to demonstrate thought-leadership, discuss the challenges, opportunities and issues most important to them, present tech advancements, launch products and announce new partnerships and initiatives.
IBC will work closely with the sponsor to produce the programme and generate an engaged audience, aligning their programme with the IBC brand and collaboratively delivering an event that meets their goals and objectives.
Please contact the Sales Team to find out more information.
For the first time, you are now able to hold their own event alongside the main IBC Conference allowing you to promote your company, product, insight or initiative on the international stage. Depending on your budget and requirements IBC will support you in the curation of content for your sessions, recruiting speakers and securing an engaged audience.
