Conference

When Russia invaded Ukraine in February of this year, the industry sprang into action to help in any way it could. One initiative was Support for Ukrainian Media Professionals which, with backing from broadcast vendors and integrators, identified employment opportunities for refugees, helped people leave the war-hit country, assisted those still in Ukraine and more. The group was recently recognised with a Special Award from IBC for its efforts. 

In this Exclusive Interview, we speak to Phillip Covell, a UK-based consultant and co-founder of the group about how it started, what impact it's had and where support is still needed.
