IBC Conference Streams


Digital disruption has increased cord cutting as consumers abandon their TV screens and created opportunities for rights holders and broadcasters to provide the meaningful interaction that the modern day sports consumer wants. The importance of developing a connection between a sport and its supporter base cannot be underestimated, and we will look at how sports and sports media rights can be exploited using the tools available in 2017. From the broadcasting of live events to the evolution of alternative formats for traditional sports, our distinguished panellists will engage the IBC crowd with their expertise on the importance of fan engagement.
