IBC Startup Forum Sponsorship Opportunities -2018


Please note the 2017 launch event is now finished and will take place again in September 2018.

The launch event took place on Sunday 17 September and consisted of a curated one day programme of facilitated business meetings, incisive keynotes, pitching, panel sessions and networking. The event was a great success, receiving excellent post show feedback.

"The IBC Startup Forum – Media Honeypot was not the typical startup forum. Focusing on quality over quantity, Startups had the opportunity to connect to partners and customers like never before."
– Jose Rodriguez Martinez, Amazon Web Services

"...the perfect setup to meet many international clients in just one day."
– Paul Bojarski, Sceenic
