A dedicated programme within the IBC Executive Forums, the Telco & Media Innovation Forum will explore reshaping the digital landscape.

As 5G becomes a reality across the entire ecosystem and the shift towards using data to manage assets and resource efficiently continues, the impact is widespread and varied; from watching content on your mobile device to in-vehicle entertainment, from making your home smarter and safer to embedding IoT solutions across Smart City initiatives and technologies, where a plethora of enabled networks communicate with each other, the possibilities are endless. 

The IBC Executive Forums will take place on Thursday 12 September 2019.

Benefits of Attending

  • A unique invitation-only event with senior executives from both inside and outside the broadcast ecosystem mean delegates will connect with peers and leave with invaluable connections they wouldn’t find elsewhere.
  • Focused on the needs of broadcasters, IBC’s curated Executive Forum programmes examine the changing the rules of broadcasting and consumption - who will survive and thrive as business models are forced to evolve and companies learn to adapt to new realities?
  • Unsurpassed formal and informal intimate networking opportunities with senior level peers allowing delegates to share and exchange ideas and concepts which are difficult to achieve at large scale events.
  • New for 2019 – all three Executive Forum programmes will take place on the same day with the same timings and a shared opening keynote to create an 'Executive Club feel'.
