Telco & Media Innovation Forum 2019 Programme

Thursday 12 September 2019

Reshaping the digital landscape.

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. 

As consumers become increasingly astute and demanding, the Forum will examine what this 5G enabled ecosystem will look like, how collaboration is key and the converging worlds of telcos, broadcasters and the wider media industry can effectively reach the end user by forming positive partnerships.
