IBC Owners

IBC is run by the industry, for the industry. Six leading international bodies are the organisations behind IBC, representing both exhibitors and visitors. Their insights ensure that the annual convention is always relevant, comprehensive and timely. It is with their support that IBC remains the leading international forum for everyone involved in content creation, management and delivery. 

Each year at the show these owners deliver a multitude of free-to-attend sessions at the show, covering a wide variety of topics from the latest industry standards and strategies for business transformation to defining future networks and building new broadcast infrastructures.
