Talent Programme

Bringing the industry together to bridge the looming talent gap in media and broadcast.


Following extensive research, IBC has been examining what it can do to help the media and broadcast industry address this talent gap. Attracting and retaining diverse talent, along with addressing various skills shortages remains a huge problem for the industry and IBC is planning a programme of sessions dedicated to how we can work together tackle this problem.

Working with key stakeholders, partners and the IBC owners we’ll examine the benefits of partnerships and mentoring, best practices for promoting the industry to the next generation, how to drive engagement from all and where the long-term solutions should and will come from. This programme of sessions will be free to attend for all IBC attendees and exhibitors on Monday, 16 September in the Showcase Theatre in Hall 8.
