CASBAA Convention 2011 – TV365: Watch Closely!
Hong Kong, 17 June 2011 – The CASBAA flagship annual meeting, The CASBAA Convention, will be staged at the Grand Hyatt hotel, Hong Kong Oct 31st– Nov 3, 2011.
Themed TV365: Watch Closely, the programme for 2011 explores television in the myriad ways it can be experienced – 365 days a year…in more than 365 million multichannel TV homes throughout Asia…on a full 360° range of platforms and devices.
“This year’s theme truly reflects the evolution of the multichannel TV industry in Asia – a fitting topic especially during this year, CASBAA’s 20th Anniversary. Now, more than ever, the concept of television has been stretched to encompass technologies not even dreamed of back in 1991,” said Simon Twiston Davies, CEO, CASBAA. “This year’s Convention programme promises to be better than ever with a comprehensive line-up of compelling industry keynote speakers.”
With video content now truly transportable, consumer driven demand and the prospect of more localization is providing a compelling storyline.
“In the new paradigm, consumers will do what it takes to get the content they want to see if we don’t make it accessible,” stressed Twiston Davies. “More than ever before, the regulator is now both the weather-maker and the barometer shaping how the industry will change and develop in the future.”
The four-day CASBAA Convention 2011 will bring together operators, content providers, satellite services, technology, carriers and ad agencies from across Asia and the world in lively debate and exchange of information through Keynote addresses, In Conversation sessions and panel discussions. Networking breakfasts, lunches and official receptions allow delegates to connect with their peers in informal social settings and to forge new partnerships.
The CASBAA Convention 2011 is generously sponsored by APT, CNBC Asia Pacific, Discovery Networks Asia-Pacific, Eurosport, Globecast, Intelsat, MEASAT, MTV, Paul Weiss, Playboy TV, RRsat, SES WORLD SKIES and Synovate.
