IBC 2012 Countdown Begins

The IBC2012 Conference will be held between 6 - 11 September 2012, at the RAI in Amsterdam.
The conference is set to bring together business leaders and opinion formers to debate, discuss and analyse the latest technological trends, innovation and strategic thinking.
IBC is the leading forum for the electronic media and entertainment industry attracting over 50,000 professionals from more than 160 countries and combines an internationally renowned conference with a first class exhibition featuring the latest media technology innovation.
The IBC Conference attracts the highest calibre of speakers from across the globe: influential professionals in their field who deliver thought provoking insight through a series of conference sessions, master classes and panel discussions. With over 300 inspiring speakers and more than 60 sessions, the IBC2012 Conference is leading the media and broadcast industry through innovation and debate.
This year promises another world class line up of keynote speakers including: Mike Darcey, COO, BSkyB; Mark Hollinger, CEO & President, Discovery Networks; Kevin Mayer, Executive Vice President, Corporate Strategy and Business Development, The Walt Disney Company; Roger Mosey, Director of London 2012, BBC; Brian Sullivan, CEO, Sky Deutschland and Miles Young, CEO, Ogilvy & Mather Worldwide. Together they will lead discussion on the hottest topics affecting the industry now, including Connected TV; the Cloud; Social Media; Sport; Transmedia, Broadcast Delivery and Workflow, enabling delegates to evaluate the challenges and formulate a roadmap for the future.
The Conference Programme is structured around three distinct pillars; the Business of Broadcasting and Media, Content Creation & Innovation and Advances in Technology. Delegates can target specific areas of interest via these carefully constructed Streams alongside the free Industry Insight sessions. They will learn how business models will change as the result of new innovation in technology and extend their knowledge through attending IBC’s highly respected Technical Papers and Posters. The conference is designed to allow delegates to build their own programme by selecting the sessions most relevant to them, ensuring they benefit from the content tailored to their requirements. Participants will come away from the IBC Conference inspired to lead their business to success, better informed on the current state of the industry and with a deeper understanding of its future developments.
The IBC Conference offers the opportunity to maximise networking with hundreds of influential professionals gathered in one place for just a week to meet and share experiences. A key benefit of the Conference is the chance to interact with people from all types of organisations - from small businesses to the world's biggest and most famous companies to local non-profits and enormous government agencies – and discuss the lessons learned from dealing with shared problems.
To enable the greatest possible flexibility, IBC offers a number of attendance options to allow participants to tailor-make their IBC experience to suit all tastes and budgets. IBC offers substantial early bird savings over the entire range of passes, the most exclusive of which is the Gold Pass. With the Gold Pass, delegates are fully immersed in the IBC experience with all-area access to the conference and exhibition and a wide range of exceptional benefits including exclusive access to the VIP Gold Pass Lounge, VIP invitation to the IBC Awards Ceremony and the very best networking opportunities.
