Asian Media Event Relocates To Hong Kong

Asia Pacific's largest broadband and media event is relocating to Hong Kong.
Broadband Asia & TV Connect Asia 2013 is expected to attract thousands of decision-makers from across the region.
As the event’s official Host Operator Partners, Hong Kong’s leading operators PCCW and HKT are strong supporters of the conference and exhibition. The event also has support from CSL, Pacnet and the Commerce and Economic Development Bureau for Hong Kong.
Now in its ninth year, Broadband Asia & TV Connect Asia welcomes PCCW and HKT, as HKT’s Group Managing Director, Alex Arena, is set to provide the host keynote.
Mr Arena comments: "PCCW and HKT are very excited to have this event return to Hong Kong where we look forward to greeting a wide range of delegates from across the region and beyond. This is a highly valuable opportunity for us all to meet new partners, discover new business opportunities, benchmark your own business and to gain insight into the hottest topics facing the broadband and TV industry in the Asia Pacific region."
Miss Susie Ho, Permanent Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development (Communications and Technology) at Hong Kong’s Commerce and Economic Development Bureau will open the conference and exhibition with a Ministerial Welcome Address.
Co-located with TV Connect Asia, the conference and exhibition will highlight new developments in TV and broadband, bringing together the two ecosystems and their leading figures from across the region.
The two-day event is made up of two programme tracks which complement each other to reflect the nature of the converging broadband and connected entertainment industry. Day one will address fixed access evolution, mobile and wireless opportunities, business models, the digital home, making TV multi-screen, and effective content delivery management, while day two will focus on leveraging broadband networks, capacity and accessibility, effective TV delivery and content business strategies. Combined keynotes will take place across both days with C-level speakers, including CSL, Celestial Tiger Entertainment, Youku Tudou, Hulu, Telstra, Telecom New Zealand and KT (Korea Telecom).
The conference and exhibition will take place at the Kowloon Shangri-La, Hong Kong, from 9-10 April. To view the full event programme and register for Broadband Asia & TV Connect Asia, visit asia.broadbandworldforum.com
