IBC Content Everywhere MENA, the new event for the Middle East and North Africa, is now open for registrations. Designed to deliver a new way to do business and offering unprecedented networking opportunities, the event takes place at the Madinat Jumeirah in Dubai, 20-22 January 2015.
The region represents a huge media market. Analysts predict 77% annual growth in mobile data traffic in the Middle East to 2017. Much of this growth will come from media, so the time is right for a new event targeting content and broadband delivery.
IBC has already secured ASBU (Arab States Broadcasting Union) as a Gold Supporter, Dubai Media City and Etisalat as Host Sponsors, and a list of exhibitors which includes Cisco, Nvidia, Quantel, Aspera, Irdeto, Vimond and Content Wise alongside the players who have shaped the regional media landscape.
Among the unique attractions planned for the event is the first display in the region of 120 fps 8K Super Hi-Vision by NHK.
The three-day conference features a mix of local and international speakers delivering case studies as well as debates around the significant issues in the region. The central focus is around digital convergence and how this will deliver new revenues and business models for both content companies and telcos.
The event will use the Touch & Connect technology, which IBC has developed to support a new approach to conventions. Through simply touching, device-to-device or device-to-tag, the visitor connects to a wealth of information and to a new network of peers.
