This year’s IBC Rising Stars programme starts today. This is an IBC initiative to create opportunities for young people looking to establish themselves in the industry, whether their interest is creative, commercial or technical.
From 09:00 this morning the group will have a concentrated programme of presentations and talks on the hot issues of today and looking into the future. Speakers come from organisations like NBC Sports and Roku; Cisco and Adobe; GoPro and Intel.
Between the presentations are opportunities to network with each other and with some of the industry experts who are giving their time to boost the next generation.
These include Alex Pettit from Alex.Live, Oisin Lunny from OpenMarket, and Naomi Climer who, as president of IET (and chair of the IBC Council) is now focused on bringing young people, particularly women, into the technology industries.
Tomorrow the Rising Stars delegates will have the opportunity to visit the exhibition and have free access to the whole of the conference. IBC would like to thank the sponsors of Rising Stars, Kakadu Software and Filmstro, and Media Partner, RedShark News. Find out more at IBC.org/risingstars
