CASBAA Reveals Highlights for 2017 Convention


CASBAA has unveiled the key themes and workshop program for the CASBAA Convention, which will be held at Studio City in Macau from November 6 to 8.

The lineup for this year’s event has been designed “to capture the urgent issues facing our industry at a time of the most dynamic market changes seen in more than 20 years,” said Christopher Slaughter, CASBAA’s CEO.

“The blue-chip list of pay-TV operators, content creators, broadband carriers, investors, sponsors and regulators attending CASBAA Convention 2017 guarantee unrivaled access to the Asia Pacific pay-TV and digital video decision-makers,” he added. “Networking in every sense is a central element within the CASBAA Convention 2017 program.”

The Masterclass panels and presentations will feature real-time case studies focused on the crucial battle against online piracy; a fresh look at the best performing business models for pay TV; deep-dive presentations on the vital security technologies and regulatory “fixes” under debate across AsiaPac and around the world; examinations of the new ecosystems and revenue streams now available for the monetization of emerging digital video markets; and insights on the impact of soon-to-be-launched broadband satellite services across Asia.

Key speakers for the event include Samuel Scott, columnist for The Promotion Fix @ The Drum; Hosi Simon, global general manager at VICE Media; NK Sinha, secretary MIB for the Government of India; Ros Lynch, the director of copyright and IP enforcement in the UK Intellectual Property Office; Sudhanshu Vats, group CEO of Viacom18; Birathon Kasemsri Na Ayudhaya, the chief content and media officer at True Corporation; and Jeremy Butteriss, the managing director for global partnerships for AsiaPac at Google.
