IBC 2016 has kicked off, welcoming over 55,000 attendees from more than 170 countries. Taking place in Amsterdam until 13th September, the event will feature a wide range of presentations from leading authorities across the industry, as well as an exhibition featuring over 1,600 media and broadcasting companies.
Lord Puttnam has been announced as one of the keynote speakers. The Oscar-winning film producer, educationalist and politician will cover a broad spectrum of issues including the extraordinary growth of social media; the impact of technology on creativity; the likely effects of the UK’s EU Referendum vote on the creative sector and the media's role and responsibility in trying to reverse the potentially catastrophic loss of public trust.
Meanwhile, Tony Emerson, Microsoft’s worldwide managing director for the media and cable industry, will take part in the IBC 2016 Wrap-Up, where he will be joined by Elisabetta Romano, vice president and head of TV and Media at Ericsson and Tom Griffiths, director of broadcast and distribution technology at ITV, to discuss the biggest trends that are shaping the industry.
