CASBAA Convention 2013 - Change is ON THE AIR
Hong Kong, June 24, 2013 - (ACN Newswire) - The Asia-Pacific's premier
multichannel TV industry association, CASBAA, today announced the dates and
theme of its flagship event, the CASBAA Convention 2013. Taking place from
21-24 October 2013 at the Grand Hyatt Hong Kong, the 20th edition of the
Convention will celebrate the continually evolving broadcasting industry with
Change is ON THE AIR.
"We are looking to shake things up this year for the CASBAA
Convention," said Christopher Slaughter, CEO, CASBAA. "While the
core values of CASBAA remain the same, to inform, represent and connect, we
are looking at new and different ways to improve our biggest event of the
year. With this year's theme, not only are we recognizing that our
industry is in a constant state of flux, but that CASBAA, too, is changing to
meet the needs of our membership."
Chief among the key differences to the Convention in 2013 is the expansion of
actual conference sessions from two days to three days with more emphasis on
discussion, networking and the exchange of information than in previous years.
Plenary sessions will continue to anchor each day with keynote speakers
highlighting a variety of topics relevant to the various segments of the
multichannel TV industry that CASBAA represents.
Outside of these plenary sessions will be a completely new feature of the
Convention, three themed content "tracks" running concurrently
during each day. Each "track" will focus on an aspect of the
broadcasting industry that consistently generates buzz, news and discussion:
content, technology and marketing. Delegates will have the option of
customizing their Convention experience by being able to pick and choose which
"track" they wish to attend based on the topic that most interests
"The watchword for this year's agenda is flexibility," added
Slaughter. "We have created a schedule that will enable delegates to
maximise their time at the Convention to their best advantage, whether
attending keynote events, specific tracks in the schedule, networking or
seeing what Hong Kong has to offer as a destination."
Rounding out the Convention will be a host of additional features to enhance
the delegate experience including a Delegates Matching Tool (an online service
to faciliate the coordination of meetings between attendees), exhibition
space, a variety of informative breakfasts and lunches, networking cocktails
and the always popular Convention-ending party.
Supporting the CASBAA Convention this year are sponsors Discovery Networks
Asia Pacific, MEASAT, Playboy Plus Entertainment Inc., Time Warner, Turner
International Asia Pacific and TV5MONDE.
