The Future of TV Starts Now!

The sixth annual IP&TV Forum EurAsia East Europe held in Istanbul is moving on with a brand new event title – TV Connect EurAsia East Europe and is the only major TV event in the region that will encompass the full value chain in the TV delivery ecosystem.

We’re maximising our brand potential through a future forward name that addresses all cool aspects of TV delivery including IPTV, OTTtv, Multiplatform services and interactive content creation! The TV ecosystem has created a level playing field for creatives and technology developers alike to bring the next generation TV experience and introduce services like pause, rewind, catch up and fast forward in the linear TV package. The consumer expecting content on various platforms is driving the demand, and all players in this field should come together and find better ways of sharing the returns.

TV Connect EurAsia East Europe will take place on 9th-10th October 2012 at the Marmara Taksim in Istnabul, Turkey and will increasingly include issues like content licensing and distribution, developing standards for devices, strategic direction for multiplatform services for CE Manufacturers, marketing ideas for pay TV providers including broadcasters, IPTV, OTTtv, Cable and Satellite players. It will act as a platform that explores all opportunities and business potential in the connected TV industry.

The event will not only give you the opportunity to learn from the latest case studies by operators and TV service providers in the region, but it will also enable you to meet influential decision makers, raise your business brand and give you the opportunity to gain solid leads and marketing strategy when you return to your office.
