We hope to bring together some memories of Hassan at the ASBU BroadcastPro Summit, which will take place at Westin Mina Seyahi, Dubai on November 16.
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Hassan Ghoul, who succumbed to death last month on the last day of CABSAT. Industry professionals came together at the Conrad Hotel to pay their respects to his family.
I think Hassan started his career in broadcast around the time I was born, and I had the pleasure of meeting him back in 2003 when I began work in this industry.
If you asked anyone about Hassan, the first phrase most would use to describe him was that he was “a thorough gentleman”. He was also probably one of a handful of people who attempted to coin Arabic terms for some of the industry terms that were only in English. He was always held in high regard by everyone in the industry. We hope to pay a short tribute to Hassan at the ASBU BroadcastPro Summit and Awards, which will be held on November 16 at the Westin Mina Seyahi, Dubai.
Speaking of the conference and awards, BroadcastPro is proud to have been the first globally to have successfully conducted an industry event after Covid-19 began, in February 2021. We are pleased to be part of Dubai because its strict adherence to Covid-19 guidelines and its commitment to prevent it from making an overpowering comeback has made the emirate attractive to international visitors and encouraged local businesses like us to carry on with our events.
We are pleased to have secured several new speakers to participate in the conference this year. The list is being updated regularly and they are available at broadcastpromeawards.com.
The shortlist for the Awards is now out and we are e ready to celebrate a new set of winners this year. We look forward to welcoming you at the ASBU BroadcastPro Summit and Awards on November 16.
