The event is scheduled for November 8th at the Dubai Knowledge Village Park Conference Centre.
The ASBU BroadcastPro ME Summit and Awards is in its 13th year, and I am delighted to announce that we have 34 high-profile industry professionals joining us in this edition to speak about several topics that have become increasingly important in our industry. With OTT leading the entertainment brigade and multiple technologies as well as genres gaining prominence, we decided to expand our panel discussions to cover a wide range of topics, including AI, sports, virtual production, IP and cloud, in addition to our regular topics.
We have also deviated from the norm of hosting the conference and awards at one venue and split it this year. As always, we prioritise the convenience of the media industry when selecting a venue, and this year we have partnered with Studio City to host the conference at the Dubai Knowledge Village Park Conference Centre, a prominent landmark within the academic area of Dubai Media City. It has always been our dream to host our awards at an outdoor venue under a star-studded sky with the Dubai Marina skyline, and as the weather is pleasant in November, this year finally offered that opportunity.
This issue of BroadcastPro ME, in keeping with our spirit and passion to always bring the best stories to you, also showcases Blinx, a new digital storytelling hub that has opened up in Dubai Media City, and the tech behind OSNtv, a new smart box that merges the worlds of linear and streaming for viewers.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Summit on November 8. Attendance is free for industry professionals but registration is mandatory, as per Dubai government regulations. Please visit https://broadcastpromeawards. com to register.
