Mumbai: The Cable & Satellite Broadcasting Association of Asia (CASBAA) announced it will stage the 15th CASBAA Convention in Hong Kong on 28 – 30 October.
Themed ‘Subscribe to the Future – All Eyes are on Asia’, the three-day
CASBAA Convention 2008 will highlight the dynamism of digital cable,
high-speed broadband and mobile TV services with the realities of the
DTH, linear TV and web TV businesses.
Also featured at the Convention 2008 will be the opportunities provided by the high-energy markets of Japan, Korea and Australia, as well as unmasking the core market values of Thailand, Vietnam and Indonesia. With sessions scheduled on the new face of China pay-TV after the Beijing Olympics and the latest developments in the India market, the Convention 2008 will have a greater impact than ever before.
Featuring global leaders, the CASBAA Convention 2008 will also emphasize pay-TV’s competitiveness over terrestrial TV and print advertising supported by interactive workshops on pay-TV advertising and mobile TV.
"This year’s Convention is set to unlock the value of pay-TV to enhance market growth," said CASBAA CEO Simon Twiston Davies.
"The CASBAA Convention 2008 will create unprecedented opportunity for sponsors and delegates to experience the first-handed excitement of the latest technologies," said CASBAA chairman Marcel Fenez.
