Building the new TV experience: Giving viewers what they want



This is the EU version of NAB. It is heavily dominated by UK and EU companies plus global businesses and brands.  Almost 2000 of the world's key technology suppliers exhibit at IBC and the event showcases a debate-leading conference all round. Not to be missed if you work within this field.



Book early, download the sophisticated IBC APP and arrange meetings with new connections. There is a 'Tiki' bar that everyone seems to head to after the main talks (sometime during the talks). If you haven't met "your people", this is where the magic can happen.

There are lots of networking events and after parties here at IBC. Keep track of the official events on the APP. But with the company specific or to know about the unofficial after parties, it's best to speak to as many people as possible to gauge all parties for your calander.

We also recommend taking a floor tour. There is SO MUCH to see here and if you don't have a plan it is easy to get lost or miss key demonstrations and exhibitors. There are official IBC tours or contact the Team at Conference Concierge and we can  help.



IBC works closely with the RAI Hotel Services to provide accommodation for IBC attendees and exhibitors. Book through their official hotel reservation system and benefit from special event rates.
