A pragmatic focus on the Future
IBC is a world-leading trade show and conference where the focus is firmly on future trends, with a practical lens rather than a fixation with “shiny objects”. From emerging and proven new “broadcast” technologies to helpful conversations around shifting audience behaviours and business models, IBC has you covered.Translate

Well organised. Good spread of speakers & topics.
Good meeting ground for the M&E Tech world. IBC needs to make the conference sessions less expensive. Not even one session was 2/3rd full this time.Translate

Less divercity within Cable/Sattelite/IPTV industry, but come closer to CES every year
It was a great show this year. We (Zodiac Systems) had a huge setup with 4 independent demo locations + some more demos available at our partners (MediaKind, Viaccess Orca, etc.) booths. For us it was bigger, than the last year, we had really busy first three days with a lot of inquiries and meetings. IBC organization was exceptional as always, but as a person who worked on a setup last three years, I would prefer to have an extra installation day right before the show starts. Nowadays, IBC put carpeting a night before the show, which gives lots of headache to people who works on equipment and software configuration and testing. I would call that day "Dry run day". That means, that all construction and carpeting should be finished a day before the current and the last day before the show will be exclusively for the final preparation, demo dry runs, preparing/making marketing materials, social networking, internal meetings and so on. So all the exhibitors could spent some time together in more relaxed atmosphere focusing on upcoming 5 day event. I guess it will make all the show much more productive and successful for everyone. Also, I would say, that IBC came a little closer to CE... Show moreTranslate

Combined conference & exhibits a BAD idea...
While there may be a couple of days of overlap, but a complete overlap for the conference & exhibits are a bad idea. Also, the conference is quite high priced causing very limited participation. Several sessions in the Auditorium & Forum were 60%+ empty... Not a good sign. The show floor had some interesting showcases but no major 'releases'...Translate

biggest and best IBC yet
This was the biggest and best IBC I've seen. It can be a bit overwhelming but preset meetings and a good strategy really helps keep things manageable. There are so many opportunities to network, so many parties and events, and so many great speakers at the show and at nearby events related to IBC. Our participation in, spend, and attendance at IBC grows every year. We bring more and more of our team in order to keep up with all of the various agendas we have and meetings.Translate

Unmissable event for broadcast professionals
If you work in the Media, Entertainment or Technology, it is hard to miss the biggest event of these industries. As an exhibitor, it is the perfect place to meet and show off to clients. The conferences are interesting too.Translate
