iSportconnect announces 2018 Broadcast Masterclass
By Community | November 15, 2017
iSportconnect is delighted to announce that we will be staging a Broadcast Masterclass on February 28, 2018.
The event will bring together industry thought leaders to focus on new ways for media companies, rights owners and technology partners to prosper, thrive and grow as the digital revolution continues to disrupt the sports broadcasting market.
Broadcasting is dead – and more alive and dynamic than ever before in the digital world. Television and video content is everywhere, with multiple platforms and devices available at billions of fingertips around the globe.
But staying ahead of the curve has never been more difficult, with business models often running to catch up to ever-changing technology and new opportunities coming online every single day.
Peter Hutton – CEO of Eurosport – has been confirmed as a guest speaker and is set to bring significant value to the panel-themed content programme, having been charged with strengthening and localising the broadcaster’s brand worldwide since his appointment in 2015.
Hutton also oversees Eurosport.com – Europe’s most visited online sports destination – and is responsible for growing Eurosport Player, a premium live and on demand OTT service.
An array of well-respected speakers and high-ranking delegates will debate a number of crunch topics, including the future of the broadcast rights landscape, while a series of networking sessions will ensure those in attendance are able to share experiences and forge new relationships.
No agencies or press will be in attendance and, as we follow Chatham House Rules, all panel discussions will remain confidential.
A venue and full speaker lineup for the event will be confirmed in due course. Please contact Chris Edbrook (firstname.lastname@example.org) to register your interest in attending.
