By the industry, for the industry,’ is precisely the sentiment that International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) exudes every year at Amsterdam, and rightfully so. IBC is one of the globe’s most impactful media, entertainment and technology shows, which most industry professionals vouch for. It allures thousands of attendees to the Dutch capital, promising them a magnanimous display of products, services, vendor solutions and exhibits, pertaining to the broadcast industry.

By virtue of its successful execution year after year, IBC2018 is back and how! This year promises a better, larger version of its predecessing ones, with an array of new technologies expected to be demonstrated for thousands of visitors from around the globe.

Originally, the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) has evolved extensively from its technical broadcast origins, encompassing the length and breadth of media creation management and delivery. It puts forth everything from online content to digital cinema, and automated workflows to high-resolution capture and display. It has established itself as one of the most respected and sought-after conventions, and it continues to go from strength to strength.


IBC2018 has laid down a series of technology conferences, to help induce new ideas and foster connections amongst industry pioneers.
