NAB Show and the Dubai World Trade Center (DWTC) announced they will partner to produce the 2014 CABSAT Conference. Celebrating its 20th anniversary, CABSAT is the region’s leading annual event focusing on the broadcast, satellite and broader media industry. The two-day conference, to be held March 11-12, 2014 at the Dubai World Trade Center, attracts attendees from the Middle East, Africa and South Asia (MEASA) who are actively engaged in the creation, management and delivery of entertainment and news content.
CABSAT 2014 will bring together visitors from 110 countries and more than 900 exhibitors for a three-day event combining all aspects of the broader media and satellite spheres including: acquisition and production, pro/broadcast audio, management systems, post-production, content and communication, distribution and delivery and connected devices.
The CABSAT Conference, in partnership with NAB Show, will feature daily keynotes, a state-of-the-industry report, technical programs and panel discussions focusing on the rapid changes and emerging technology and business trends in broadcasting. Sessions will also address the global transition to digital broadcasting, how these developments affect the digital media and entertainment landscape, and how to monetize multi-platform services.
This collaboration enhances the CABSAT event and enables NAB Show stakeholders to explore new business opportunities throughout the world where new media technologies and digital solutions are being embraced.
“We are pleased to partner with DWTC/CABSAT to bring some of the world-class education we offer at the annual NAB Show to this region of the world,” said Chris Brown, executive vice president, Conventions and Business Operations at NAB. “In partnering with leading events such as this, we seek to support innovation and growth in media and entertainment and to contribute to a global dialogue that emanates from the broader international media community that gathers annually at NAB Show.”
“This new collaboration underscores CABSAT’s 20-year commitment to deliver the greatest return on investment for our global exhibiting communities and increase their engagement with MEASA’s leading decision-makers in the creation, management and delivery of entertainment and news content,” said Trixie LohMirmand, senior vice president, Exhibitions & Events Management, DWTC, organizer of CABSAT.
