IBC Council

The IBC Council

IBC has a track record of thought leadership in the industry and strives to ensure that the conference and trade show reflect current and emerging themes for the industry, especially as it is in a period of rapid change. The quality of IBC’s vision and direction is significantly influenced by the IBC Council who are working across the industry at very senior levels.

The IBC Council is an advisory body composed of 15-20 senior executives from companies across the media and entertainment industry.  Members are asked to attend two meetings a year for a discussion to gather the vision of senior industry players. This discussion is used to support the strategic direction of IBC and gain feedback on any IBC plans presented.
