Leaders' Summit

IBC2013 Leaders' Summit Review

The IBC Leaders’ Summit is an exclusive invitation-only event, designed specifically for the most influential and visionary people at the top of the electronic media and entertainment industry.  It pairs exclusive independent research from Deloitte with world-leading insight in a collaborative environment and enables high level peer to peer networking opportunities with those thought-leaders who are shaping the future of our industry.

In response to this ever-changing landscape the IBC2013 Leaders’ Summit programme evolved to more closely reflect and address these fast-paced issues and developments. This included a new over-arching title for the summit, 'Please Adjust Your Set: Retuning Your Strategy for the Connected Era', and a new, more streamlined set of sessions for an intensive day of high-level discussion and debate. This helped to shape future business strategy as the electronic media industry landscape flexes and distorts under the impact of numerous disruptors.

Audience behaviours are changing rapidly, innovation threatens market disruption, and regulators have the potential to create profound market change. The IBC Leaders’ Summit presented a unique opportunity to adapt business strategies for the connected era.

Andrew Neil“The inaugural Leaders’ Summit provided thought-provoking and topical debate on the pertinent business issues facing leaders globally today. Last year we focussed on an in-depth, rigorous examination of the connected world under the theme ‘Smart Connections’. Both summits gave delegates an exclusive package of informed strategic knowledge and the tools to equip themselves with the opportunity to create a competitive edge in a dynamic market. IBC Leaders' Summit has firmly established a reputation as the forum to debate and share the future of broadcast and media business as well as providing a great opportunity for an international audience to interact and network with each other.” Andrew Neil, Anchor IBC Leaders’ Summit
