CABSAT 2015, the region’s leading broadcast trade event, kicks off today. Welcoming more than 900 exhibitors from 60 countries, CABSAT 2015 will run from March 10th-12th at Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC).
Now in its 21st year, the show will deliver a roster of new and enhanced features, including specialist conferences and training sessions, satellite talks, the all-new Content Market Place featuring MBC Group and Stargate Studios, and an enlarged Content Delivery Hub – a key attraction for exhibitors specialising in connected content platforms.
Trixie LohMirmand, senior vice president, exhibitions and events management, DWTC, said: “With the total advertising spend in entertainment and media across the Middle East and Africa due to increase from USD$43.5 billion in 2014 to USD$65.9 billion in 2018, CABSAT 2015 provides a dedicated industry platform for regional media companies to absorb innovation-driven, best-practice business strategies to enhance their products for the benefit of viewers and consumers. Research shows that emerging markets are due to surpass established markets in digital universe percentage share by 2020. CABSAT is the number one regional platform to connect live content opportunities and enhance collaboration between regional and international content owners, operators and distributors.”
This year, the show will also lay claim to an expanded conference format featuring the second annual CABSAT & NAB Show Collaborative Conference and the inaugural Middle East Post-Production Training Conference.
Another highlight of the week is the Digital Studio Awards 2015, which takes place on Wednesday 11th March at the InterContinental, Dubai Festival City.
