As Europe's largest professional broadcast show, the IBC (which stands for “International Broadcasting Convention”) forms an unrivalled global destination for discussion and debate about the many different challenges facing the media industry.

Broadcasting undergoing a sea of change

More than 55,000 attendees and 1,700 exhibitors from the worlds of electronic media and entertainment will gather in Amsterdam to discuss the 2015 theme, “the future of media in an age of disruption.”

The conference takes place across five days, and hosts over 300 speakers. Featuring some of the foremost thought-leaders, innovators, and policy makers in their fields, the conference will bring the the world’s biggest media companies to Amsterdam to explore new strategies, chart future technological progress, and uncover the future of the industry.

Amsterdam a familiar home for the IBC

The IBC has again chosen Amsterdam as the site for its annual conference, for a number of compelling reasons. As the conference organizers point out to their guests, Amsterdam is as famous for its culture, nightlife, and restaurants as it is for its business atmosphere. IBC attendees get to ride the trams for free using a special pass, and there is also a fleet of shuttle buses from the major hotels to take them directly to the RAI. Amsterdam also has one of the best transport systems in Europe, and a leading international travel hub in the form of Amsterdam Airport Schiphol lets them easily reach this important event from anywhere in the world.
