Feb 21, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Broadband Asia & TV Connect Asia 2013, a broadband and media event, is set to attract thousands of decision-makers from across the region as it relocates back to Hong Kong.
As the event's official Host Operator Partners, Hong Kong's operators PCCW and HKT are already supporters of the conference and exhibition. The event also has support from CSL, Pacnet and the Commerce and Economic Development Bureau for Hong Kong.
Now in its ninth year, Broadband Asia & TV Connect Asia welcomes PCCW and HKT, as HKT's Group Managing Director, Alex Arena, is set to provide the host keynote. Mr Arena comments: "PCCW and HKT are very excited to have this event return to Hong Kong where we look forward to greeting a wide range of delegates from across the region and beyond. This is a highly valuable opportunity for us all to meet new partners, discover new business opportunities, benchmark your own business and to gain insight into the hottest topics facing the broadband and TV industry in the Asia Pacific region."
Miss Susie Ho, Permanent Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development (Communications and Technology) at Hong Kong's Commerce and Economic Development Bureau, will open the conference and exhibition with a Ministerial Welcome Address. The organisers are delighted to have Miss Ho and Hong Kong's entire broadband ecosystem on board as it further strengthens the event's position in the region's exploding marketplace, particularly at a time Asia tops global broadband charts.
Co-located with TV Connect Asia, the conference and exhibition will highlight new developments in TV and broadband, bringing together the two ecosystems and their figures from across the region. The event's focus is reflected throughout its agenda which has a speaker line-up that will give visitors exclusive insight into the latest advancements in mobile and fixed broadband, and the content evolution.
The two-day event is made up of two programme tracks which complement each other to reflect the nature of the converging broadband and connected entertainment industry. Day One will address fixed access evolution, mobile and wireless opportunities, business models, the digital home, making TV multi-screen, and effective content delivery management, while Day Two will focus on leveraging broadband networks, capacity and accessibility, effective TV delivery and content business strategies. Combined keynotes will take place across both days with C-level speakers, including CSL, Celestial Tiger Entertainment, Youku Tudou, Hulu, Telstra, Telecom New Zealand and KT (Korea Telecom).
Visitors will benefit from conference sessions delivered by over 150 visionary speakers and an exhibition featuring industry solution and technology providers. The conference agenda also boasts a joint super session on Day Two, set to focus on tackling content piracy in the Internet Age. Here, figures from News Corp., Media Partners Age, Motion Pictures Association, PCCW-HKT and CASBAA (Cable and Satellite Broadcasting Association of Asia), will lead the discussion on this hot topic. The event's VIP Executive Summit is also back for another successful year, taking place on Day One and bringing together top executives in the industry for an exclusive exploratory session.
The conference and exhibition will take place at the Kowloon Shangri-La, Hong Kong, from 9-10 April.
