Come Together Again

We’ve been apart for too long, it’s time to come together again. IBC2021 will bring the content and technology industry together again to discover the future of media and do business face-to-face.

Celebrating collaboration in technology and creativity.

IBC is the one global forum where every aspect of the industry comes together to share knowledge, solve challenges, and develop future strategies. The Innovation Awards celebrate that spirit of co-operation and collaboration.

Now well established as the most coveted in the industry, the Innovation Awards are the original and only truly independent industry awards for excellence in technological and creative innovation. They are presented to the end-user of the project – the broadcaster or media company that started with a challenge and brought together technology partners to create a solution. And while the award goes to the end-user, those technology partners are also celebrated and honoured for their contribution.
