(London, United Kingdom--April 18, 2013) Each September IBC brings the world's electronic media and entertainment industry to Amsterdam to challenge, direct and set the industry's agenda. Staged by the industry for the industry, it spotlights and drives future trends, technologies, innovations and business models. So much more than an exhibition, IBC delivers a dynamic, comprehensive event that is stimulating and relevant to the changes and challenges faced by its attendees. Registration through the IBC website guarantees a place at one of the hottest events of the year and is now open.
IBC encompasses the creation, management and delivery of all electronic media and entertainment content in the multiplatform and multiscreen world.

They come to hone their knowledge, interact with leading technology and participate in a host of unique Feature Areas including IBC Workflow Solutions, IBC Production Insight, IBC Connected World, the Future Zone and the IBC Big Screen, as well as to honour excellence and achievement from across the industry at the IBC Awards.
