BANGKOK, May 2, 2013 - (ACN Newswire) - CASBAA returns to Thailand to host an in depth forum examining the multichannel TV industry in the country with Thailand in View 2013, 30 May at Centara Grand & Bangkok Convention Centre at CentralWorld.
"We are turning the spotlight again on the vibrant multichannel TV market in Thailand," said Christopher Slaughter, CEO, CASBAA. "With a thriving broadcasting industry brimming with opportunity and possibilities, Thailand is an emerging market with a promising future and this forum will explore the potential and examine the pitfalls of broadcasting in the country."
With over 22 million TV households in Thailand, multichannel TV's 65% household penetration translates into 14.3 million households or 45 million people (source Nielsen). Cable and satellite TV penetration has tripled over the last three years, due in part, to the government's decision to allow advertising on pay-TV and local cable and falling satellite dish prices.
In the news, the ongoing English Premier League rights negotiations, digital terrestrial TV broadcasting licensing and the ongoing battle with the NBTC's "must-carry" rule over sporting events have dominated the headlines recently.
Built around current issues affecting the country now, Thailand in View 2013 has created an agenda that is both topical and timely with panels including:
-- The Neighborhood is Getting Crowded -- Digital Terrestrial Licensing and its effects on the CabSat Ecosystem
-- It's about the Money, Money, Money -- Advertising on CabSat TV in Thailand
-- Meeting Diverse Demands -- New Content for Thailand
-- Driving Take-Up of CabSat Platforms in Thailand -- Is Football Really the Key?
-- Thailand's New Regulatory Framework -- Is it Promoting Growth?
-- The Times They Are A-Changing... and People Watch TV Differently
Lending their expertise and sharing their insights, a local and international roster of industry leaders will spearhead the discussion through keynote addresses, panels and conversations. Guests at this year's forum include Dr. Natee Sukonrat (Vice Chairman, Broadcasting Committee, National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission), Sompan Charumilinda (Executive Vice Chairman, True Visions), Nilufar Fowler (MD, Mindshare), Nadia Hwang (Executive Director, Regional Entertainment Advertising Sales, Turner International Asia Pacific), Adisak Limprungpatanakij (President, Nation Broadcasting Corporation PCL), Niphon Naksompop (Chairman, Satellite Television Association (Thailand)), Adrian New (MD Asia-Pacific, Chelsea Football Club), Jiradej Nusthit (SVP, Chief of Strategic and Corporate Planning, Cable Thai Holding), Sinthu Peatrarut (MD, Media Client Leadership Thailand, Nielsen), Wannee Ruttanaphon (President, Media Agency Association of Thailand (MAAT); Chairman, IPG Mediabrands), Thinakorn Thianprathum (GM, Me Television Co., Ltd.), Dr. Pana Thongmeearkhom (Executive Committee, Broadcasting and Telecommunications Research and Development Fund for the Public Interest) and many others.
