CASBAA Unveils New Location for Convention 2016

HONG KONG, Apr 24, 2016 - (ACN Newswire) - CASBAA, Asia's largest non-profit media association serving the multi-channel audio-visual content creation and distribution industry, today announced the venue and dates for its upcoming 2016 Convention.

"We are delighted to announce that this year's 22nd annual CASBAA Convention will be held in Macau at Studio City, from 07-10 November 2016, said CASBAA CEO Christopher Slaughter. "It will be the first time CASBAA has ever held an event in Macau, and we are thrilled to be able to bring the region's pay-TV industry together to experience all that this exciting enclave has to offer."

CASBAA Board of Directors Chairman Sompan Charumilinda of True Visions echoed those sentiments, adding, "The Board has overwhelmingly endorsed the move to Macau, as part of the Association's ongoing efforts to keep our annual Convention fresh and invigorating. We are confident delegates, speakers, and sponsors will find that the new venue and location will both contribute to another excellent CASBAA Convention. Furthermore, Studio City provides us with a bigger footprint for the Convention than we've ever experienced, which will offer many advantages for networking functions and private meeting rooms that our delegates are sure to enjoy."

"The CASBAA Convention has always been a great opportunity for senior executives from across the region and around the world to come together, strategically timed to be the most important industry event in the fourth quarter of the year," said Co-Board Member Responsible for Convention Todd Miller, CEO of Celestial Tiger Entertainment. "This year, by choosing Macau's Studio City, we're adding a certain 'show-biz' quality to the event."

Property President of Studio City JD Clayton said, "We're very delighted to welcome CASBAA to Macau for the very first time. As a Hollywood-inspired and cinematically-themed integrated resort, Studio City is definitely the perfect venue for the CASBAA Convention. We look forward to collaborating with CASBAA to create a successful event this year and to showcase the unrivaled excitement of Studio City, Asia's Entertainment Capital, to the participating delegates, in addition to our TV studio facility for production-oriented attendees."

The move is just one of many innovations for the annual industry gathering. "This year, we are making a concerted effort to ensure that all the links in the value chain are present at the Convention," said Co-Board Member Responsible for Convention Amit Malhotra, VP & GM Studio Entertainment at The Walt Disney Company. "In particular, we're working together to bring a critical mass of operators from across the region to Macau."

The CASBAA Convention will feature two full days of conference plenary sessions, keynote speakers, panel discussions, workshops, networking opportunities, and social activities. Topics will include best business practices, emerging market trends, technological developments, new programming strategies and offerings, and the broadcast regulatory landscape in the region. In addition, the Convention will also feature CASBAA's annual Policy Roundtable and Executive Roundtable. Both Roundtable events are invitation-only, closed-door forums, dedicated to in-depth discussions among select groups of industry stakeholders.

"With a host of new market entrants, new business models, and ongoing disruption and technological innovation, the industry is embracing change at a deep level," said Slaughter. "The Convention will present a wide array of eminent speakers and panelists to explore various aspects of change at this critical juncture in our industry's history."
