AIBD in collaboration with its partners and international organizations is organizing the Asia Media Summit (AMS). The conference provides a unique opportunity for broadcasters in the region to share their thoughts on Broadcasting and Information.

Decision makers, media professionals, scholars, and stakeholders of news and programming from Asia, Pacific, Africa, Europe, Middle East and North America attended this annual conference. Almost all regional and International Broadcasting Unions and Associations support the AMS.


We have the pleasure of welcoming all media professionals to the Asia Media Summit.

“Information is not enough.  If all you are going to do is give information to your audiences, you are mostly wasting your time; whatever media, platforms or formats you intend to use.” This was the provocative opening statement with which I began the AMS pre-summit workshop on 25 May 2015.
