The Asia Media Summit 2015 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia will offer public as well as private broadcasters in Asia Pacific a wide range of opportunities to debate, examine and formulate a clear vision for social media and pursue innovative strategies in dealing with this new media platform. As they recognise the growing symbiotic relationship they have with social media, broadcasters need to master this social media landscape in order to enhance their programmes, audience engagement and income generation.

While some broadcasters consider social media competition, others believe they can co-exist with social media and make this new platform a key partner to achieve their organisation’s goals.

AIBD in collaboration with its global partners presents the World Television Awards 2015.

The World TV Awards are open to all broadcasters in Asia, Pacific, Europe, Africa, and North & South America from public, private sector and freelance producers.

Technological developments are impacting the media organisations in many ways.  New delivery platforms, new media products & services and enhanced audience expectations are posing challenges for the broadcast organisations.  Well-equipped and trained human resources in the broadcasting field are valuable assets for the organisations to meet these challenges.

After more than 35 years of productive association, the collaboration between AIBD and Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) is turning a new leaf. Even as AIBD continues to be associated with FES, the German organisation’s office in Malaysia is being closed down by year-end.
