The first meeting of the International Broadcasting Assembly (IBA) formed at the last EBU General Assembly, will be held in Paris, 19-21 May 2015. IBA will discuss cyber attacks, digital radio, Europe’s refugee crisis. The EBU Media Intelligence Service will also present the results of its survey about international broadcasting.
IBA offers EBU members that transmit internationally (TV, radio and online) a opportunity to meet and identify areas of mutual support, assistance and knowledge.
In June 2015, the EBU General Assembly unanimously decided to amend the EBU Statutes to form an International Broadcasting Assembly (IBA), comprising international broadcasting entities (television and radio) for transmissions outside the home countries of their parent organisations. These international broadcasters - most of whom are affiliates or departments of existing Members - formerly met under the aegis of The Bruges Group, which has been dissolved.
The Committee organises and sets the agenda for the annual International Broadcasting Assembly, which provides a platform for international relations experts as well as sales, marketing and distribution specialists to network and to exchange views about specific issues of international broadcasting – international programming, satellite and cable distribution, licences, subtitling, audiences, etc.
