(Previously, three CCBN Receptions were held during IBC in Amsterdam.)Both the forum and reception enjoyed great success, which high-lighted the CCBN brand among the broadcasting tradeshows around the world.
The CCBN organizing Committee invited not only broadcast industry insiders, senior representatives from government and major player in the industry but also CCBN exhibitors. The reception was aimed to provide a platform for information exchanging and knowledge sharing, which is an extension of CCBN Expo; more over, it is a reward that offered to our exhibitors, without whose long-term supports and help, CCBN would have been able to become the largest broadcasting event in Asia-Pacific region and even in the world.
