The Eurovision TV Assembly is the annual event for TV and media Directors and senior figures from across EBU public service media organizations.
The Assembly provides a unique opportunity to discuss key ideas and share strategies in media management, production and programming among peers. This assembly covers the major issues of daily concern to TV leaders, so to take away ideas and solutions to apply to their activities.
The emphasis is both strategic and practical. Members share and debate real dilemmas among colleagues which they face in the disruptive media landscape. Keynote presentations address crucial topics that matter in the media environment, case studies are presented by industry experts and EBU offers an update on its services.
How do we manage the digital challenges?
We intend to hold sessions on the role of public media in a changing world; managing digital challenges; freedom of speech; innovations, and the major TV format success stories of the previous year.
We are delighted that the TV Assembly will be hosted by our colleagues at Slovakian Television on 1 & 2 June 2017. An ideal occasion to discover the beautiful city of Bratislava on the banks of the Danube that is easily accessible from Vienna Airport.
