Media Summit 2019

After the success of our inaugural event in Brussels, the 2nd Media Summit will take place in Porto on 28-29 May, hosted by RTP.

The Media Summit brings together content executives from EBU Member organizations to discuss content strategic challenges and opportunities for public service broadcasters. The event is also a platform to network, learn and exchange experiences among peers. The TV Assembly and the Digital Assembly also take place within the event.

This year, the event will be built around the topic of “Relationships”: our relationship with audiences, with other public media organizations, and with key actors in our industry. How can we make these relationships work?

Topics for discussion will include:

  • Building better Public Service Media brands
  • Connecting with young audiences
  • Trust and collaboration
  • Embracing diversity
  • Building strong PSM alliances

Speakers and case studies to be presented will be released in the upcoming weeks.

We look forward to seeing you in Porto!
