Media Summit

The Media Summit is a platform to network, learn and exchange experiences among peers.

The TV Assembly, Radio Assembly and Digital Assembly take place during the event.

The EBU Media Summit is a unique meeting place where senior executives and managers from EBU Members come together to exchange ideas and share knowledge on topics ranging from the latest media trends to the most pressing issues facing the broadcast media industry. It also provides a platform for collaboration and finding new and creative solutions to common challenges and to discuss strategies to chart the future of public service media.

The next edition will take place in Geneva, Switzerland on 24-25 April 2024 hosted in collaboration with SRG SSR. The Summit also includes the TV, Radio, and Digital Assemblies.

The theme for the event this year is ‘Creating Memorable Stories.’ We'll explore how Public Service Media (PSM) can be a force for good and delve into the art of using creativity as a catalyst for positive change through the power of storytelling.

The agenda is centered around catering high impact content to audiences in a connected world and the challenges that come with it. This edition of the Media Summit will take delegates on a journey of inspiration and creativity to help them make a difference through the memorable stories they create for their audiences.
