The Big Digital Meet-Up

The EBU Digital Media Days is now the Big Digital Meet-Up! It is a festival of ideas offering an inclusive experience to celebrate EBU’s digital communities in one place.  

We’re excited to announce that this year our flagship digital event Digital Media Days is getting a makeover, as we’re launching it as a brand-new event: The Big Digital Meet-Up.   

Building upon the success of past editions, the Big Digital Meet-Up is envisioned as an all-in-one event for the EBU digital community to inspire, exchange knowledge and build relationships. 

The event will take place on 3-4 October 2024 in Turin, Italy co-hosted by Rai under the frame of the 76th Prix Italia

In a world where the future of public service media (PSM) seems uncertain, the Big Digital Meetup dispels this notion. As the EBU, we firmly believe in a thriving future for PSM, extending not just for the next 20 years but 100 years. The key? Building strong and sustainable connections with our audience in a digital world. 

What to expect?  

A festival of ideas that acts as the ultimate hub for EBU's digital communities. This will not only be a space for sharing insights but also explore the latest media and technology trends and how best to serve audiences in a connected world.  

Why attend?   

The event unites digital enthusiasts, young professionals, and PSM experts in a collective effort to make PSM relevant for generations to come. Together, let’s embark on a journey to shape the future of EBU digital communities.
