Tom McGann Memorial Summit: Engineering the Future

The Tom McGann Memorial Summit is a new initiative from the IABM Educational Foundation1, the charitable body supported by the IABM2, the trade organisation for technology suppliers in the broadcast industry. Tom McGann spent his career in the broadcasting industry. He was one of the founders of the IABM, driving forward the interests of technologists in the industry as well as its commercial status. In his IABM role he played a leading role in the movement to transform IBC into a truly international, annual convention.

The aim of the Tom McGann Memorial Summit is to bring together all sides of the industry to analyse the requirements for engineering and technical talent in the future, and to determine how that talent can best be attracted, developed and retained. The intention is that the event will take place in different parts of the world, stimulating the debate and promoting the industry as a challenging and satisfying place to work.

For the inaugural event the IABM Educational Foundation partnered with the European Broadcasting Union3, who kindly hosted the event at EBU headquarters in Geneva. Simon Fell, EBU director of technology and innovation, was a delegate. Nathalie Labourdette, head of the Eurovision ACADEMY, gave a keynote address.

Invited delegates included senior representatives from broadcasters, broadcast vendors, academics and students.

This document summarises the findings of the meeting, and sets out some of the actions which were agreed as being likely to stimulate technologists and engineers to join and remain in the industry. This is very much the start of a process of discussion and development, of cross-industry co-operation. All sides are called upon to continue the work of the summit and demonstrate a commitment to attracting and retaining the best engineering talent.
