About the conference

Digital is touching upon every aspect of the way we create, produce and publish public service media content.

Our Media Department aims to inspire EBU Members with the latest digital trends and best practices, and to guide them through this culture change.

Colleagues from EBU Members are invited to join us in Lisbon for the first ever EBU Digital Media Days. This will not only be a forum to exchange ideas about how to reach digital audiences, but a space to define the role of public service media in the digital era, including our relationship with third-party distribution platforms.

Join us for this chance to discuss the latest issues affecting digital strategies and training, obstacles to harnessing big data, and production and storytelling trends in news, entertainment, fiction, music, sports and more.
