International Broadcasting Committee

The International Broadcasting Committee steers the cooperative activities of the International Broadcasting Assembly and sets the agenda of the annual assembly. This group brings together EBU Members that transmit internationally (TV, radio and online) to discuss and share strategic challenges, identify areas of mutual support, assistance and knowledge and to reinforce synergies with other EBU activities. The group meet at the annual International Broadcasting Assembly, which provides a platform for international relations as well as sales, marketing and distribution experts.

The committee was created in 2015 following a decision of the EBU’s General Assembly. International broadcasters, most of whom are affiliates or departments of existing Members, formerly met under the aegis of The Bruges Group.
In June 2023, members elected the new International Broadcasting Committee. On 20 October an extraordinary Assembly was held, and four additional members elected to complete the committee : John Grigoras, Marek Solon-Lipiński Mria Luisa Mazzei and Mustafa Sarıtaş.
