Broadcast industry to participate at CASBAA India Forum 2014

CASBAA’s annual India Forum will take place in New Delhi on March 5, 2014 where international and national level speakers will explore the Indian cable and broadcasting markets in the context of the global economy and challenging regulatory regimes.

“With over 146 million non-terrestrial TV connections in the country representing 92 percent reach of the population and multi-channel TV accounting for nearly 90 percent of TV advertising, India continues to be one of the most important markets in the Asia Pacific,” said Christopher Slaughter, CEO, CASBAA.

“But to be truly successful nowadays, it takes more than doing well in your own back yard. This year’s forum will explore what it takes to be a factor on the global stage,” added Slaughter.

High profile speakers participating in the conference include: Dr Rahul Khullar, chairman, TRAI; N Parameswaran, principal advisor, broadcasting & cable services, TRAI; Punit Goenka, MD & CEO, Zee Entertainment; Raj Nayak, CEO, Colors; Satyajit Sen, CEO, Zenithoptimedia; MN Vyas, MD, Essel Shyam; Jagdish Kumar, MD & CEO, Hathway Cable & Datacom; Siddharth Jain, MD, South Asia, Turner International India; Bharat Ranga, chief content & creative officer, Zee Network; Narayan Rao, executive vice chairperson, NDTV; Keertan Adyanthaya, MD, FOX International Channels; and Shailesh Shah, secretary general, IBF.

The Theme of the CASBAA India Forum 2014 is “Indian Content: Going Global?” The forum will provide a platform to look inwards on issues such as the ongoing digitization of country’s cable networks and the state of the DTH industry as well as global matters including foreign direct investment and the ‘internationalisation’ of Indian content.

CASBAA is the association for digital multichannel television, content, platforms, advertising and video delivery across Asia.
