Hong Kong / Singapore / Mumbai – Leaders of global media and telecom companies are meeting on April 22 – 24, 2013, in Bali, Indonesia for the fourth annual Asia Pacific Pay–TV Operators Summit (APOS). Organised by Media Partners Asia, APOS is a regional event for TV and broadband industry executives aimed to drive strategies, deals and policies across the converged ecosystems of media and telecoms.
“Both emerging growth markets and mature, value geographies in Asia Pacific are increasingly vital to the future of strategic global majors. This year’s APOS is a testament to this trend while the line-up and themes are also a significant nod to the growing aspirations of leading local players with currency to expand in domestic and international markets,” said Vivek Couto, executive director of Media Partners Asia.
Some of APOS’ agenda highlights include: “Asia in the Global Media Portfolio”; “Disruptors and Threats”, which talks about regional OTT plays and the growth of DTT; “Pay-TV Brands in the Age of Online”; “India, Abroad, at Home, on the Move & On Demand”; “The Rise of DTH”; “Going for Gold, the Sports Equation”, featuring new ways to engage consumers and unlocking a new cycle of value across channels and platforms; and “Media & Money”, which focuses on new currencies and stories for content and distribution.
