To meet demand for broadcast technology in the region, as part of the IPTV World Series, an IPTV Middle East and Africa event will be held from Monday, 5 November 2007 to Tuesday, 6 November 2007 at the Jumeirah Beach Hotel in Dubai. The conference will feature over 15 platform operators, content providers and system integrators discussing thematic issues faced in the IPTV industry.
The exhibition will feature up to 30 leading exhibitors, demonstrating their brand of technology. More than 800 delegates are expected to attend the show, and there will be a networking party for all delegates.
The Middle East and Africa are the fastest growing broadband markets in the world. A recent report by research company Infonetics concluded that the EMEA region presently accounts for 48% of worldwide IPTV service revenue. The Middle East and Africa promise significant growth opportunity across the telecoms sector in the next five years, and as competition intensifies, operators are expected to employ attractive services such as IPTV to both retain customers and attract new ones.
IPTV World Forum Middle East & Africa aims to provide the opportunity to benefit from established local deployments of IPTV and also meet those from further afield, along with other seasoned attendees from the IPTV World Series. The event will feature the series’ unique operator-centric formula, and bring together local and worldwide IPTV service providers and telcos, along with key technology vendors, broadcasters and systems integrators.
