THIS YEAR AT TV Connect MENA 2018
The MENA region has long been dominated by free-to-air channels and ad-funded business models but the market is changing and quite significantly. This year we will be discussing the bright future of the MENA media and telco market, along with: the competitive race to be the number one Pay-TV operator; greater OTT differentiation; the purchase of 24.4 million TV screens in 2018; improved mobile connectivity; and the region’s digital consumption growth being among the highest in the world because of the large youth population.
In order to take advantage and not miss out on any market opportunities, it is vital to address the regional challenges together as an industry. We can no longer turn a blind eye or fight the good fight alone. Power in numbers is the key and TV Connect MENA focus' on just that. In 2018 we invite regulators, associations, governing bodies, service providers, solution providers, analysts and more to join in the discussions and debates. We also welcome key international players to share their thoughts, best practice models and offer advice.
