6th January 2015, Singapore via Hong Kong – CASBAA’s calendar of events for 2015 officially begins with Indonesia in View taking place on Tuesday, January 20 at the Hotel Mulia Senayan in Jakarta.
“CASBAA is returning to Indonesia with a full scale event for the first time in nearly three years to re-examine the progress of the pay-TV industry in this dynamic region,” said Christopher Slaughter, CEO, CASBAA. “Indonesia is still a land of great opportunity for the multichannel TV market and this year’s forum will help our delegates gain a greater understanding of the business of broadcasting in the country.”
Television dominates the media landscape in Indonesia, with nearly 42 million TV households representing over 67% of the nearly 62 million total homes in the country. However, while FTA television is ubiquitous – including one Government owned station, 10 private stations with “national” coverage and more than 200 FTA stations with city or regional coverage – cable and satellite TV are still relatively small markets, with 4.4 million households in 2014, representing 11% household penetration.
To explore the nooks and crannies of the local industry, top level thought leaders from across all sectors of multichannel TV will share their knowledge and experiences working within the Indonesian broadcasting framework.
Among the many outstanding speakers expected from pay-TV leadership in Indonesia and abroad are Sutanto Hartono (President Director/CEO, PT. Elang Mahkota Teknologi), Dalton Tanonaka (CEO, The Indonesia Channel), Beatrice Lee (Managing Director, Asia-Pacific, MP & Silva), Edward Thesiger (CEO, Indonesia, GroupM), Deepak Mathur (Senior Vice President, SES), Joe Welch (SVP, Government Relations, Asia, 21st Century Fox), Neil Gane (Senior Operations Executive, MPAA), David Khim (CEO, Viva Sky), and many others.
Providing an indispensable market overview of Indonesia, the forum will cover a number of important topics including the development of the Indonesian pay-TV industry, sports programming in the country, Indonesian content for the world, advertising rules and the advertising market in Indonesian pay-TV, and much more!
Corporate partners for Indonesia in View 2015 include Presenting Sponsor SES, Supporting Sponsor Tata Communications and Sponsors ABS, Irdeto, MEASAT and SmartCast.
