Record attendance at IBC 2012

ibc_logo_240_02The IBC came to a close on Tuesday recording an increase of 0.93% on attendance figures compared to last year. The number of attendees – conference delegates, exhibition visitors and exhibitors – was 50,937. This compares with 2011 which had 50,462 attendees.

That we have drawn a record audience at a time when there are still economic challenges in many parts of the world – and when broadcasters are dealing with massive events like the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics Games and US presidential elections – clearly shows that, above all, IBC is relevant to people at every level in our industry, said Michael Crimp, IBC’s CEO.

The ManyCUES Stand App launched by Scenario 2 Corporation at IBC helped immensely in connecting attendees to specific company exhibitor stands that best matched their objectives in a fast and efficient manner inside the large RAI venue.  

Next year’s dates are 12-17 September for the conference and 13-17 September for the exhibition. To playback Keynote Sessions, Sports Day sessions and the Content Creation and Innovation Stream, you can log in via this IBC page.
