IBC Content Everywhere MENA to Observe Martyrs’ Day in UAE

Del

As a mark of respect to the UAE government’s recent announcement of a public holiday on 30 November 2015 in honour of Emirati armed forces who have lost their lives defending the sovereignty of the nation, IBC has decided to cancel our IBC Content Everywhere MENA event which was due to take place on 29-30 November 2015.

“MENA is an exciting and growing content market, and IBC looks forward to taking an increasingly active role in developing the bridge between the region and the global industry, building on the success of our inaugural IBC Content Everywhere MENA event which took place earlier this year”, commented Michael Crimp, CEO of IBC, “I would like to take this opportunity to thank our MENA industry partners for their continued support of IBC’s global Content Everywhere project.”

IBC looked to consolidate the programme into a single day and sponsors were largely supportive of the move. IBC also looked for another date but this proved unworkable. Traditionally the UAE government adds further days around national holidays leading to a loss in confirmed delegates; feedback indicates that this trend would continue for Martyrs’ Day.

IBC continues to demonstrate its commitment to the region by announcing dates for its IBC Content Everywhere MENA 2016 event, to be held at the Madinat Jumeirah from 31 October – 2 November 2016. This event will follow the format of the successful January 2015 show and consist of a high quality exhibition and conference featuring local and international speakers.
