Del

The IBC2015 Rising Stars Programme offers a new generation of students and young professionals the chance to experience the realities of the electronic media and entertainment industry.

Delegates are part of an amazing event which includes free entry to the fourteen exhibition halls; exclusive conference sessions tackling the topics that really matter to young professionals; exclusive networking opportunities and an invitation to the IBC Hackfest party.

Delegates will get to see and handle the latest technology and learn about how the industry is developing; meeting established, successful and highly influential industry figures, as well as some of the brightest and most ambitious young entrepreneurs working in the industry today. The Rising Stars Programme offers the chance to network and meet others in a similar position, as well as to gain inspiration from current Rising Stars who are already making their way in the business.

Highlights of the Rising Stars 2015 programme include:

VICE News the ‘News in a Flash’ Session

News delivery and consumption is changing dramatically and companies that redefine news as we know it will talk about how they experiment and innovate to create and deliver content that attracts audiences, enhances user experience and increases engagement. From VICE - the largest youth media company in the world - Head of Content and Creative Director of VICE Media Benelux, Perre van den Brink, will lead the discussion.

Craft Skills Masterclass with Scot Barbour

From concept to camera, light to lens, and stream to screen, delegates have the chance to learn from award-winning filmmaker Scot Barbour some of the vast array of methods, mediums and invaluable milestones that comprise the storytelling journey towards what he likes to call ‘the heart of hell.’
