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. A free event, it provides a truly unique flavour of the workplace with an unrivalled array of business personalities who have been invited to inspire, educate and challenge those attending. 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.’

Digital Creators - The New Mainstream

As online stars are becoming more popular than mainstream celebrities, there is a growing demand for digital creators. The most popular can earn millions of dollars. In this exciting session Dutch YouTube stars David Harms and Nikkie de Jager explain their daily routines and share tips on creating content that wins subscribers.

In addition to the tailored Rising Stars programme designed to help young professionals further their career, delegates get access to What Caught My Eye sessions; Saturday and Sunday keynotes; the IBC Big Screen Experience and the latest blockbuster films; the IBC Future Zone, IBC Drone Zone, IBC Hackfest party and the IBC Awards Ceremony. There is also the option to join the Touch & Connect Online Community, where Rising Stars can have an expanding online presence within the electronic media and entertainment industry, keeping up to date with weekly topics, questions, interviews, competitions and the latest information.
