We are excited to attend and participate in this year’s ABU General Assembly, where numerous meetings and great presentations are set to take place. Here at InPlayer, we are also happy to announce that our Head of Engineering and Operations Nenad Cubrinovski is also one of the speakers at this year’s assembly in Istanbul.
TRT is the host of this year’s annual assembly, which will start on 24th October and close on 31st October 2015. Taking place at the Hilton Istanbul Bosphorus Hotel and Conference Center, this will be an opportunity to look not only at content, technology, providing news and current affairs, sport and entertainment, but the role of media as a game-changer in education, health, disaster preparedness and nation-building.
