Welcome to the 13th annual
Australian Broadcasting
Digital Media Summit!
2015 is a really exciting year to be in broadcasting.
Netflix is coming. Local counterparts have launched. Linear broadcasting is facing a revolution.
This year’s agenda brings together some of the most forward-thinking trailblazers from the industry. The 2015
speaker line-up is a supreme round-up of those leaders bridging the gap between traditional and emerging media
platforms.
ESPN, Starlight Runner Entertainment, BTTV, Channel 4, ABC, SBS, AFL Media and more, will share their pitfalls and
success stories.
Well known industry commentator and journalist Jonathan Holmes will act as conference chair and he’s sure to ask
the right questions and generate the most engaging discussion.
As the former host of Media Watch and a regular columnist with The Age, Holmes is an expert in the media landscape
in Australia. And he’s certainly the best person for the job of joining our International Keynote speakers ‘on the sofa’,
in post- presentation interviews, a new feature of the 2015 agenda.
What’s more, the March event offers more networking time than ever before.
You asked for a chance to really engage and talk ‘shop’ with your peers and industry partners, and we’ve responded.
A series of peer-to-peer roundtable discussions will see all attendees come together in small groups, to tackle a topic
in a mini-workshop fashion. With a table-host to guide you and a pre-assigned subject, the roundtables are where
you can share war stories and swap strategies in a way regular conferences don’t allow. There’s no death by powerpoint, no passive participation and certainly no sales-pitches. This is a rich opportunity for you to really talk with your
colleagues and peers and network with industry folk you mightn’t otherwise get to meet!
Further to the roundtables, the Summit will also provide delegates with 3 dedicated streams to choose from,
succinctly breaking the agenda down into:
Business and strategy
Technology
Digital integration, design and execution
This means you get more content than ever before and there’s something for everyone in the team, so your entire
cross-platform portfolio can benefit from attending.
Lastly, our annual networking drinks function is a must-attend for conference delegates and speakers alike and it’s a
great place to rub shoulders with the key players in your field. At the end of day-one, the drinks reception is always
well attended and has been known to foster many relationships and partnerships over the 13 year’s this event has
been running.
We hope you see the value in attending this Summit as much as we are confident that the speakers, content and
format will excite and inspire you and your company to forge ahead in 2015.
We look forward to seeing you there,

Marc Watson, Former CEO, BTTV (UK)
BT Sport became one the most disruptive and most successful media launches in the UK since
BSkyB, when it launched in 2013. And Marc Watson was the man at the helm of the British
telco’s TV arm – BTTV - launching the channel into one of the toughest markets in the world.

TV set top boxes and five million households during his tenure. He’s in Australia for the first
time to tell that story.

PEER-to-PEER ROUNDTABLES
What
are they?
}
A roundtable is by definition “a meeting around a table” where participants brainstorm, debate and discuss a
series of relevant topics and problems. This increasingly popular event format is known to be dynamic, engaging,
fast-paced, interactive and more beneficial for attendees than the traditional conference presentation.
The Benefits
How they will work
• Engage with industry peers you might otherwise not get the chance to meet
Running in three rotations of 30 minutes each, there will be
approximately 15 roundtables to choose from, with delegates selecting
which tables they would like to attend ahead of the event.
• Hear directly from broadcasters facing the same issues and challenges as you
A central table-host will kick off the discussion, posing the difficult
questions and sparking the debate before it’s over to you, the
participants to delve into the topic at hand, share war stories, swap
strategies and talk shop!
• Gather knowledge and get answers to
your questions in an intimate, collaborative environment
• Take-away actionable insights for back at
the office!
