CASBAA Convention 2016

We are just two months away from the Macau event, and with that in mind, we have just released the CASBAA Convention 2016 Programme. This year we are celebrating CASBAA’s 25th birthday, and 2016 is also The Year of the Operator.  So far some 40 platform operators from 15 countries across the region have confirmed their attendance at this year’s Convention, with many more still to come.  Be sure to join us in Macau to meet with your
business partners, create new relationships, and discover new opportunities.  Be on hand as global players, cable providers from across Asia, and various local market telcos share their insights as they shape the environment for the next generation of operators.

Early Bird rates expire on Friday 09 September, so get yourself registered now!


Staying with the CASBAA Convention, a sincere “Thank You!” to those companies who have already agreed to sponsor the event.

CASBAA Thailand in View 2016 conference in Bangkok is just around the corner.  The CASBAA “Thailand in View 2016” Market Report

OTT & Connected Media Group

During the August OTT Group webinar CASBAA member Olswang presented “What’s really shaping OTT: Rights, Regulation and M&A.”

With so much hype on new regional and global launches, innovative technologies and payments platforms, it’s easy to forget three “hidden” factors shaping the OTT landscape. In this special session, Olswang Partners, Andrew Stott and Matt Pollins, argued that each of these factors is playing a key role in the development of OTT.
