Casbaa chairman Marcel Fenez says, ?Annually, this is the most important gathering for our industry in Asia. While the market is rightly dazzled by the promise of the new technologies, our most urgent task is to identify new business models and the most creative content as we develop a better understanding of what is achievable within the diverse Asian marketplace. That?s the theme for Casbaa 2006.?

The event will feature dedicated sessions on South Asia (India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka) and a look at the key emerging markets of Indonesia and Vietnam, along with special forums on IPTV, mobile video and HDTV. There will also be a special session on Japan.

?The Casbaa TV Awards 2006 have been designed to highlight that marrying creative options with the power of television remains the most inventive of advertising mediums as the industry moves beyond traditional ad placement into on-line integration, program sponsorship, ad-funded content production and off-air events and promotions.?
