Countdown begins for APOS 2018

BALI: And so it’s time for another Asia Pacific Operators Summit (APOS) in Bali’s now famed Ayana Resort. The team at Singapore-based Media Partners Asia has drawn up another power-packed three days with the main opening Disney-backed reception planned for 24 April evening.

Among the big names slated to speak at APOS this year are India’s minister of electronics and information technology and law and justice Ravi Shankar Prasad, Viacom president and CEO Bob Bakish, Discovery International president and CEO Jean Briac Perrette, Kudelski group chairman and CEO Andre Kudelski,  Emeral Media managing director Paul Aiello, Blue Ant Media co-founder and CEO Michael MacMillan,  20th Century Fox TV Distribution global distribution president Gina Brogi, Astro Malayasia executive director and group CEO Rohana Rozhan and BBC Studios director Mark Linsey.

For those wanting an insight into the Asian market, APOS has been proving to be a good starting point. This year’s sessions cover a broad swathe of topics right from the role of content for telcos, the changing face of China’s network and content landscape, a focus on how Amazon is dealing with two markets–India and Japan (Ritiesh Sidhwani is on this panel with James Farrell–the head of content for APAC), how YouTube is monetising the mobile opportunity in Asia, how entertainment and broadband will shape up in future; the role of gaming; the new wave of digital content; how online video advertising is evolving in Asia; live sports; among many others.

Special country sessions have been planned as well with one on how India is measuring up in the age of digital convergence and feature Hathway’s Rajan Gupta, Tata Sky MD & CEO Harit Nagpal and Viacom18 CEO Sudhanshu Vats. Other country focuses include: Korean TV and entertainment, telcos in Taiwan, Indonesia’s broadcast transition; Australia’s strategic shifts; Singapore TV, and one on the media in the Philippines.

A gaggle of sponsors and partners have hopped on to be a part of MPA’s APOS. Stay tuned for updates.
