International radio and TV meet in Cuba, India expected to attend

NEW DELHI: A large contingent of officials from Prasar Bharati apart from the private industry is expected to attend the Radio and Television Convention Cuba 2014, International Radio and Television Fair and Exhibition in Havana. 


Organised by the Cuban Institute of Radio and Television, the meet is aimed at targeting executives, producers and specialists to promote the exchange of ideas and views, the collaboration and marketing of TV products, technology and services.


It will be held from 19 to 24 October at the Havana International Conference Center, Cuba.


During the Convention, there will be audiovisual presentations, exhibitions, sales and free presentations, aimed at creating a common space of interest for marketing technologies and productions for radio and television.


With the purpose of updating the knowledge of professionals from both media on the production process, a scientific programme dedicated to the influence of popular radio and television products in the formation of moral values and the defense of peace has been organised, according to Cuban Institute of Radio and Television president Danylo Sirio Lopez.


The analysis of this subject will tackle the massive and imitative nature, and the extensive consumption of soap operas, as well as the role of sport programmes as an expression of the noble Olympic ideal and the notion that it’s at the stadium and not in the battlefield where nations should face each other.


For this purpose, a series of workshops, master classes and other theoretical and practical activities will be held, among which there will be this year the Meeting of the Global Net of Stations and Channels in defense of mankind, the International Workshop on Programming for Childhood and Adolescence and the Workshop of Young Radio and Television Creators.


The Radio and Television Festivals, programme contests and public good spots to award the prizes ‘Sonido paraVer’ for Radio and ‘Cubavision 2014’ for TV will be held to encourage the participation of producers.


A total of 34 countries with 150 companies participated in the first festival last year.
