eur§reg 2014 in Zurich

The internet enriches media markets with new players and business models. The audiovisual world has also gone global. What are the implications? Are we headed for a limitless audiovisual market? Are barriers to free trade needed to preserve social values? How can the European television industry hold its ground in this environment? What are the implications of an increasingly global and non-linear programme services market on broadcasters? Does deregulation help European TV broadcasters to assert themselves against the ‘new entrants’?

These and other questions will be debated on 27 March at eur§reg 2014 at the Lake Side Conference Centre in Zurich. Under the banner "Limits to Global Convergence", international experts from the audiovisual industry and the regulatory and research sectors will present and discuss their concepts of the globalisation of the world of television.

The Conference is being organised by the Swiss Federal Office of Communications (BAKOM), with support from the media institutions in Germany (“die Medienanstalten”) and the Austrian RTR GmbH. The event will be held in German and English; simultaneous translation will be provided.

EPRA Chairman Jean-François Furnémont as well as EPRA founding father Jürgen Brautmeier will participate as speakers in the event together with representatives of the Swiss, Austrian and German regulatory authorities and key stakeholders.
