March is Filled With Exciting Industry Events

Mar 08, 2021 By Michael Darer

Virtual events, webcasts, and exhibitions continue in March, and Signiant is participating alongside industry leaders and innovators in a number of summits!

HPA Tech Retreat

March 15-24

As the pre-eminent gathering of industry-leading thinkers and innovation-focused companies engaged in the creation, management, and dissemination of content, the HPA Tech Retreat offers an incredible forum to learn from exciting M&E voices: both veterans and emerging leaders. If it affects the way organizations handle media, it’s discussed at the retreat!

For Signiant’s part, we have our own thought leadership session, presented by CEO Margaret Craig and CTO Ian Hamilton. Entitled “Build, Buy…or Don’t Bother: Making Practical Decisions About the Media Tech Stack,” this conversation explores how shifting market dynamics and the impact of new technologies are influencing where companies land on the build vs. buy continuum. Additionally, CEO Margaret Craig will participate in a special Women in Post roundtable, discussing how to bridge the gap between the media technology vendor perspective and the customer perspective, through the lens of someone who has been in both roles. You can also stop by our virtual booth to learn more.

Speakers include those from LiveU and UAE Pro League among others. Signiant is proud to be a sponsor of this event focused on Innovation in Sports Broadcasting in the MENA Region.

MediaTech 360 Summit

March 25-26

With a focus on the technologies and trends shaping and governing the future of modern media, the MediaTech 360 Summit is sure to be a thrilling peek into where the industry is headed, and what solutions will ultimately take it there. In the wake of the forced innovation brought on by the 2020 pandemic, this year’s summit is sure to be one of the most informative and exciting yet. Challenges, opportunities, and beyond: if you want to understand M&E in 2021, this is the place to be.

On Thursday, March 25, at 4:30 PM GMT/11:30 AM ET, Mike Flathers, Signiant’s Chief Solutions Officer, participates in a panel discussion dissecting the topics explored in the TVB Europe 2021 MediaTech Outlook Report. Joined by Sinead Greenaway, Chief Operations and Technology Officer at UKTV, Mark Harrison, founder of the DPP, and Tal Hewitt, partner at EY Parthenon, Mike and company will cover a range of subjects, including how businesses can shore up their technology stack to continue to empower remote workflows in 2021. While many scrambled to adopt a new remote strategy out of necessity in 2020, the efficacy and flexibility of this new approach to production has proven undeniable. For businesses wanting to move forward, backed by the strength of remote workflows, now is the time to build upon the foundations laid in the past year.

A year after lockdown, March events show M&E moving forward

A year after pandemic shockwaves shook so many businesses around the world, media leaders are looking to the potential of the future. We look forward to sharing insights and connecting (albeit virtually) with others from the industry at these upcoming events.
