Telecommunications & Media Forum
Tuesday 26 – Wednesday 27 March 2019
Kindly hosted by The Belgian Institute for Postal Services and Telecommunications (BIPT)
The IIC were delighted to be back in Brussels with the BIPT. Delegates were welcomed by Andrea Millwood Hargrave, Director General, International Institute of Communications, and Michel Van Bellinghen, Chairman of the Council, Institute for Postal Services and Telecommunications (BIPT).
We introduced a wide variety of topics, asking the big questions to debate with peers. Sessions covered topical areas including the impact of the implementation of the revised AVMSD on content producers and distributors; content regulation into the future; the possible reopening of the eCommerce Directive, and the future of competition and sectoral regulation with a look to the EC Code as to what the priorities of the next Commission could be.
The Forum was open to regulators and those from the telecommunications, media and technology sectors.
Forum presentations were on the record, but subsequent discussions were under the Chatham House Rule. This enabled participants to speak freely, facilitating the open and honest exchange of information, and maximising opportunities for the sharing of best practice among peers.
