Working with global organisations

In 1969 our board of directors, trustees and members comprised those at the forefront of the broadcast industry. In 2020 as our remit has widened and the telecoms media and technology sectors have converged, we still pride ourselves on having as strategic IIC Partners the major content platforms, telecoms operators and technology businesses. As well as regulators and policy makers from all continents.
