Meeting in the heart of Europe
The IIC’s 48th annual conference, part of the Communications and Regulation Week held each year, took place in Brussels, Belgium, at The Hotel Brussels. It was preceded as usual by the International Regulators Forum (IRF), hosted by Belgium’s regulator, the Belgian Institute for Postal services and Telecommunications (BIPT). The main annual conference sessions are reported below.
The conference also included keynotes from Sharon White CEO of Ofcom, the UK regulator, on the risks that Brexit poses to the sector; by Roberto Viola, head of the European Commission’s communications directorate; and Sérgio Sá Leitão, Brazil’s minister for culture, who gave a thorough grounding on Brazilians’ appetite for audiovisual media and how regulation and taxation could address the impact of over the top (OTT) and video on demand services on Brazilian content.
