The HbbTV Association has announced that its Symposium and Awards will take place in Prague, Czech Republic in November.
The event, the 10th HbbTV Symposium and Awards, will be staged on November 9 and 10. The Symposium is an annual key summit of the connected TV industry, targeting platform operators, broadcasters, advertisers and adtechs, standards organisations and technology companies, and will be co-hosted with the Czech Association of Commercial Television (AKTV).
Information on the conference agenda, awards categories and participation will be revealed at a later date.
Vincent Grivet, chair of the HbbTV Association, said: “After last year’s very successful 9th HbbTV Symposium and Awards in Paris, attended by around 180 visitors, we are excited about holding our next event in Prague, reflecting the important role and increasing significance of the HbbTV standard in Central and Eastern European countries. The move also values the strong engagement of local market players in launching large-scale, innovative HbbTV services.”
The announcement comes several weeks after the HbbTV Association revealed the addition of seven new partners over the past 12 months. In total, the association has 75 members from across the broadcast and broadband industry.
