Under the theme of ‘innovative broadcasting’, this event features two panels on Public Service Broadcasting and television, emerging platforms, and digital media, as well as a panel on radio. It is the ideal opportunity to find out about new ideas and projects; developments in content; innovative broadcasting; discuss the switch over from analogue TV; and look at the launch of digital radio.
Speakers represent major Azerbaijan and international broadcasters from television and radio, content producers; internet and digital media, government and representatives of the national and international NGOs.

The international expert is Rasto Kuzel with Memo 98. The project has also been supported by Gulnara Akhundova, International Media Support, who compiled and edited the report.
