Case Studies & Best Practices

Inspiring Speakers

Historical Location

Annual IBC side event for the digital leaders

The Multiscreen Salon brings together business leaders, innovative companies, and professionals from the media industry. We focus on tangible case studies, insightful data and best-practices in an intimate and inspiring setting. Organised by a collaboration of industry partners without press, sales pitches, or sponsored stories and focussed on networking and inspiration.

After the event there is a boat ride through the beautiful canals of Amsterdam for networking and sharing experience. Followed by a world class dinner with all attendees, partners and speakers.

The theme this year is LIVE

Digital players are now creating TV bundles for over-the-top viewing, creating original content and buying the rights for major live sports events. At the same time Facebook, Twitch and Twitter are heavily investing in live streaming for new creators. The interest in creating and monetising live experiences is growing rapidly. As live content offers a shared experience with other viewers, it's ‘fear of missing out’ content that stands out in an overpopulated on-demand world.

Join us during the IBC for an afternoon of case studies, discussion and insight into the future of live and the multiscreen industry.
