LONDON, May 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- As the world's leading electronic media and entertainment event, IBC is looking to help encourage and nurture new talent. Young professionals entering the industry are being invited to take part in the Rising Stars Programme, which will run on Sunday 9 and Monday 10 September during IBC2012 at the RAI in Amsterdam.
IBC is organized around content: from creation and production, through to what is needed to manage it and the issues and technologies involved in its delivery. Every year over 50,000 visitors from 160+ countries attend IBC with its fourteen different exhibition halls and more than 1,300 international suppliers. Key figures in the broadcast and media industries come to IBC for its unique combination of a world-renowned trade show and exhibition, combined with an industry-respected conference.
Recognising the importance of investing in the future of the industry, the Rising Stars Programme offers a variety of opportunities for young professionals to learn about the latest innovations from top creative and technology players alongside the chance to meet with their peers and have some fun in Amsterdam.
The programme itself is free of charge, with flexibility to cater for all interests and enabling participants to increase their knowledge, get a unique view on the latest trends, build new contacts and learn how to impress potential employers. Delegates just need to book their travel to Amsterdam and find somewhere to sleep.
In addition to the opportunity to network with other creative, business and technology professionals from across Europe, the Rising Stars Programme offers free entry to all fourteen halls of the exhibition and the Industry Insight conference sessions, together with access to all of IBC's unique feature areas including IBC Big Screen, IBC Connected World, IBC Production Village, Workflow Solutions Village, Future Zone and the IBC Awards.
Aware that there is an enormous amount to be learned, IBC has also built in some recreational time for delegates to relax. This includes a free ticket to the Rising Stars Party at one of Amsterdam's top clubs, with VIP area access and free drinks to allow delegates to unwind and get to know their peers in a relaxing and fun environment.
To become part of the IBC experience, any young professional in the industry can check out the programme and register their interest through the online form on the IBC website. Even if they have already registered as an Exhibition Visitor, IBC will upgrade the pass to allow access to the Rising Stars Programme. To find out more and register, visit www.ibc.org/risingstars
