11th HbbTV Symposium and Awards


November 28-29, 2023

The 11th HbbTV Symposium and Awards on November 28-29, 2023 provides a unique platform to present and discuss the latest developments in the connected TV industry.

The annual key industry summit, targeting platform operators, broadcasters, advertisers and adtechs, standards organisations and technology companies, is co-hosted with Comunicare Digitale, an Italian association for the development of digital television.

For the first time, the HbbTV Symposium is split into a traditional conference format – with keynotes, presentations and round tables – on the first day, while the second day runs as an unconference in which the participants decide on the agenda, topics and discussions, actively shaping and driving the sessions and conclusions. Materials related to the second day are made available in the Unconference Hub.

The event also hosts the 6th edition of the HbbTV Awards, featuring a wide range of categories designed to acclaim best practice and excellence in the HbbTV community.
