HbbTV Symposium and Awards 2024: Call for Speakers

Geneva, 4 June 2024 – The 12th HbbTV Symposium and Awards on 14-15 November 2024 in London, UK will provide a unique platform to present and discuss the latest developments in the connected TV industry. The HbbTV Association, which co-hosts the event with Everyone TV (BBC/ITV/Channel 4/Channel 5), is inviting industry executives and experts to address the top-level audience as speakers in the conference programme.

This year’s key topics are:

  • Consumer-facing services and innovations in HbbTV markets
  • HbbTV Operator Application
  • Targeted Advertising including watermarks for set-top box markets
  • HbbTV Test Suite and Interoperability
  • DVB-I and linear (live) IP channels

The HbbTV Association would prefer presentations about user experiences and the business opportunities opened using HbbTV technology, particularly when supported by case studies of live services.

Submissions of other, additional topics will also be considered.

The presentations shall not exceed 10 minutes at maximum. The submissions will be evaluated by the HbbTV Marketing and Education Working Group (MEWG) which is in charge of organising the event.

Following the successful introduction of the new concept last year, the HbbTV Symposium will again consist of a traditional conference on the first day, followed by the glamourous HbbTV Awards ceremony in the evening. The second day will feature an unconference at which participants decide about the agenda, topics and discussions, actively shaping and driving the sessions and conclusions.
