Record number of British technology companies on the GREAT Britain Pavilion at IBC 2016

IBC 2016, 9-13 September 2016 – A record number of British broadcast technology manufacturers and service providers supported by UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) and managed by export specialists Tradefair on behalf of techUK will arrive in Amsterdam in early September to showcase the latest in British innovation and expertise at IBC 2016.

Clearly visible under ‘Technology is GREAT Britain & Northern Ireland’ signage strategically located throughout the exhibition halls, 32 British companies with the support of UKTI will meet and engage with the more than 55,000 delegates expected to attend the five days of the show.

Tradefair Managing Director Mark Birchall said, “Of those 55,000, nearly a quarter hold the title of CEO, COO, president, or chairman, so it’s one of the best opportunities in the broadcast business to get in front of people who can assess your products and services, develop meaningful business relationships and, ultimately, take decisions – often on the spot.”

New to IBC and the UKTI Tradeshow Access Scheme (TAP) this year: RedRat, Stand 11. B30F, will have a new version of its set top box testing and control product irNetBox; and Squared Paper, on Stand 8.B38A, will demonstrate Busby, a collection of tools that enable the creation of an enterprise service bus for media operations.
