The second day of this year’s NEM started with a salutation from Apostolos Triantafyllou, a senior CEE and Central Asia sales vice-president in Eutelsat, a leading satellite operator. During his speech Triantafyllou described an Eastern Europe region as one of the more dynamic markets in the world where trends are followed actively, which NEM also proves.
The first panel followed after the salutations, named “How do the public and commercial televisions fight the economic crisis?”, which was moderated by Scott Roxborough, European editor of The Hollywood Reporter news. Main speakers on the panel were Henning Tewes (chairman of the board of RTL Croatia), Pete Smith (director of the Greek Antenna International) and Pavel Stanchev (director of BTV Media Group, Bulgaria). The focus of the panel was on the analysis of the market with regards to the economic crisis that Croatia, Greece and Bulgaria experienced.
After the lunch break came an interview with Tim Daly, the main actor in “Madam Secretary”, and it was organized by Pickbox. Antonija Mandić spent a pleasant half an hour talking to Daly, where they briefly covered all the segments of his life.
