This event has become the main meeting of those involved in the business of pay TV, electronic media and telecommunications in Latin America. From today until August 6 in Sao Paulo, the Transamerica Expo Center will host the event.
The annual meeting of the Brazilian Pay TV Association (ABTA), organized by Converge Comunicações, consists of an exhibition and a conference bringing together the top leaders of these activities to discuss the most important topics of the sector with specialists, analysts and authorities.
In panels and sessions of the event will be discussed the challenges to the growth of a sector that faces regulatory requirements and competition from online video distribution companies. To maintain competitiveness, the pay TV and broadband sector has innovated by offering services and new video delivery technologies.
