CABSAT 2024 set to redefine media and entertainment landscape

CABSAT 2024, the conference for the broadcast, satellite, and content sectors, is poised to shake up the media and entertainment landscape with its innovative offerings tailored for participants. Scheduled from May 21 to 23, 2024, at the Dubai World Trade Centre, this year’s edition promises to deliver cutting-edge technologies and diverse content that will redefine the future of entertainment.

A recent study by PwC predicts that AI will inject up to USD 15.7 trillion into the global economy by 2030, underlining the transformative potential of emerging technologies. Grand View Research reinforces this outlook, reporting that the global AI in media & entertainment market is set to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 26% from 2023 to 2030, indicating substantial industry expansion.

With over 450 exhibitors and an anticipated attendance of more than 18,000 visitors, CABSAT is positioned to catalyze this growth, offering unparalleled networking opportunities and insights into industry developments. This year’s event boasts a plethora of exhibitions and features designed to provide deep insights into the latest advancements in the media sector.

The Co-Production Salon at CABSAT will serve as a dedicated meeting hub, fostering business opportunities to stimulate investments in Arabic content and attract foreign film and TV projects to the MEASA region. Last year’s session facilitated over 350 targeted co-production and content partnership meetings, resulting in significant deals reaching USD 8 million in total investments.

The Content Congress will bring together professionals from the media, broadcast, and technology realms to dissect trends and explore ideas shaping the content lifecycle. Meanwhile, the Virtual Production Studio demo, exclusively available at CABSAT 2024, will offer filmmakers guidance on leveraging virtual sets in various productions.

Industry leaders are also eager to showcase their latest innovations at CABSAT.
