Again this year the CBA is offering bursaries to visit IBC in September 2012. Applications are invited from staff working for member organisations in the African Continent, Asia, the Caribbean and Pacific Islands. Applicants should hold a position in their company, which has responsibility for technical matters at a policy or planning level and for which a visit to IBC would benefit them and their companies. However, due to financial restrictions they would not otherwise be able to attend. Only one application from a single company will be considered so it is advantageous that companies ensure that there strongest candidate applies. In the event of multiple applicants from the same company only the first one received by the CBA will be considered.
Closing date for applications is 14th May 2012 and successful applicants should be notified by May 31st.
The bursary will cover the economy return airfare to Amsterdam in the Netherlands, five nights bed and breakfast accommodation and a daily subsistence allowance. In addition the successful applicant will have access to all conference proceedings and the exhibition. It will be the applicants’ responsibility to obtain a visa to visit the Netherlands. Letters of invitation will be provided. They will also be required to purchase the cheapest available airfare locally, the cost of which will be reimbursed by the CBA.
IBC is the largest international conference for the professional broadcast and media industry. The conferences will consist of technical papers, business and operational matters as well as programme related sessions. More information is available at www.ibc.org. There will be in excess of 1000 manufacturers and service providers exhibiting.
IBC takes place from the 6th until the 11th September 2012.
