Asia Video Pulse March 2024

Welcome to the first issue of the Asia Video Pulse newsletter for 2024! It’s been a busy start of the year for the AVIA team as governments around the region continue to keep the Policy team busy with numerous submissions, and CAP continues its fight against piracy in Asia, with more site blocking and legislative action.

AVIA also kicked off our event calendar with the Asia Video Summit, held from 13 – 14 March in Hong Kong, as part of the HK Entertainment Expo. The event was a tremendous success, with a lot of new, and familiar faces, bringing the video industry together for a much needed in-person catch-up. We were also privileged to have welcomed an inspiring delegation of HK SMEs and students who had the chance to exhibit their innovative business ideas at the Summit.

Do stay in the loop and download our newsletter for a comprehensive overview of the team’s efforts on the Policy and Piracy front, a recap of Asia Video Summit 2024 and upcoming events to look out for!
