The Asia Video Industry Association (AVIA) provides Insight in two ways – through attending our events and conferences held throughout the year across Asia and the publications & reports we produce. Our conferences are designed to help members to stay ahead of the competition and our events are made up of industry leaders, game changers, disruptors and technology partners in video from across the ecosystem, coming together to create the future of video.
Conferences & Forums
The AVIA programme team works closely with its committees to formulate and recommend actions, strategies and policies for AVIA conferences and forums; designed to anticipate and address its member’s needs.
In 2018, AVIA launched the Asia Video Summit, an evolution from the CASBAA Convention. The Asia Video Summit is the defining conference for the video industry and ecosystem across the Asia Pacific region. The aim is to understand the state of the video industry – the opportunities and the challenges faced by different sectors of the industry and how together we can grow and forge a successful future. Attended by over 180 companies, it brings together some of the biggest industry names to discuss the most pertinent issues of today. With advancements in technology, evolving business models and ever changing consumer behaviour, the Asia Video Summit brings you the best insights, debates and discussions that define the state of the video industry today.
