Industry group Casbaa is moving its annual industry conference away from Hong Kong for the first time, relocating to Macau.
Not for profit association Casbaa represents companies from all segments of the pay TV business in Asia. Its annual confab has been held in Hong Kong since its first edition.
This year’s convention, the 22nd, will be the first in Macau and will be located in the Studio City resort. Casbaa has come under pressure as other industry events in the region, such as APOS in Bali, have established themselves.
Casbaa CEO Christopher Slaughter said: “It will be the first time CASBAA has ever held an event in Macau, and we are thrilled to be able to bring the region’s pay TV industry together to experience all that this exciting enclave has to offer.”
Co-board member responsible for convention Todd Miller, who is CEO of regional pay TV business Celestial Tiger Entertainment, added: “This year, by choosing Macau’s Studio City, we’re adding a certain ‘show-biz’ quality to the event.”
