Pacific Media Partnership Conference
The 9th meeting of the Pacific Media Partnership will ramp up the vital work of addressing the major media issues for broadcasters, new media and partners in the Pacific Islands region in a co-operative and practical manner.

These key issues that broadcasters in the region have identified will include:

  • Digital transformation: tailoring solutions for all broadcasters, large and small.
  • Content development on a budget: making and sharing program content efficiently and effectively.
  • Shattering the glass barrier: how broadcasters can move beyond the TV screen to use mobile technologies and social media to engage audiences as producers and consumers.

A special feature of this year’s Pacific Media Partnership Conference for TV and radio broadcasters will be masterclass workshops on using mobile technologies in news, documentaries and other story telling – how we can do it and why.
