AVIA hosts the Asia Video Summit in Singapore amidst a time of seismic change, competition and consolidation

by ACN Editor
Held for the second year under the rebranded Asia Video Industry Association, the Asia Video Summit continues to address the State of the Video Industry focusing on five themes representing the most pressing issues the industry faces today.

The Asia Video Industry Association (AVIA) will be holding its second Asia Video Summit this year from 4 – 6 November at the Ritz Carlton, Millenia, Singapore.

With over 100 speakers representing 80 companies across the Asia Pacific region, the Asia Video Summit brings to its delegates a riveting line-up of sessions covering the themes of Business Models, Advertising, News, Human Capital and Policy. 

With video delivery migrating on-line, monetisation becomes entirely different to traditional Pay TV, and the right Business Model remains the central question for the industry.  And as the industry continues to witness major consolidation, what is not often discussed is the impact it has on the Human Capital that makes up this workforce. Also, with social media and YouTube cornering the Advertising market, how does the industry curate premium content services that attract the appropriate share of advertising for the time people spend consuming it?  But of all the content services, News is the one that is at the forefront of the most active debates in 2019.  With more people relying on social media for News, the role of curated news services is more important than ever before to counter the fake news epidemic.  And as curated video continues to migrate to internet delivery services, and online piracy remains one of the biggest threats to the video industry, governments are now waking up to the reality that the internet is a place that needs law and order. Do we have the right Policies in place for the curated video industry today?

Louis Boswell, CEO, AVIA commented, “I am looking forward to this year’s event.  This is the one time of the year where we ask our stakeholders to come together to discuss the key issues we face as an industry.  In a non-partisan and honest environment, with more to discuss than ever before, the Asia Video Summit is critical as we plot the future trajectory of our industry.
