Hong Kong : CASBAA today announced that the Prime Minister of Thailand, H.E. Abhisit Vejjajiva, will deliver the opening address to CASBAA’s “Thailand in View” pay-TV seminar to be held in Bangkok on Thursday, January 20, 2011 at the Centara Grand & Bangkok Convention Centre at CentralWorld.
“We are delighted to welcome H.E. Abhisit Vejjajiva to this important opportunity to highlight the immense potential for Thailand’s pay-TV industry,” said Marcel Fenez, the Chairman of CASBAA. “The Prime Minister’s participation truly underlines how important the broadcasting sector is to the nation.”
“Thailand in View”, organised in association with the Satellite Television Association of Thailand, will examine the opportunities and challenges affecting the broadcasting sector and how they are altering the national media and communications landscape through changes in broadcasting laws, increased distribution and the fast-growing advertising market.
“It is a rare occurrence to have such a selection of top-level government officials and industry professionals together at one event,” continued Fenez. “This is a clear indication of how seriously the leaders of both government and business take the development of the pay-TV sector in Thailand.”
