The Cable & Satellite Broadcasting Association of Asia (CASBAA) has announced details of the ninth annual CASBAA Convention, which will run from December 4-6 in Singapore.

The convention is to be housed in Singapore's new Theatres on The Bay complex, which is scheduled to open in mid-October.

The event will run in parallel with the Asia Television Forum market and conference, the Asia Animation Week and the 'on-air' promotions-led Promax BDA conference.

"We believe the audience for the CASBAA Convention 2002 will be bigger and better than ever," says James Ross, Chairman of the CASBAA Convention 2002 Committee. "The promotional opportunities provided by the Convention, including the Golf Day and CASBAA Ball, will be unrivalled for sponsors and exhibitors alike."

This year's conference, entitled 'Blueprint for Success', will focus on the core business values of the pay-TV industry in Asia. CASBAA is bringing together a group of international speakers for the convention. The project will encompass close relationships with Singapore government bodies such as the Economic Development Board and the Singapore Broadcasting Authority.

"We know that the CASBAA Convention is the pre-eminent regional forum for Asia's cable and satellite industries and we intend that this year's event will be even more relevant as we debate such issues as the development of digital infrastructure, advertising and research, local production, the china opportunity and interactive television services. With our tradition of creating a complete broadcast event catering for all sections of our industry this is going to be a very exciting year," says Simon Twiston Davies, CEO, CASBAA.
