More than 6000 broadcast professionals are expected to attend the first Middle East Broadcasters Conference and Exhibition (MEB), organisers of the show claim. The event, which will include an award ceremony that recognises excellence in Middle East television programming and production, will be held in Beirut from December 8 to 10 this year. “The timing for this show could not be better,” said Ahmad Al Maaz, president of MEB. “Broadcasting in the region has really taken off in the last couple of years – 55 new stations went to air in the last year and a half. Many of the over 200 stations in the Middle East are currently preparing to upgrade their operations. MEB is ready to help them make this transition.” With the theme of “Setting New Standards in Broadcasting”, the conference sessions at MEB 2005 will cover topics ranging from “Increasing the advertising pie” to “Management of an all news TV station.” Over 30 leading media experts will speak at the conference. MEB 2005 will feature three exhibitions – a broadcast technology exhibition, a programming exhibition, and a talent showcase. One of the highlights of the show will be a fully functional High Definition (HD) television station that will broadcast straight from the floor of the MEB 2005.
