Hanoi, Vietnam, 23-24 October
pleased to invite you and your organisation to our 53rd ABU Sports Group
Meetings to be held in Hanoi, Vietnam from 23– 24 October 2013 hosted this year
by VTV and VOV, the national broadcasters of Vietnam.
You will note that for this meeting, we are going to be
focused very specifically on ABU activities and issues. Given the short
duration of the Sports Group Meeting we will be open to ABU Sports Group Full, Additional Full and Associate members only.
for 53rd ABU Sports Group Meeting is “The Challenges and Opportunities in Media
Rights Acquisition”. This is a follow up discussion on the steps made by the
Sports Group Members at our last meeting in Bali, and is complimentary to the
overall theme of this year’s General Assembly. By committing to bid for major
events through the ABU, members made a strong statement to Broadcast Rights
marketers that we are serious about making regional deals that benefit all
parties. However, are we all on the same page? Do we all have the same agenda?
How can we resolve local differences and neutralise local competition? All
these questions need to be asked and answered in Hanoi.
Broadcast Rights Committee and the Sports Group Finance Committee will meet on
the afternoon of 22nd October and the Sports Group Meeting will be held on 23rd
October and the morning of the 24th. The afternoon of the 24th
will be devoted to unilateral meetings between members and the ABU production
The online registration is now open on the ABU website at www.abu.org.my.
