ABU’s brand new digital content forum #ABUdigital debuted in Kuala Lumpur featuring a series of inspiring talks and presentations on digital concepts and trends from around the world. Bringing together more than 20 expert speakers from Asia, Europe, North America and Africa, the event offered an array of exciting sessions covering major topics including digital storytelling, immersive journalism, virtual reality, data-driven innovation, smart speakers, blockchain and Artificial Intelligence (AI).

Digital content creators and experts from major global brands such as CNN, BBC, NHK, CCTV and TRT shared their inspiring experiences and case studies. They were joined by new media professionals and specialists from major European broadcasters and consultants representing independent digital establishments and brands.

The last day of the event featured six workshops covering several digital genres ranging from interactive documentaries to innovative data and social media to mobile journalism.

Nearly 200 participants from several ABU member organisations attended the forum and benefited from the various sessions offered throughout the two days of the inaugural edition.
