“MEDIA IN A TIME OF CRISIS: CREATIVITY AND INNOVATION FOR MULTIPLATFORM”

In 2020 COVID 19 pandemic swept the world and changed our lives forever. This is the biggest challenge to humanity for generations. Undoubtedly, the ABU members raised to this challenge and continue to provide wide audiences with vital lifesaving information, education and entertainment. How to serve the public during a global crisis naturally would be the focus of the 57th ABU General Assembly and Associated Meetings, which for the first time in the history of the Union will be organised online as a virtual event.  Under the theme “Media in time of crisis: Creativity and Innovation for multiplatform” the virtual gathering will take stock of members’ actions, innovative approaches and creativity during this unprecedented crisis. The over twenty meetings and sessions, which, constitute the GA and Associated Meetings, will be conducted on a daily basis from 16th November to 17th December 2020. This will be the first opportunity for the ABU family to exchange experiences on how they dealt with the COVID 19 pandemic – from rearranging operations and working from home to launching educational broadcast channels.

The plan is to have one meeting a day starting at 1400hrs Kuala Lumpur time in order to allow colleagues from different time zones to join the sessions. The virtual meetings will be organised in three groups and those who register will receive separate links to join the meetings within each group. Please refer to the groupings below:

GROUP 1: ASSOCIATED MEETINGS (Open to all members)
In this group are all Committees Meetings such as Sports Group Conference, Programme Committee Meeting, Technical Committee Meeting, Women With the Wave Forum, Radio Working Party Meeting, Quality Management Workshop, including the ABU Prizes Awards Presentation and the ABU TV Song Festival.

GROUP 2:  GOVERNANCE MEETINGS (Restricted sessions, by invitation only)
This group includes the meetings of the governance bodies: Sports Financial and Broadcast Rights Meetings, Programme Bureau Meeting, Technical Bureau Meeting, Planning and Strategy Group Meeting, Admin Council Meeting and the GA Restricted Session. Since all these meetings are by invitation only, the colleagues who are eligible to attend will receive separate invitations.

GROUP 3: GA PLENARY SESSIONS (Open to all members)
This group includes the GA reporting plenary sessions on 15th December and the Super Panel Forum on 17th December.

The prestigious ABU Prizes Awards Ceremony and ABU TV Song Festival will also run as virtual events and will be streamed live. Further information on how to join these GA highlights will be available later.

The General Assembly sessions will be held on 15th, 16th and 17th December. Preceding the main event will be the annual meetings of the ABU Sports Group, Programme and Technical Committees, the Women With the Wave Forum, the Quality Management Workshop, and the sessions of the different governance bodies.

Registration is now open for these virtual events (click the register now button below to proceed). Please join the online reunion of the ABU family.
