No Longer Rocking the Casbaa: Earlier this year, the Cable and Satellite Broadcasting Association of Asia (CASBAA) noted that it would be changing its name and therefore the name of its annual convention. According to the association “as we broaden our scope and mission to encompass the broader video industry and ecosystem in Asia… Casbaa is very excited to introduce the launch of the Asia Video Summit. No longer the CASBAA Convention, the aim of the Summit is to become the defining conference on the State of the Video Industry in Asia: the opportunities and the challenges, the disruption and the consolidation, the success stories and the ability to embrace change.”

Lunchtime Learning: Last September, the Global Climate Action Summit brought together leaders from around the world to “Take Ambition to the Next Level.” Happening midway between Paris 2015 and 2020, the event was timed to provide the confidence to governments to ‘step up’ and trigger this next level of ambition sooner rather than later. Hear international and local leaders from states, regions, cities, businesses, investors and civil society as well as national government leaders, scientists, students, nonprofits and others share what they have achieved to date and what they are committed to doing in the future.
