With IBC returning to Amsterdam's RAI this September for the first time in three years, organisers are giving an upbeat message to the media tech industry.

IBC head of sales Steve Connolly told journalists the number of exhibitors at this year's event is currently sitting at 850 but that number could potentially reach 1,000 by September. We've seen a crazy amount of demand over the last six months, he said. We've surpassed our initial expectations and are thrilled with the levels of enthusiasm and engagement among exhibitors and visitors for this year's show.

However, Connolly also noted that attendance figures are more difficult to estimate. In terms of in-person attendance, it's harder to predict, especially when you look at other trade shows at the beginning of the year and how much of their final registration comes through in the last three weeks, he added.

However, to give you some kind of guideline and mathematical formula, when we had 55,000 square metres of space, we had 53,000 visitors. I would expect our final square metres [of exhibit space] to be around about 35-36,000 square meters, so following that trend, you can expect some numbers around that.

Regarding Covid protections, IBC CEO Michael Crimp said the show will follow current EU Covid protocols, which are minimal at this point. He added that IBC will monitor safety protocols and will change them if needed. If medical advice is to do differently, we will introduce them so you can imagine we've got a Plan B' and Plan C' in place, he said.

Show agenda IBC 2022 will focus on the current and future trends that have emerged since the 2019 show-many of which were accelerated by pandemic.

The conference takes place on September 9th and 10th and is aiming to bring brings together some of the industry's most influential thought leaders to present keynotes, panel discussions and IBC Technical Papers, It is centred on the theme What's next? Designing the future together,' and will explore core trends and technologies shaping the future of media, including metaverse, data-driven ad strategies, hybrid business models and cloud migration. Confirmed headline speakers include:

Eddie Drake, head of Ttchnology at Marvel Studios

Anthony Guarino, executive vice president, Worldwide Technical Operations at Paramount Global

Renard Jenkins, senior vice president, Production Integration and Creative Technology Services at Warner Bros. Discovery

Michael Wise, SVP and chief technology officer at Universal Pictures

Raymundo Barros, CTO at Globo

Archana Anand, chief business officer at ZEE5 Global

New this year is the free IBC Changemaker sessions, hosted by IBC's Partners' Programme, which which bring together industry trailblazers such as RISE, albert, MovieLabs, HBS, Soho Media Club to explore topics such as raising equality, advancing sustainability and mental health awareness-as well as the latest thinking in creativity and technology.
