Flying, driving or train-ing to IBC this year? Flying

What is your goal for this year’s IBC show?

Market, sell and interest partners and investors

What will be the big tech trends at this year’s IBC?

VR will be a strong theme. Also I also think the amount of companies simplifying OTT service creation and delivery will make OTT a hot topic.

What piece of gear/software/platform do you wish someone would make?

VR glasses that tell you who’s a client, who’s a competitor and who’s a waste of space when they approach your stand at IBC.

What’s your fondest IBC/Amsterdam memory?

Trying to do an early morning charity run whilst hungover from a wonderful Amsterdam canal trip & party the night before.

Can you speak Dutch?

Sadly, no.
