As the six-day IBC2012 closed on September 11, the organizers reported the number of attendees – conference delegates, exhibition visitors and exhibitors – was 50,937. This compares with the record year 2011 which had 50,462 attendees, showing a year-on-year growth in 2012 of 0.93 percent.
“From the calibre of visitors and delegates we attract to the whole experience we provide, IBC is all about quality,” said Michael Crimp, IBC’s CEO as the 2012 event drew to a close on Tuesday 11 September. “That we have drawn a record audience at a time when there are still economic challenges in many parts of the world – and when broadcasters are dealing with massive events like the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympic Games and U.S. presidential elections – clearly shows that, above all, IBC is relevant to people at every level in our industry.”
