(October 12 to October 15, Warsaw)
Keeping AV for the future and using it to create value is the everyday challenge of any content holder. However it a dynamic activity, where methods, objectives and concepts change regularly and new strategies have to be adapted by the AV archives to achieve their mission and grow that value in the digital media world of the 21st Century.
The FIAT/IFTA World Conference 2016 presents a strong forum & unique network in which to debate, learn and rethink these strategies and re imagine the future of AV.
