SVG Europe Nordic Summit 2018
In association with NCE Media/Media City Bergen

The venue for this event is the recently opened Media City Bergen complex in Norway, which has already made its mark as a leading international media cluster with Vizrt, Vimond, Mediability, Sixty, Highsoft, TV 2, NRK, Bergens Tidende, BA and the University of Bergen (Dept. of Information Science and Media Studies) among the key players.

In addition to housing some of the leading broadcast and media industry vendors, the site also plays host to a Media Innovation Lab and a startup lab, which together provide the core of the innovation and research projects for the cluster and its partners.

The SVG Europe Nordic Summit will include an extensive tour of the Media City Bergen site as well as a half-day seminar programme including sessions on the development of the site, the present and future of broadcast sports graphics, the possibilities heralded by remote production, and a keynote conversation with Eirik Solheim, Strategic Advisor of Norwegian broadcaster NRK.

Attendance to this summit will be primarily geared towards SVG Europe’s Platinum Sponsors, members of the Media Cluster and invited delegates based in the Nordics.
