In September each year, IBC brings together all technology providers to find out about the latest trends, business ideas and technology solutions.
IBC takes place at Amsterdam's largest conference centre: Amsterdam RAI. The renowned event welcomes about 70,000 television professionals, managers, and video and digital film specialists annually.
Why in Amsterdam? The first IBC was held in 1967 in London, where just 32 exhibitors and 500 conference delegates had attended. Back then, broadcasting was a rather different business. Through the years, the IBC grew and eventually, in 1990, there was not enough space in London for exhibition and meeting space, as well as a shortage of accommodation.
In July 1992, IBC moved from the UK to the Netherlands. With very specific demands of the IBC organisation, convention centre Amsterdam RAI was chosen. From 1994, IBC became an annual event, and it has remained in Amsterdam ever since.
Need a comfortable, homely and spacious place to stay during IBC week? Close enough to the city centre for convenience by means of public transport (and no more than 30 minutes to Amsterdam RAI), Yays Concierged Boutique Apartments are located in historical buildings, restored with respect for the neighbourhoods and hosted by local concierges from the Amsterdam area. Book your accommodation for this year at one of the unique Yays Amsterdam locations, through the button below.
