INVITATION

September 19th, 2012

Dear friends and colleagues,

 

It is our pleasure to invite you to the conference: Future of Azerbaijan Broadcast , which will take placeon September 20 , 09:30-14:00 at Park Inn Hotel in Baku. This event will definitely not be “yet another conference on the media”. It will offer a unique forum to debate around challenges and opportunities for broadcast diversity and pluralism. It will not only present an update of the current state of national broadcast, but also bring stimulating speeches from people who do not have entrenched ideas and people speaking who are capable of saying things that change views, such as to leaders from the traditional and digital media.

The conference is  funded by International Media Support (IMS) and is part of several press freedom initiatives implemented by Institute for Reporters’ Freedom and Safety, including OSCE Office in Baku-funded Change in the Air: Advancing Debate on Broadcast Diversity and Pluralism in Azerbaijanproject, EU-funded New Media Development and Regional Outreach Online project and IMS’s larger program to promote greater professionalism and independence in the Azerbaijani mediaand to better equip the Azerbaijani media to provide more diverse and in-depth information to the public.

 

The conference will be held at the Park Inn Hotel, Dan Ulduzu room , on Wednesday, September 20, 2012 from 09.30  through 13.15. The event will be followed by lunch.

 

 

We look forward to working with you on this important conference.

 

 

Cordially,

Emin Huseynov

Chairman/IRFS
