What We Do
The IABM provides a range of services to members including:
The IABM produce a variety of free and chargeable reports to help members track industry trends and the financial performance of the sector. Perhaps the most recognised piece of work in this area is our Global Market Study which segments and values the broadcast technology market. In addition, the IABM works with a number of research partners to ensure that other valuable research reports are made available to IABM members at competitive rates.
The IABM has a team of technical experts that monitor and report on standards and legislative activity. These regular updates are made available to IABM members through written reports as well as focused webinars, workshops and training courses. The IABM also offers members free technical advice and support on key issues.
Event Participation Services
The IABM lends their support to a number of key trade shows that members have identified as leaders in their particular market, through the Exhibitions Task Group. The IABM works with the event organisers of these shows to ensure that the focus and positioning of the events remain relevant to the developments taking place within the industry. The IABM also negotiate favourable discounts to ease some of the costs associated with members participating in these events.
The IABM organise a range of events including conferences, workshops, member days as well as a series of social events such as golf days and parties to facilitate networking among the various stakeholder groups that make up this industry.
IABM Training Academy
Development of the sector through its people and their skills is an important facet of IABM activity and is critical to the success of members’ businesses. As technology and working methods change there is a critical need for education and training to make sure that the industry has the engineering talent it needs for the future. The IABM is developing and expanding services in this area including the establishment of an IABM Training Academy and a programme of engagement between students, employers and relevant colleges and universities around the world.
The IABM Training Academy delivers training programmes for industry entrants, engineers and technical experts. Course programmes are delivered both in classrooms in different regions around the world and online. Whilst the training portfolio is modest we continue to add new courses to ensure that we deliver real solutions to the skills shortage within the broadcast manufacturing industry.
Work has started with universities, government agencies and schools to look into the problems of providing a suitably qualified workforce for the future.
The IABM currently provides a number of services to the industry to help build skills and knowledge around the world. These include:
- IABM Engineering Student Awards
- Tom McGann Training Award
- Technology Webinars
- The IABM Training Academy
