  • KBS will host this year’s annual conference of the Public Broadcasters International (PBI) from 23 to 25 October, 2018 in Seoul. Korea. This is the second time for KBS to bring the significant media event to Seoul since 2007 when KBS welcomed heads and executives of major public service broadcasters across the globe to share future strategies for public service broadcasting. For this year’s PBI gathering, the discussion will explore the ever-evolving media landscape dominantly driven by the so-called digital and mobile revolution. As summed up in the recently released conference catchphrase, Media’s Next Big Bang: Strategic Initiatives for Connected Platforms, the PBI Seoul 2018 will provide an opportunity to look at impacts of digitalized broadcasting services that connect audiences to a wider network of media experiences such as social media. Terrestrial UHD broadcasting service pioneered by KBS and the Korean Wave dramas will be on the table for further examination of their possibilities to lead such changes from the perspective of public service media. The steering committee for the PBI is planned to take place in Seoul in April, 2018 after which details of the PBI Seoul 2018 will be revealed.
