Sudeep Malhotra and Dinyar Contractor, Promoters  of the SCaT India Tradeshow and the Satellite & Cable TV magazine , are  convinced of the excellent synergy the three events derive and present, “India is the world’s 2nd largest CATV market with 197 million TV homes and over 120 Million Cable TV & DTH homes, and is growing at 6% per annum. The ScaT India Tradeshow covers an important sub-segment of the broadcast & broadband industry and by being integrated under the A.B.I.S. umbrella, the audience will have an opportunity to experience the latest in their respective sector and get a broader overview of the latest trends and innovations in the Industry at large.

With the Indian media market expected to reach USD 33.7 billion in 2020 and foreign investment in the sector at an all-time high, India is the place to be.

“The idea of A.B.I.S. took shape because of the interesting position the Indian broadcast and infotainment industry holds on the global forum. It will integrate the fragmented sectors within the broadcast, cable, satellite, content, broadband, media and infotainment industry onto a single platform, thus creating an exceptional proposition” said Sonia Prashar, Chairperson of the Management Board & Managing Director, NürnbergMesse India Pvt Ltd.
