IBC 2019: CenturyLink signs up as sponsor of SVG Europe Women networking event at IBC
CenturyLink is sponsoring the SVG Europe Women networking event at IBC, which is being held in the 1st Floor Restaurant at the Rai on Saturday 14 September from 4.30pm.
With 220 people already registered, the event is set to be a relaxed break from the show floor where women – and men – can get together over a drink to contemplate women in sports broadcasting, the themes of the show, to their next career move.
“We’re delighted to be sponsoring the SVG’s Women’s networking drinks at this year’s IBC,” said Laurinda Pang, president, international and global account management at CenturyLink.
“Diversity is hugely important to us at CenturyLink so helping to support programmes like the SVG Women’s Initiative, which aims to build awareness and give practical help within the sports production and distribution community, is key. We’re looking forward to meeting lots of professionals from different backgrounds at the event on Saturday 14th,” Pang concluded.
At the event guests will be welcomed and will hear a brief update on SVG Europe Women from internal head of the initiative and SVG Europe editor, Heather McLean, as well as from CenturyLink’s Pang, and finally from external head of SVG Europe Women, Lise Cosimi.
The event will merge at 6pm into the SVG Europe Sport Production Summit networking drinks, and guests are welcome to stay until the bar closes at 8pm.
