Global Report Launch Event
20 May 2015

Launch of the 14th anual joint Arthur D. Little/Exane BNP Paribas Study in London

 

On May 19, 2015, Arthur D. Little held the launch of the latest edition of our Arthur D. Little / Exane BNP Paribas 14th annual Telecoms & Media Report with an unprecedented attendance of global senior industry executives and key investors, including more than ten leading UK operators, multiple web-majors and OTTs, infrastructure companies, several private equity firms and representatives of the vendor community and UK government advisory bodies.

This year’s edition of the report focuses the evolution of audio and video content delivery, and the relationships between major players in this ecosystem.  This was the most important shift in the strategic landscape during 2014, cited by more than half of the study respondents, and supported by our quantitative analysis.

The event commenced with a welcome by Richard Swinford, Head of the Telecoms & Media team of Arthur D. Little UK, on behalf of the global firm.  Subsequently, Bertrand Grau, lead author of the study, made an executive presentation of the key learnings from the report, on behalf of both companies.  This was followed by a supporting comparison of the UK market situation, and then a lively Q&A session with questions from the audience and attending journalists covering the launch, responded to by the presenters and Karim Taga, the Global TIME practice leader.
