Content India Show’s We Go Digital Edition has been created with the aim of connecting content creators with the leading broadcasters and digital platforms enabling them to promote and distribute their catalogue and ideas in one of the largest, and most lucrative, entertainment markets of the world.
The event will be held under the parent umbrella of A.B.I.S.- ASIA’s BROADCASTING & INFOTAINMENT SHOW with two other co-located events BROADCAST INDIA SHOW ( India’s leading event for Broadcast, FILM, TV, Radio Technology) and SCAT INDIA TRADESHOW ( Leading Exhibition for Cable TV, Broadband, IPTV & Satellite Industry ), providing three days of seamless networking experience and will then transition into a yearlong active online networking platform.
Earlier this year, NürnbergMesse expanded its international portfolio by acquiring the Indian exhibition SCaT India.

In 2016, it acquired Broadcast India Show, India’s leading trade fair for production and post-production in TV and film technology.
