In an era of constant digital disruption the IIC enables the open balanced discussion that informs the policy agenda.

If our story over the last 50 years has anything to reveal, it’s the role IIC members around the world can play in shaping a future from which all of society can benefit. During 2019 we will be charting some of the significant changes that have taken place since our creation in 1969 and looking ahead to what the next decade will bring.

Evolution, innovation and regulation in telecoms, media and technology

To celebrate our anniversary, we have compiled more than 50 significant developments, launches, failures and trends that have taken place over the last five decades. Some of these are major trends, others lesser known but nonetheless impactful in the role they’ve played in shaping how we communicate, learn, govern and do business today.

Science fact or fiction? The birth of the IIC

In 1945 Arthur C. Clarke posited the idea that three geostationary satellites could transmit messages across the planet.

Widely dismissed as fanciful at the time, 23 years later, in 1968 the UN General Assembly approved the establishment of a working group to report on the technical feasibility of communication by direct broadcasts from satellites. Drawing on expertise from Europe, the USA and Asia and including academics, economists, government and industry, the group formed the beginnings of the International Broadcasting Institute (IBI), later to become the IIC.

Working with global organisations

In 1969 our board of directors, trustees and members comprised those at the forefront of the broadcast industry. In 2019 as our remit has widened and the telecoms media and technology sectors have converged, we still pride ourselves on having as strategic IIC Partners some of the major content platforms, telecoms operators and technology businesses. As well as regulators and policy makers from all continents.
