DVB DRINKS (not) at IBC2020


For the first time in more than two decades, the DVB community will not have an opportunity to gather on our booth in Amsterdam and catch up on the latest developments over drinks and snacks. Some traditions, however, are too important to give up on!

Friday 11 September, 17:00–19:00 CEST

We’re pleased to present this event with the support of LIVE!, powered by Dundee Hills Group.

You are warmly invited to join us for a drink on what would have been the opening day of IBC2020. You will need to bring your own refreshments this time, but otherwise you can find the same friendly faces and the same engaging conversation.

Both DVB Members and non-members are welcome!

Registration is free, easy and mandatory. You will receive a link via email to access the online party once your registration has been approved.

  • Edit your name so that your company appears in brackets: “John Smith (Acme Media)”
  • Sit somewhere comfortable
  • Upload a virtual background
  • Bring your drink of choice!

And if you’re still wondering how it will all work, take a look at this handy Quick Start guide (PDF).
