Dubai Lynx to launch Lynx Live
The 10th annual Dubai Lynx Festival, taking place between March 6 and March 9, 2016, will see the launch of Lynx Live – a new initiative that will bring live festival content to the world through TV.AE. A regional online content platform launching on March 1, 2016, TV.AE will broadcast one live seminar from each day of the festival. The daily session will be determined by a people’s vote, which will invite the industry to vote on the seminar that they most want to see. From January 31, 2016, voters will have two weeks to decide which sessions they want to watch from the Inspiration Stage, additionally, one session per day from the Arabic stage will be available to view post-event.
“Nearly 2,000 delegates experience Dubai Lynx every year but we know that there are many more who would like to be there but can’t,” says Emma Farmer, Festival Director, Dubai Lynx. “Together with TV.AE, we want to support the industry by giving a bit of the Festival back. We have a wealth of outstanding regional and international speakers, all delivering valuable insights on creativity and the industry. We want everyone to benefit and get inspired.”
Marwan Saab, General Manager, TV.AE, adds “We’re very excited about this partnership, one of the key reasons we’re launching TV.AE is to celebrate and support the incredible diversity and talent that exists in our region. The partnership with Dubai Lynx, the region’s premier creative festival, is a perfect match.”
