Organizers plan a second Middle East Broadcasters Association Conference and Expo for December. It will be held in Beirut, Lebanon.
The organization said it attracted 3,000 broadcasters from 25 countries to its first event. It described the Middle East as "the fastest-growing broadcasting industry in the world," with an average of three new TV stations going live every month.
"Due to the convergence of a number of political and economic factors, as well as the growth of satellite television in the region, governments in the Middle East began relaxing ownership regulations just over a decade ago," it stated. "The region that once had only one or two stations (all state-run) per country is now home to well over 200 television stations and more than 170 radio stations."
