WebsEdge to provide Union TV in Cape Town – and an opportunity to promote your organisation

The International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease is partnering with the international film and broadcasting company, WebsEdge, to bring Union TV to The 46th Union World Conference on Lung Health, from December 2-6, 2015 in Cape Town, South Africa.

Union TV will be an onsite conference television channel featuring a new episode daily, screened around the convention centre, as well as in selected guest hotel rooms, online and via social media.

This venture serves to raise the visibility of the hard work of researchers, public health and clinical experts and policy makers in the fights against tuberculosis, HIV, lung disease and non-communicable diseases, and provides an opportunity to learn about the latest developments that are making a difference.

Each daily programme has two features: “Thought Leadership” and “Conference News.” Thought Leadership pieces are five-minute sponsored film segments highlighting programmes and initiatives in the field. Conference News is a daily programme of conference highlights, featuring “behind the scenes” interviews, coverage of conference events, and reactions to the day from delegates.

WebsEdge will be reaching out to organisations and institutes to describe the “Thought Leadership” program and seek their engagement in creating the five-minute documentary-style films highlighting particular aspects of their project work.

There are a limited number of places available for the five-minute films and, please note, there is a cost to participate. If you would like to explore having a film featured in the programme, please contact:
