IABM Gold Membership

IABM Gold membership is the natural choice of companies that require the broadest range and depth of off-the-shelf services from IABM beyond those available at Silver level. Gold members are often – but not exclusively – larger organizations with a number of brands and/or subsidiaries that all require access to the full range of IABM benefits.

IABM Platinum Member Logo

The top level of IABM membership, Platinum is the choice of leading companies in Broadcast and Media technology that want to take advantage of extensive individualized services and consultations supplied by IABM specialists to support their unique business objectives. Every Platinum membership package is thus individually tailored. In addition, Platinum members also have access to the comprehensive range of IABM services that all members benefit from.

IABM Start Up Membership Logo

Start-Up membership is specifically designed for companies that have been incorporated for less than two years to support them at a critical time in their growth and development at a manageable price for what are typically cash-poor, ideas-rich businesses. Start-Up members receive all the benefits of a Silver level member at a reduced rate.

IABM Bronze Membership logo

Bronze membership is tailored for those companies that do not supply products or services directly to end-users but exist in the broadcast and media technology ecosystem – providing support and services to those that in turn supply the end user. Bronze membership recognizes the contribution these companies bring to the industry and also provides a range of opportunities to interact and network with other members.
