Nov 7, 2015

We caught up with Jean Abergel, Andrea Ferraz, Emmet Kelly and Francois Meunier ahead of Morgan Stanley's Tech, Media and Telecom conference in Barcelona for their insights on the latest industry trends.

More than 150 public and private companies and nearly 900 investors gather in Barcelona, Spain—from Nov. 11-13, 2015—to discuss the latest developments, trends and outlook for the technology, media and telecommunications sectors.

We caught up with Investment Banker, Jean Abergel, to get his insights on the M&A outlook for the media and telecom sectors in 2016. Separately, we asked members of our TMT Research team, Francois Meunier, Emmet Kelly, and Andrea Ferraz, before the conference for their views on some of the crucial questions for the industry: Is innovation slowing down? Can European start-ups compete on a global stage? What strategies are telecoms pursuing for content?
