The one-day conference will feature leading executives involved in the marketing, advertising, research, distribution, content acquisition, executive search, production of broadcast, pay television and video for OTT.
The summit’s producer, Joe Schramm said, “We will be talking about the unique factors that drive revenues and attract multicultural viewers and subscribers to TV and OTT.” Schramm added that topics will include the effect of the current political attitudes on individual audience segments; increasing subscriptions of pay content among targeted audiences, data by segment, and reaching more consumers through targeted video advertising. He also mentioned that diversifying the executive team, as well as ensuring ethnic and gender balance in the cast for new productions will also be a focus of the summit.
