Hollywood/Telco 2.0 Brainstorm, 5th May, Santa Monica, California

We’re delighted to announce a very special brainstorm we’re running with senior execs from the major Film and TV studios in Santa Monica, California, and co-located with the excellent Digital Hollywood event. Details of the invitees and the aims are below (see also this PDF). The brainstorm is ‘invitation-only’, but if you’d like to apply to participate, please email us here.

[Ed - For those based in Europe, we are running a slightly less-exclusive ‘Digital Entertainment 2.0’ Summit on 29th April in London, as part of the 9th Telco 2.0 Exec Brainstorm. We will be sharing new ‘use cases’ there too.]


The 1st International ‘Digital Entertainment 2.0’ Executive Brainstorm - New Telecoms-Enabled Business Models for a Multi-Screen, HD/3D, Mobile World - 5th May 2010, Shutters Hotel, Santa Monica, California, 8.30am-5pm.

Based around a set of new ‘use cases’, the aim of the brainstorm is to define a set of strategic opportunities for the entertainment industry to grow its business worldwide by leveraging telco assets in new ways. Specifically, how to…

  • Protect intellectual property
  • Engage directly with billions of consumers via the mobile channel
  • Increase the methods of monetisation for Film, TV and Gaming content

For Telcos, the aim is to define more creative ways to serve the global entertainment industry:

  • Generate new sources of revenue from the online content market
  • Improve the mobile user experience
  • Complement the Cable, Internet and Apple channels
The brainstorm uses Telco 2.0’s special interactive methods and tools and is by invitation-only for 60-80 senior representatives from the world’s leading film, TV, telco, advertising and technology companies.
