1st Hollywood-Telco Industry-to-Industry Exec Brainstorm

We're delighted to report a superb list of participants for the 1st Hollywood-Telco industry-to-industry Executive Brainstorm, taking place on 5 May in Santa Monica (described before here) - see below. It's an exclusive intensive brainstorm to look at new, global commercial models for collaboration between these industries.

There's now an understanding from the major film, tv, advertising and gaming companies that they need help in protecting, distributing and monetising their product and that the telecoms industry has assets that could help them with this. In return, the telecoms industry is seeing that there's an opportunity to open up a new 'upstream' market for them, rather than merely re-selling content.

It's not often you get such a group from across the whole value chain in a room in such a way for such an important topic. There are a few places left, email us for details on costs and availability.
