Tuesday, April 12, 2011 at 6:00 PM (PDT)
WE ARE NOW IN LAS VEGAS. CALL OUR CELL WITH QUESTIONS
The Future of Television: Technologies That Will Transform TV by 2020
6:00-7:00 Buffet Networking Dinner and Demo Tables
7:00-8:00 Panel Discussion
8:00-10:30 Networking Party with Drinks and Demo Tables
Everyone with party only tickets will be admitted after 8:00 only.
The business, content and technology of television are changing more rapidly than at any time since the medium went mass market in the mid-20th century. The Internet, 3D, mobile platforms, interactivity and plummeting costs for advanced technology have turned old presumptions upside down: Netflix has turned broadband into a new TV distribution medium; Time Warner is distributing 32 channels of TV on iPads; 3D is being heavily promoted as a new standard; Google wants to become the gatekeeper for TV program navigation (and advertising); and Apple, fresh from its video successes on the iPhone, may well be designing your next TV.
No one knows exactly what TV and programming will look like in 2020. But we're bringing in some top executives to give you some educated guesses -- and how that will change your job description.
Network ahead of time at an exclusive dinner and stay for a party with more than 800 of your closest friends in the TV business (see our list of who's coming below!) (
Attendees MUST purchase a dinner ticket to see the panel and meet the speakers. Party only tickets will be admitted after 8pm.
