The FOCUS Summit

Our aim with FOCUS is to provide both an accessible exhibit where attendees can meet production companies from around the world, and an event dedicated to producers, senior production executives and creatives from all the screen industries. This is where the FOCUS Summit comes in. Taking place on December 15th, the Summit will feature talks and discussions from some of the industry’s key figures, as they weigh in on current issues such as where the industry is headed, and how to succeed in a changing landscape.

Discussion topics will include:

  • The audience – A look at how to connect with an ever evolving audience, particularly those who are labelled as ‘second screeners’ and consume content in an entirely unique way.
  • Merging sectors – As the industry develops the lines between the various sectors have begun to blur, leading to interesting results and new collaborations.
  • Diversity – There is too little change to those who represent the industry in an environment that demands new faces and new ideas.
  • Reputation of places – the impact of social media and the creative industries on our perception of a place.

Early bird tickets are available (until November 30th) for the FOCUS Summit for £272.00, and any tickets bought on the door are priced at £400.00. Entry to the FOCUS Summit is free to companies operating a stand at the exhibit.
