The Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles has been selected as the site of the 2nd annual OTT_X Market and Conference.
The Skirball, located in the Sepulveda Pass just off LA’s 405 Freeway, has been the home to EMA’s OTT_X Pipeline (formerly Digital Media Pipeline) for the past decade. It is located midway be LA’s West Side and the San Fernando Valley and is 15 miles away from both Burbank Airport and LAX.
The OTT_X Market and Conference will expand in 2020 to include two full days of conference sessions – packed with panels and the popular “Research Roundup”, as well as specialized tracks of breakouts and workgroups. A themed “show floor” will be added this year providing space for organizations interested in acquiring content (retailers/channels/platforms) to efficiently and effectively meet with those looking to license their content (studios/networks/aggregators) as well as technology and service providers. Private meeting rooms will be available as well.
Another new element will be the Partner Showcase – an opportunity for content providers and technology and service providers to present or demo their offerings to a dedicated and interested audience.
Of course, there will be plenty of networking opportunities at breakfast and lunch functions and at the Industry Cocktail Party on Tuesday night.
“This is the perfect venue to enable all aspects of OTT_X including business exchange, education, knowledge sharing, networking and advancing cross-industry initiatives ” said Mark Fisher, EMA’s President and CEO. “Both casual meetings and private meetings are comfortably accommodated, and the venue is ideal to host our main conference program, our breakouts, and our show floor.”
“The OTT_X conference is one of the premier digital events in our industry, offering invaluable resources to seasoned professionals and newcomers alike,” said Erick Opeka, President of Digital Networks at Cinedigm and the Conference Chair. “We are proud to provide attendees with even more insightful panels, group sessions, and networking opportunities than ever before, in addition to a special show floor and our acclaimed ‘Research Roundup’, among others. I look forward to seeing all of my colleagues once again, as we reconvene to learn, exchange ideas, and build upon the industry’s unprecedented success moving forward into the future.”
The Skirball will offer free Wi-Fi and free parking to all Market and Conference attendees.
EMA’s OTT_X Market and Conference is the definitive, diverse, private marketplace and conference for the OTT ecosystem including the world’s leading OTT channels, digital retailers and content and service providers.
