Media and Entertainment

New York - Jan 19, 2012

A conversation regarding media & entertainment would be void without mention of New York City, which generates everything from cutting edge mobile applications to some of the longest standing news sources in the world. An epicenter for television, radio, print, the internet, and the arts, New York City is one of the largest media markets in North America. With continued innovation in content delivery vehicles and myriad choices for consumers, how are companies gaining an edge? How do more traditional media vehicles piece in to this complex puzzle? What proactive or reactionary moves are companies making with the increasingly present voice of their audience and consumers?

Join a discussion in New York City with Chicago Booth alumni and media & entertainment professionals who will share their perspective on the current conditions and their views on the future.
