|We asked delegates for feedback last year on a range of things, from being in a new venue, to whether it was preferable to hold the Convention in August or October.
We heard you. Everyone prefers watching films in a cinema. Most voted for October. You want speakers up-to-date with worldwide industry trends. And, in October, people don’t want to be away from their offices/cinemas for too long.
Given recent changes in the distribution landscape, there are two distributor slots that won’t need to be accommodated this year.
So – we think we can provide a full, engaging program, plus some quality screenings and good networking opportunities, streamlined within the following framework:
Sun, Oct 20 Golf / Welcome Function/Film Premiere or screening
Mon, Oct 21 Opening Address / Distributor Presentations / Film Screening(s) / Networking opportunity
Tue, Oct 22 Distributor Presentations / Keynote Speaker / Screening / Gala Dinner
Wed, Oct 23 Trade Presentations / Screenings
That framework gives us the opportunity to pass on cost savings to delegates as well, including saving one night’s accommodation.
Click here to see the draft program – we’ll stay with these timings unless we need to make a change to accommodate a really worthwhile opportunity. As specifics become available, we will update this program.
