Is bigger better in the entertainment industry? Scale matters in the quest to profit in expanding overseas markets and compete with the giants created by mergers among media and entertainment providers. This session will bring together senior industry leaders to address a range of questions on the effects of megamergers and intensifying global competition.

  • How will new competition in new markets, both domestic and abroad, realign the landscape and affect the prominence of Hollywood?
  • Will overseas markets influence the nature of the content produced domestically? Could it lead to greater diversity of stories and narratives?
  • How stable are the new revenue streams generated by new technologies? How do companies and individuals invest in new products and creative people in this environment?
