Multiplatform Conference Set for 2009

It may be a year away, but that isn’t stopping Hannover Fairs USA from announcing its latest event, the Multichannel Content Distribution Conference.

The conference and exposition, focusing on the delivery of digital content across all technology platforms, will be held Feb. 4-5, 2009, at the Universal City Hilton in Los Angeles.

The event provides an opportunity for key players in the content creation and distribution communities to discuss the status of the business, said Art Paredes, president and CEO of HFUSA. “Terrestrial broadcasters, satellite and cable operators, wireless network providers and the leaders of Silicon Valley will meet face-to-face under one roof with top officials from the Hollywood content community,” he said.

Paredes also said the conference will focus on international content distribution, and it is partnering with the company’s flagship event, CeBIT.

The project manager for the conference will be Harry Thibedeau, a 20-year satellite/telecommunications industry veteran who recently joined the HFUSA team.
