How will the children’s media and content industries evolve during the next 5-10 years?  Can television retain its central role – or will it give way to tablets and mobiles, games and multimedia apps?  Which funding models will prosper and which will decline? What will it take to create a successful children’s content business in the future?  Are the opportunities really there for new entrants – or does the future belong to the international studio conglomerates?  What will look most different in 2020 – and beyond?

We invited a diverse panel of leading industry experts to help us explore the future of the children’s media and content industries.  Drawing on the latest industry data and research, we’ll paint a compelling picture of the children’s industry in 2020 – and provide some practical tips on how to survive and thrive in a complex, diverse, interconnected ecosystem.  Attendees will also receive a summary of the research.
