Description

*£20 deposit will be refunded upon attendance*

Streaming is transforming music and TV business models, driving growth in both audiences and revenue. A balance between free and paid tiers and services has been key to this success. But growth is not always balanced, and as we approach maturity in many western markets, more may be needed of free, ad-supported options. Likewise, for unlocking longer term, larger scale growth in emerging markets.

We know these issues matter, but we also know it can be hard to plan for the next phase when there is so much activity and resource requirement been delivering by the current phase. To help media companies and streaming services alike, we have put together a curated insight event to provide the definitive evidence base for setting the balance between free and paid.

Join us for this free event, with exclusive, previously unseen MIDiA data presented by our Research Director Tim Mulligan and a panel of industry experts to tackle the burning questions. This event will help you understand:

• Just how big will streaming music and video advertising get?
• What is the right balance to strike between free and paid?
• How will this balance vary across different regions across the globe?
• How many more consumers will make the path from free to paid?
• Why are streaming audiences so interesting to advertisers and how can they reach them?
• What impact will the tech majors’ domination of global ad revenues have on streaming services?

Speakers confirmed so far:

Simeon Duckworth – Global head of strategy & analytics, Essence Global
Mike Quinn – Strategy Manager, UKTV

& More to be announced.
