The Entertainment Merchants Association has announced that the 2016 Los Angeles Entertainment Summit will be held at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel & Suites in downtown Los Angeles.
LAES, now in its fifth year, is the premiere forum for motion picture studios, video game publishers, retailers, distributors and other ancillary companies and service providers to engage in business conversations, information sharing, relationship building and socializing.
The 2016 LAES will run July 18-20, consisting of business-to-business meetings between home entertainment and video game content producers and retailers. In addition, the Summit will include the Knowledge Exchange and the Tech Tour, which provide industry insights and home entertainment product demonstrations. LAES networking opportunities include a golf tournament, the industry cocktail party and the studio lot party, to be held this year at Paramount. Proceeds benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
Last year, more than 1,000 industry leaders and 150 companies participated in the LAES. For information and event schedules, visit www.entmerch.org/LAES.
