ESCA and Home Media Confabs Co-locate2 May, 2008 By: Billy Gil
The Entertainment Supply Chain Academy (ESCA) and Home Media Magazine's upcoming TransFORMATions conference will co-locate June 17 at the InterContinental Hotel in Century City, Calif. TransFORMATions will take place June 16-17 and ESCA June 17-18.
“With this strategic alliance, we are setting the stage for increased collaboration in our industry and for an entirely new annual focal point on studio executive calendars,” said Thomas K. Arnold, publisher and editorial director of Home Media Magazine.
Home Media Magazine will co-sponsor an opening panel June 17 in the main ballroom at ESCA as well as host two other morning sessions. Meanwhile TransFORMATions will begin June 16 at the nearby Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel, and its paid registrants will gain full access to all morning sessions at the Intercontinental including ESCA keynotes and panel discussions, prior to, but not including, the luncheon on June 17.
“We welcome the management and marketing executives who traditionally frequent Home Media Magazine's conferences to join the operations, IT and supply chain executives who are the mainstay of the ESCA attendee base on June 17,” said Martin Porter, ESCA executive producer. “This way we will provide an even wider platform for industry information exchange and an even greater executive audience for our speakers and our sponsors.”
Both events are produced in cooperation with DEG: The Digital Entertainment Group, and each requires separate registrations. ESCA attendees who also wish to attend the June 16 portion of TransFORMATions will receive a $100 discount on that show's registration fee. More information can be found at www.dvdconferences.com.
