revolution at MIPCOM
01st October 2010
Given the development of smartphones and online tablet devices, MIPCOM is bringing together key players from the New Publishing sector for a half-day seminar on 6 October at the Palais des Festivals in Cannes.
The seminar will kick off with a special iPad showcase session during which a range of new Apps will be presented, from brand-dedicated Apps to those targeting children. Daniel Efergan, Creative Director of Aardman Digital, part of Aardman Animations, and Patrice Slupowski, VP Digital Innovation and Communities at Orange, will speak on the subject, while a broadcaster's point of view will be delivered by Jen Topping, New Media Commissioning Manager for Channel 4.
This will be followed by a series of case studies: Anna Rafferty, MD of Digital Publishing at Penguin Books, will explain how a leading book publisher is adopting mobile applications and is adapting to multimedia ePublishing; Shaun Barriball, Founder and CEO of Mobile IQ, will talk about being an App creator; Dan Witters, UK Managing Director of Kiwa Media, will describe the new licensing deals; and Cedric Thomas from the Ovi by Nokia App store will speak for online App sellers.
The seminar will be chaired by Ferhan Cook, Publisher of MobiADNews and President of Any Screen Productions Ltd.
"Convergence is finally here. The new tablet devices and the App stores complete the full circle on rich media publishing, with a clear business model for content. A brand new 'connected publishing' industry is being born," explains Ferhan Cook.
"We are in the midst of a new publishing revolution which is impacting the entire spectrum of the entertainment industry," adds Laurine Garaude, Director of MIPCOM. "We are very pleased to be holding this important seminar at MIPCOM and plan to develop this further in the future."
A SuperPanel conference on the future of the App business will conclude the event, with Disney Media Distribution, Sky News and Vodaphone Content Services, among the key participants, followed by a Networking event and cocktail
