Lucian Grainge CBE will be amongst the guests of the the two-day Technology Innovators Forum (TIF-IN) to Los Angeles next week (April 28 & 29), where attendees will include some of the most prominent leaders in Hollywood and promising start-ups from the US and UK.
The British exec will attend the event alongside Lord Marland, along with reps from UK Trade & Investment, Universal Music Group, Founders Forum, BBC Worldwide and the BBC.
The two-day forum, designed to help promote trade with the UK’s most innovative technology and media companies, is scheduled to be held at several locations in Los Angeles, with panels and sessions planned at Quixote Studios in West Hollywood.
The event’s co-hosts are Peter Chernin, Chairman and CEO of The Chernin Group, a producer of movies and television series, and an investor in prominent technology companies, Ari Emanuel, co-CEO of William Morris Endeavor Entertainment and Jason Kilar, co-founder and CEO of premium video service Vessel.
The conference plans to explore how music, television, film, live events and innovative services are influencing, as well as being influenced by, new digital platforms that give consumers more control over how they enjoy their favorite entertainment.
Industry leaders from the music, film, television, digital and video games industries will be in attendance.
TIF-IN’s inaugural conference took place in 2013 in Los Angeles. Since then, forums have been held in London and Qingdao, China.
Together, the three TIF-IN forums have drawn 700 attendees, featured 80 innovative companies and resulted in $200 million in deals.
