Keynote: Media War & Peace


The media and entertainment industry is one in continuous change. However, one thing that has been steadily ongoing in recent years, is the rise in layoffs and decline in work in media and tech businesses. The media industry is in emergency mode.

With his Media Universe Map, Evan Shapiro effectively illustrates the state of the media landscape whilst providing perspectives and insights into the latest market and tech trends.

Join us for the opening keynote at THIS CONFERENCE for the latest reports from the “war for our attention”. The session will take a deep dive into the creator economy across media industries to understand where we are, where we are going, and how to stay on top.

Shapiro will also speak at THIS SERIES where he will take a closer look at the Nordic TV and streaming landscape. There will also be a side event with Shapiro in which you will get the chance to discuss your own work and challenges with Shapiro in a one-on-one session (details to follow).
