Event Details

Now in its sixth year, The Futures of Entertainment conference brings together professionals from academia, marketing and media. Here, they discuss how communication between media, brands and audiences is changing, and how the nature of storytelling is shifting in a digital era.

The event tackles the ethics of social media, the future of media metrics and measurement, and the challenges of building transmedia storytelling.  It explores changing relations between companies and their audiences, and the rapidly shifting nature of engagement online and off.

Hosted by the MIT Program in Comparative Media Studies, the conference features thought leaders who are shaping the direction of digital media. FoE 6 will draw more than 200 of the top academic and industry thinkers for this two-day exclusive event.

This year’s event continues this tradition.
