Gravity Summit will bring together Hollywood, Sports, and Social Media to discuss the transformation of television, branding, movies, entertainment, games and sports. 

Why should you attend?

This Gravity Summit event will bring together an unprecedented agenda of sports & entertianment leaders and insiders to address social media marketing trends, innovations, tools and strategies now and in the future. In the 4 years we've been producing events, this will be the best yet!

More and more studios, broadcasters, sports teams, and media outlets are adopting social media.  Actors, musicians, and sports figures are beginning to manage their own social presence.  What does this mean to the current ecosystem?  How important is audience engagement in attracting and retaining fans?  What’s the role of the agent, manager, brand, and broadcaster?  We  bring together in one room, for a full day, the media, technology, sports and entertainment companies and influencers who are re-shaping the consumer experience.

Is 2012 the year of Social TV?  Will social media in sports & entertainment be able to demonstrate ROI?  What about social search, fantasy sports and social media, social gaming?  This is the conference that will help you get a jump on the market and your competitors as we all move into the “anytime, anywhere” entertainment universe.

Here's what you'll get:

  • Top speakers from Hollywood, Sports, Social Media, Games, Mobile, Agencies, and Fortune 500 Brands
  • Lively discussion of the topics you'll be talking about in 2012: Social TV, Audience Engagement, Community Management, Managing the social ecosystem, brand integration, and much more.
  • Unmatched access to industry influencers
  • Peer networking at the luncheon
  • VIP AferParty at the famous Roxy on Sunset so you can keep the conversation going and follow up in real-time
