Description

The 11th ANNUAL E2 CONFERENCE

2018 has proven to be a defining year for entertainment industries worldwide, which have found themselves under the microscope on matters relating to inclusion and representation. While studios, agencies, and artists, are not shying away from the tough conversations, this year, 2019, we at E2 want to explore the economics of building an inclusive and international entertainment industry.

In this age of inclusion riders and tax credits , company-wide diversity protocols, and international markets as consumers, we believe that by furthering the conversation about inclusion to include the numbers, we can build a business case for representation in media.

Please join us along with speakers like Betsy Beers (Chief Content Officer, Shondaland), Susan Goldsmith (Senior Partner, Deloitte), Bela Bajaria (VP Content Acquisition, Netflix), Erik Barmack (VP International Originals, Netflix) and others from Lionsgate, Manatt Entertainment, PSB Research and Artist Partner Group for this year’s E2, Inclusion in the Industry, as we explore Why Entertainment Studios Should Care about Diversity.

For over a decade, the annual Evolution of Entertainment Conference has been the flagship event for the Business of Entertainment Association (BEA) at the USC Marshall School of Business.
