Paley International Council

About Paley International Council Summit

Media is fundamentally the business of telling stories, from entertainment and news to advertising, social media and gaming. The rapid emergence of new technologies and platforms for producing and distributing content is changing the way we create, consume, and connect through storytelling on a global scale. IC2014 will explore this worldwide evolution in storytelling, including the evolving structure and platforms through which content is distributed; the importance of good narrative in advertising and how the readiness of mobile devices and interactively has turned the audience into the storytellers.

The Paley Center for Media's International Council (IC) is an independent forum dedicated to providing common ground for the global media industries. Created in 1995, the IC brings together the chief executives of the world's most important media companies to advance the exchange of ideas among these leaders in global media, entertainment, and technology, and to foster community among them. This is accomplished through both informal and organized discussions on a wide range of critical issues that will define the media and its role in society for generations to come. Past meetings have been held in Rome, Berlin, Madrid, Paris, London, Vienna, Beijing, Cape Town, Montréal, Istanbul, New Delhi, Bangalore, New York, Los Angeles, and California's Silicon Valley.
