Why should you attend?

  • The Paley Center’s International Council summits are dynamic, interactive events that are guaranteed to engage and inspire even the most jaded and jet-lagged conference goers.
  • Our summits are invite only and have a limited number of attendees.

What to expect?

  • Interactive discussions during summit sessions and the opportunity to participate throughout. 
  • Elegant social events at iconic locations that promise opportunities to network and chat with media luminaries and fellow delegates. 
  • Our theme for November will be “The Data Overthrow” and will focus on the new business, advertising, and distribution models in this age of unprecedented access to information about consumers and the way they interact with content. The increasing volume and detail of information, the rise of multimedia, social media, and mobile ubiquity will fuel this growth in data for the foreseeable future. How does it affect the creative process? How does data disrupt the media industry? What is the long-term impact? Join us as we examine, reconstruct, and reinvent in the age of big data.
