Co-chaired by Frank A. Bennack, Jr. and Henry A. Kissinger, the distinguished Paley International Council is an invitation-only membership community comprised of the world’s most important entertainment, media, and technology executives. The Council provides advice and guidance on the Paley Center’s global programs and initiatives, including the renowned Paley International Council Summit.
Paley International Council Summit, often referred to as the “Davos of Media,” brings together global leaders and CEOs of the world’s most important media companies, to advance the exchange of ideas and to foster a sense of community. The Summit was first held in 1995 in Italy, and over the years, has been held in China, South Africa, Germany, Austria, India, Monaco, Spain, France, Turkey, Mexico, and the United Kingdom.
