Alternative Entertainment: New games to play

Saturday 5 March 2016
14:00 – 15:15
Room 3
Chair: Christoph Scholz, Semmel Concerts (DE)

A new format for our family show/exhibitions session this year sees a multitude of quick-fire presentations on the best alternative content available for touring. Split into four non-music categories, the spotlight falls on YouTube stars, sports, touring exhibitions, and theatre and family shows. Tired of demanding rock stars and slim margins? Looking for world-class productions ready to do business? Christoph Scholz leads a cast of producers and promoters in revealing the best alternative content currently on the market. It may not be rock ‘n’ roll, but we should really, really like it…

Panellists:
David Bigger, WWE (US)
Tom Burns, Summer in the City (UK)
Corrado Canonici, World Concert Artists (UK)
Meriç Dündar, Istanbul Entertainment Group (TR)
