HITS LA Fall 2017 Conference

18 Oct 2017


“Innovating the Next Consumer Experience” is the Theme for IT Community’s Bi-annual Conference”

The Hollywood Innovation & Technology Summit

The Hollywood IT community will gather again on October 18 at the Skirball Center in Los Angeles for its bi-annual Summit, providing 500+ studio leaders and their technology partners with a progress report on the new tools, trends, and technologies that are changing the way the consumer engages with and experiences entertainment. Under the direction of the CIOs of every leading studio, this year’s HITS Fall program will once again help accelerate the industry’s digital transformation.

“Entertainment is going direct-to-consumer and, as such, the opportunities to personalize the experience and build a one-on-one relationship with viewers has never been so attainable,” says Conference Chair Devendra Mishra.  “HITS Fall will share best practices and successful case studies to show how new technologies and innovative business approaches are changing the way the world is entertained everywhere.”

HITS Fall’s first keynote speaker is Annie Jacobsen, Pulitzer-Prize finalist and author who will explore “Disruptive Technology: Taking a Page Out of the Pentagon’s Playbook.” Jacobsen will provide a cautionary tale about how DARPA, the world’s most powerful & potent research agency, has transformed the world, from the Internet to GPS to human cyborgs, only once being outperformed by biology.

Also on the keynote stage is Val Wright, an internationally recognized global leadership, innovation expert, and growth accelerator whose book “Thoughtfully Ruthless®: The Key to Exponential Growth,” explores the pivotal role innovation plays in catapulting ahead of the competition.

Once again, hundreds of women executives will be joining the event to attend the co-located SoCal Women’s Leadership Group meeting, which is being produced jointly by Women in Technology Hollywood (WiTH) and the Women in Cable Telecommunications (WICT) with the support of Women@Disney, Women of Fox Sports, Women’s Network@NBC Universal, Women of Warner (WOW) and Sony Pictures’ Women in Technology (WiT) and Women of Action Vision & Empowerment (WAVE).
