Executive Leadership Summit

Today's Leaders. Tomorrow's Ideas.

The Second Annual NAB Show Executive Leadership Summit — set to return to the Encore at Wynn Las Vegas on Sunday, April 7, 2019 — is an exclusive, invite-only event bringing together key voices and leaders from today’s top media, entertainment, technology and advertising organizations for an afternoon of critical dialogue, future-forward conversations and intimate networking.

In collaboration with Event Co-Chairs Sarah Baehr (Horizon Media), Jon Feltheimer (Lionsgate), Lachlan Murdoch (Fox Corporation), Susan Schiekofer (GroupM U.S.) and Tony Vinciquerra (Sony Pictures Entertainment), the summit will feature panels populated by senior dealmakers, bankers, ad buyers and content producers. Shelly Palmer, CEO of the Palmer Group, will serve as program emcee.

Tackling many of the pressing issues confronting a business upended by profound — and nearly constant — change, 2019’s gathering will include deep dives on the direction of M&A activity; the sustainability of the current advertising model; the future of content creation in the age of OTT platforms; and the coming technological changes and opportunities in store with the transition to Next Gen TV, among others.

Additionally, Charlie Collier, CEO, FOX Entertainment, has been tapped for the opening keynote spotlight conversation. Collier will share his thoughts on the future of the television business and the vision he has for FOX Entertainment.

Where is the Money Going?

Sunday, April 7 | 3:15 pm - 4:15 pm | Chopin Ballroom- Encore

What does the mega-merger frenzy spurred by streaming, and most recent media M&A moves, mean for the next year and five years down the road? Do the business models of the giant streamers Netflix, Amazon and Hulu indicate growth or decline in the coming years? Is the current advertising model sustainable and if not what changes in sales, measurement and tech are needed to save it? DTC, OTT, ATSC 3.0, SVOD – what acronyms and trends are those controlling the purse strings paying the most attention to and why?
