Registration for the 2018 Category Showcase & Innovation Forum is now open, according to event organisers the British Association for Screen Entertainment and the Entertainment Retailers Association.
Taking place at Picturehouse Central on July 4 from 8:30am – 2:00pm, the Category Showcase will highlight the best and most anticipated feature film, children’s and TV content ahead of Q4 and beyond.
“As with previous years, the showcase has been timed to take full advantage of CineEurope, with the film expo providing the perfect launch pad for previously unseen and exclusive content,” BASE said.
“With some incredible titles already confirmed and conversations with members continuing apace, we can confidently promise an exciting and informative look at the very lifeblood of the industry. Watch this space also for an impending announcement about this year’s host.
“Attendees on the day will also be encouraged to approach the topic of retail innovation as the showcase segues into the Innovation Forum. This element of the event seeks to inform with insight and forward-thought from both within and outside the category. The forum is intended as both a tacit acknowledgement that the retail landscape continues to change at pace and a wholehearted endorsement of the kind of innovative thought either already being championed within the category or being primed for embrace in the future.”
BASE said speakers for the Innovation Forum will be announced over the coming weeks but, just as with the Category Showcase, it is encouraging anyone with content or contributor ideas to get in contact.
