Transforming Home Entertainment Summit 2017

3rd Annual Transforming Home Entertainment Summit

London, 13th September 2017

Delivering an Enhanced Experience at Home and On the Move

Transformation is an ongoing process in the entertainment sector, with new products and technologies, innovative business initiatives and enhanced ‘behind the scenes’ approaches all combining to create dynamism and meet the ever changing consumer wants and needs.

In this the third annual Transforming Home Entertainment Summit, the focus will once again be on providing a forum for information sharing and gaining insights into the way the industry is both managing and responding to the revolution and evolution that is unfolding in this sector.

From an end consumer perspective, the transformation means a better quality and an enhanced, fully immersive entertainment experience. It also means improved choice, more engagement and greater flexibility.
