2016 theme: Agile Mediascapes – Personalising the Future

The emergence of new technologies, global hyperconnectivity and the mushrooming of on-demand services means that an abundance of audiovisual content is available through diverse media around the clock. The growing wave of content is being shared and distributed via more channels than ever before and it is reaching wider, more diverse audiences.
We are witnessing an ever-increasing demand for a personalised user experience, and for this wealth of information be made accessible to speakers of different languages and consumers with visual or hearing impairments.
How can the industry keep pace and benefit from this surge in demand? Join international experts at Languages & The Media 2016 to discuss how to survive and thrive in today’s dynamic mediascape.
