THE POWER OF DIRECT AND DIGITAL

The 7th annual Digital Entertainment World (DEW) takes a deep dive into “The Power of Direct and Digital” – a theme that speaks to the massive shift underway in the media landscape as consumers are empowered by new technologies, platforms and devices that are enabling them to access media and entertainment content - video, games, music, comics and books - on their own terms - whenever and however they want.
