CREATIVITY AND INNOVATION IN A CHANGING WORLD

The 8th annual Digital Entertainment World (DEW) will explore “Creativity and Innovation in a Changing World” – a theme that resonates with every industry as we all adjust to massive shifts underway in the digital entertainment and media landscapes. While consumers have more choice than ever in new technologies, platforms and devices that enable them to access media and entertainment content on their own terms, companies and brands must find ways to stand out in a crowded and uncertain new world.
