En route to the Discoverability Summit: Content in the Age of Abundance

Chan Centre for Performing Arts, Vancouver, BC

The CRTC has announced plans to hold two events leading up to its Discoverability Summit next May.

In collaboration with the National Film Board of Canada (NFB), the Commission will host the first event in Vancouver on December 1st at The Chan Centre for Performing Arts from 9:00 AM to 12:30 PM. "En route to the Discoverability Summit: Content in the Age of Abundance" will be moderated by CBC Radio Spark host and creator Nora Young, and feature Tony Chapman, founder and CEO of Tony Chapman Reactions, as the keynote speaker.

Discussions will focus on English-language markets, the CRTC confirmed Tuesday.  Attendance will be by invitation due to the limited number of seats, but will be live streamed on the CRTC’s YouTube channel.

A second 'En route' event, focusing on French-language markets, will take place in Montreal.  Details for this event will be released shortly.
