3D Entertainment Summit Announces Variety and ETC @ USC as Partners

The 3D Entertainment Summit Co-produced by Bob Dowling and Unicomm LLC has established a joint venture agreement with Variety (a Reed Business Information publication). Variety will provide significant industry outreach, marketing and sales support, content development for the event and will also produce a special editorial feature focusing on 3D entertainment.
 
Under this agreement, which includes both Variety and its sister-publication, Video Business, the Summit will be known as “The 3D Entertainment Summit in association with Variety.”
 
Scheduled for September 16-17, 2009, in Los Angeles, The Summit will feature dynamic panel discussions, exhibits and multiple keynote addresses on both days.

“With an unprecedented group of 3D opinion leaders -- the second annual Summit will build upon the tremendous success of the inagural event and will map out for attendees how to capitalize on 3D irrespective of what discipline in entertainment they currently hold”, said Bob Dowling.  “3D is the most exciting entertainment development since color and industry stakeholders are clamouring to find out what’s in it for them.”
 
“We are delighted with the prospects of this new partnership with the 3D Entertainment Summit,” stated Brian Gott, Publisher of Variety.  “Aligning the assets of Variety and Video Business with Bob Dowling and Unicomm will help to ensure that this premier event continues to be the meeting place of the 3D industry.”

The 3D Entertainment Summit in association with Variety also announced that the Entertainment Technology Center at USC (ETC@USC) will serve as its Presenting Partner. ETC@USC will work with Bob Dowling on the conference content and will provide outreach to its leading edge industry constituents. The Entertainment Technology Center at USC is an organization within the USC School of Cinematic Arts and was founded with the help of George Lucas in 1993, with the goal of bringing technology and entertainment visionaries together to collaborate on the future of entertainment technology.

"A key focus for ETC@USC is our work to enable 3D to expand from the theatre into the home. As Presenting Partner of the 3D Entertainment Summit, we are able to bring what we hear from our Hollywood studio and large consumer electronics and technology sponsors, to help usher in the next generation of entertainment," said David Wertheimer, CEO &executive director of the ETC@USC.  "The 3D Entertainment Summit in association with Variety, presented by ETC@USC, is a unique opportunity for people to dig deeper into the creative and business opportunities for 3D."

Lab program manager for ETC@USC’s 3D Content Lab Phil Levyveld added, "Participating in the effort to elevate the value of the conference is beautifully aligned with the goal of the Consumer 3D Experience Lab, which aims to accelerate the convergence of 3D-based ideas, so that consumers looking for 3D content, products, and services will have a consistent, enjoyable purchasing and viewing experience.”

The Summit is expected to attract over 400 entertainment industry executives, who will attend keynotes, one–on-one interviews, panels, networking breaks, a sponsored luncheon, and an evening special event and reception.
