Countdown to Event


NXStream Global kicks off with a networking breakfast buffet with food courtesy of the legendary Russ & Daughters.

Amazon and MGM’s Head of Awards Debra Birnbaum and Russ & Daughters’ Niki Russ Federman talk origin stories, Mrs. Maisel and creating culture.

Advertising Week Global President Ruth Mortimer and Xomad Founder and CEO Rob Perry set the scene of NXStream Global by discussing the changing nature of streaming and the growing role of micro streamers in telling stories and getting results.

CEO & Founder of Klutch Sports Group, Rich Paul, discusses today’s sports media landscape with 2-Time WNBA All-Star and ESPN host and analyst Chiney Ogwumike. The two address how sports media has changed over Paul’s 20 years in the business in order to keep up with both the entertainment industry and the ever-evolving athlete.

Ruth Mortimer talks to leaders from Verizon and Lyft about how they support the streaming landscape with regard to the entertainment industry. What happens when brands build their own streaming networks? What will 5G mean for the world of entertainment? Find out here.

What’s the value of developing original content rather than franchises? Join Franklin Leonard and a panel of producers and executives, including Hartbeat CEO Thai Randolph, Skydance Media President and COO Jesse Sisgold and Enthusiast Gaming CEO Nick Brien, to discuss the hunt for the next big idea.

Tom Ryan, CEO, Paramount Streaming with The Ankler’s Sean McNulty. They will discuss Paramount’s unique streaming ecosystem and how the company is differentiating Paramount+ and Pluto TV within the competitive landscape to service diverse audiences. Beyond powerhouse franchises and leading partnerships, Ryan will share what’s working to bring in viewers, the value of library content, and where oh where the international market is heading.

The only constant in Hollywood is change, and streaming is at center stage. UTA co-founder and CEO Jeremy Zimmer has been an outspoken leader on both business and societal issues. In conversation with Janice Min, Zimmer addresses the current and future state of streaming and the broader industry, and the path forward for the creative and brand communities.

Crooked Media CEO Lucinda Treat on what makes the podcasting landscape and audience unique, the ongoing opportunity — and concerns — in the political conversation, and what’s next for the industry.

Join Lynnwood Bibbens, CEO and Founder at Reach TV, to hear about how connected TV and data come together in a Black-owned media network disrupting traditional streaming.

What’s the science and data that Disney is using to drive its streaming services? Disney Advertising President Rita Ferro in conversation with Ruth Mortimer on the future of advertising in streaming.

Sony Pictures Entertainment CEO Tony Vinciquerra oversees a studio whose end-run around streaming’s be-all, end-all mission of the last decade proved prophetic. Under his watch, the company has become a massive “arms dealer” to the big services, a theatrical powerhouse and supercharged Spider-Man — all while leveraging the web of its own games and music engines. How did they do it? And what’s coming next?
