TV programme executives’ body plans aggressively for US conference

The National Association of Television Programme Executives (NATPE) has an aggressive plan lined up for its three-day conference and exhibition in Las Vegas, USA, starting January 25, 2005.

The annual conference will host variety of panel discussions featuring senior level executives and addressing issues ranging from maturing of cable networks to the future of free over-the-air programming, from mobile enhancements of television packaging to US product in the global market and from advice on how to succeed as an independent producer to the reality of reality television.

"For speakers, we have lined up known names in the business to discuss important and interesting issues facing our industry," said Rick Feldman, NATPE President and CEO. "We are also continuing to outpace ourselves in terms of registration, both in attendees and the companies that will be exhibiting. I am confident that the number and quality of participants this year will re-confirm NATPE's relevance in the marketplace," he added.

Each day will feature sessions with topics like cable, advertising, programming, broadcast, legislation and business etc. Panelists include Kevin Beggs, President, Lions Gate Entertainment; Bill Cella, Chairman, Magna Global US, Ted Turner, cable network pioneer; Anthony Vinciquerra, President/CEO, Fox Networks Group and Jim Wiatt, COO, William Morris Agency, amongst others.

The event will also witness celebration for the winners of its 2nd Annual Brandon Tartikoff Legacy Awards, recognising excellence and leadership in the creation of television programming. This year's recipients include Carole Black, President & CEO of Lifetime Entertainment Services; Jim Burrows, Emmy Aaward-winning director and producer, and Dick Wolf, Emmy Award-winning producer and writer.

In addition, NATPE will hold an inaugural session that will address the impact of wireless, mobile and digital distribution technologies for television producers, developers, technology companies, broadcasters and advertisers.
