The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII)-Southern Region is organising a two-day national conference and exposition on the entertainment industry here on November 29 and 30. The conference would address issues relating to technology advancement, legal and regulatory issues, finance and insurance.

Experts and film industry veterans will address the conference and express their views. The meet will serve as a common platform for the stakeholders to thrash out issues. The conference will address the issues of professionalisation and corporatisation of the industry, the problems between television channels and the film industry, and pricing of tickets at cinemas.

India was among the few countries where there was a control on pricing of movie tickets. It was among the cheapest places for film watching.

According to Mr. V. Chandrasekaran, Chairman, entertainment and media sub-committee, CII, the conference will look at the potential to increase competitiveness of the Indian entertainment industry, to increase exports, and the need to address risk management and issues of corporate governance.
