NYC Television Week Returns November 11-13, 2014

New Venues Bring the Television Industry to the Heart of Manhattan

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 05/19/14 -- The second annual NYC Television Week -- and the television industry -- will take over Manhattan from November 11-13, 2014. Featuring conferences at the Affinia Manhattan -- directly across from Penn Station -- and nearby venues, the industry gathers at NYC Television Week to network, collaborate, and celebrate in the media capital of the world. NYC Television Week is presented by Broadcasting & Cable, Multichannel News, and Next TV.

"Last year's inaugural NYC Television Week proved that it is something that the industry wants and will support," states Steve Palm, CEO, NewBay Media. "This year we are growing the week to offer even more diverse content and more experiential opportunities -- all from the most recognized thought-leaders in the business."

With conferences that cover the pressing issues faced by today's dynamic TV industry -- featuring best-in-industry speakers and keynotes -- NYC Television Week offers something for all industry professionals, including advertisers, content owners, content producers, programmers, MVPDs, technology providers, analysts, broadcast network and station group chiefs, app providers, and social platform and studio executives.

New for 2014 is a deeper dive into content issues and solutions with the addition of The Content Show at the Affinia on November 12-13. The Content Show will have a dedicated conference that will cover programming for scripted, live, news, sports, documentary, and reality shows, as well as branded content. Beyond the sessions, The Content Show will also feature a networking lounge and a series of demo rooms where production companies can pitch their content to buyers and programmers.

This year's NYC Television Week also features several key conferences from Broadcasting & Cable, Multichannel News and Next TV's Leadership Series, including Advanced Advertising and Business of TV in a Multiplatform World. These are joined by the popular Next TV Summit, now including the inaugural Next TV Awards.

"We have built upon last year's foundations by incorporating industry favorites with new current categories that demand attention," says Louis Hillelson, VP/Publishing Director, Broadcasting & Cable, Multichannel News, and Next TV. "Nothing covers the full breadth of the industry like NYC Television Week does. And, with this year's additions, we are delving even deeper into all things television."

Last year's inaugural NYC Television Week drew more than 1500 television industry executives to the Waldorf Astoria and the Metropolitan Pavilion. The conferences taking place that week featured 87 industry leaders as keynotes and presenters, including Mike White, President, Chairman and CEO, DIRECTV; David J. Stern, Commissioner, National Basketball Association; Stephanie McMahon, Executive Vice President, Creative, WWE; and Deb Roy, Chief Media Scientist, Twitter, to name a few.
