André Kudelski headlines Variety’s Entertainment Summit at CES

CHESEAUX-SUR-LAUSANNE, Switzerland and PHOENIX (AZ), USA, January 9th, 2018 – As a featured speaker of the 2018 Variety Entertainment Summit at CES Las Vegas, André Kudelski, Chairman & CEO of the Kudelski Group, will address the fundamental shifts affecting the media and entertainment industry in a headliner conversation with Variety NY Digital Editor, Todd Spangler, on January 10th.

André Kudelski will highlight that fast digitalization of the world with borderless connectivity has become a key driver of social transformation. It has fundamentally disrupted media consumption and access to content and is profoundly altering the way business is done in the media and entertainment industry.

This transformation has some paradoxes, with the demand for global and open interconnectivity increasing at the same time as a growing part of Western society is challenging some fundamental notions of globalization and asking for new barriers to be better protected.

The session will showcase the insights and opportunities industry players need to embrace to succeed in this new media and entertainment world.

“Perspectives on Innovation & Technology Trends” will take place on Wednesday, January 10 at 9:35am (PST), at the Aria Hotel.

CES, formerly The International Consumer Electronics Show (International CES®), showcases more than 4,000 exhibiting companies, including manufacturers, developers and suppliers of consumer technology hardware, content, technology delivery systems and more; a conference program with more than 300 conference sessions and more than 180K attendees from 150 countries - including more than 58,000 from outside the U.S.
