Companies like Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, Facebook, Apple, and Google have shaken the entertainment industry to its core by redefining how content is made, distributed, marketed, consumed and analyzed.

"Our speakers will share insight into how Hollywood can effectively evolve, such as: How can collaboration be fostered between tech and entertainment executives?
