INSTANBUL, TURKEY, 30TH SEPTEMBER 2019 — CTC; the global cinema technology network and DCS Events have announced a partnership enabling CTC to host a special programme at the forthcoming second Emerging Cinema Markets Conference in Istanbul.
Following on from recent global activities with BIgCineExpo (India) and upcoming participation at ExpoCine (Brazil), the Special ECM Programme on Tuesday 19th November 2019 (with limited availability) will commence at 9.30am in the Grand Tarabya Hotel, Istanbul and is open to sponsors, speakers and delegates to the Emerging Cinema Markets Conference.
The session will be of particular relevance to those working in cinema exhibitors, distributors and producers in Emerging Markets, Box Office Systems, Sound and Projection Technology, Analysts, Architects, Shopping Centre Developers and Financial Asset Investors.
The theme of the special programme is: “Every movie-goer deserves to have a great experience and that starts from the moment they purchase a ticket through to the lobby experience and the actual presentation in the auditorium”, CTC.
Richard Mitchell, President of CTC says “The cinema industry is developing at a fast pace in the Emerging Markets. We believe that there is an inherent need to bring the entire cinema community closer together from film makers through to exhibitors and manufacturers to provide vital education and knowledge-sharing to address some of the pressing issues relating to technology and presentation of content and create an improved final product for the movie-goer.”
“Technology and innovation continue to drive change not just across the cinema industry but in the way consumers digest and interact with content. CTC, with its impartial approach and breadth of expertise continues to enable the cinema industry to understand the opportunities new technology can provide, how and when new technologies might be implemented, what the industry standards of today and tomorrow might mean and how they might be adhered to, how to make better use of the technology that exists today resolved and ultimately what makes a better future for cinema,” explains Mitchell.
Rob Arthur, Founder and Director of DCS Events who host the Emerging Cinema Markets Conference says,” The Cinema Technology Community and its membership will play an ever increasing role in the development of cinema in these exciting new markets. The Emerging Cinema Markets Conference provides suppliers, exhibitors and content provides a unique chance to come together at #ecmistanbul to explore, discuss and learn about the key developments, technical challenges and innovations that are central to the cinema industry today and looking ahead to the future and we look forward to partnering with CTC.”
