To be titled sponsored by BroadSign International and VJive Networks, the conference is set to focus on what the organisers describe as "the fastest growing new media sector in the country since the internet". The target audience includes end-users, government bodies, marketers, technology suppliers, entrepreneurs, financiers and content professionals.
Along with the aforementioned Frampton and Sasson, the speaker and panel member line-up will also include Ritesh Gupta (Television Asia/Asia Image and Screens.tv), Rajesh Jog (Waygate Capital), Chetan Madaya (Laqshya Digital Media), Andrew McCall (ROI Team) and Barnaby Page (screens.tv and Screen Media Magazine).
"We are delighted with the response that Screen Media India has received from the marketplace so far, both locally and internationally, and we have every confidence that it will be a success," Mark Pigou, director of Screen Events, told II recently. "Regional publications in the brand, advertising and out-of-home space are all very enthusiastic about the show 'coming to town' and are signing up as media partners. We have chosen an excellent, high-end venue to host the conference, the Taj Land's End, located in downtown Mumbai. As the media and commercial capital of India, Mumbai is the ideal place to network and share experiences so that organisations can become a lot sharper with a clearer knowledge of how to go about implementing digital media networks."
