Formerly known as ESCA, this think-tank format, afternoon event will give studios and their partners a platform to voice their ideas and foster an open, industry-wide discussion about new directions. As such, THE Summit conference committee is conducting a ‘call for ideas” to be presented at the event. Selected presenters will be given 15 minutes each to share their big idea and then the floor will be opened in a moderated ‘town hall’ style discussion.
