Israel is "emerging as a recognized innovation and entertainment hub," says Avi Nir, CEO of conference organizer Keshet Media.
LONDON – Hulu's director of content acquisition, Alex Kruglov, Lionsgate COO of Television, Sandra Stern, and U.K. broadcaster Channel 4's head of entertainment, Justin Gorman, are among the executives lined up to talk at a conference in Jerusalem later this year.
Organized by Keshet Media Group, the company behind the Emmy winning Showtime hit Homeland, the conference will mount a sophomore edition following the success of 2012’s inaugural INTV conference.
The second annual international conference aims to focus on the convergence of innovation and technology in the television industry.
Hosted by Keshet’s CEO Avi Nir and Nir Barkat, the mayor of Jerusalem, the two-day event will feature keynote talks, fireside chats and interviews with a host of global industry veterans.
Nir described Israel as "emerging as a recognized innovation and entertainment hub."
Other executives expected to land in Jerusalem include Caryn Mandabach (Nurse Jackie, That ‘70s Show, The Cosby Show) of Caryn Mandabach Productions and Tim Kring (Touch, Heroes), president & CEO, Tim Kring Imperative.
The conference runs November 4-5 at the YMCA, a historical Jerusalem landmark that serves as a center of cultural, athletic, social and intellectual life in Jerusalem.
Speakers from last year’s INTV conference included Ari Emanuel, WME’s co-CEO and Stephen Lambert, CEO of Studio Lambert.
