TheGrill
Returning, 2017

the leaders, the deciders, the disrupters

TheGrill is the leading annual conversation about the convergence between Entertainment, Media and Technology, bringing newsmakers together to debate the challenges and opportunities facing content in the digital age. Diverse content anchored by versatile talent and supported by big brands has always been the hallmark of Hollywood, and the technology revolution has brought new models to the fore – streaming video, VOD, theatrical and physical products all contributing to a reconfigured economic landscape.

We bring together the leaders, the deciders and the disrupters at the forefront of entertainment, media and technology. And unlike other conferences in this space, Founders and CEOs of these trailblazing companies lead the debate.

TheGrill has hosted notable entertainment leaders and creatives on the cusp of technological change, including Bill Maher, Seth MacFarlane, Netflix’s Ted Sarandos, actress Julie Bowen, Live Nation Executive Chairman Irving Azoff, writer-director Judd Apatow, CTO of Niantic Phil Keslin, John Landgraf CEO of FX Networks, David Nevins CEO of Showtime, Greg Foster CEO of  IMAX, Sarah Barnett President of BBC America  and Kickstarter co-founder Yancey Strickler.

Join our high level forum in 2017 for two days of hard-hitting and intimate conversations moderated by top level journalists and fueled by inquisitive conference attendees. Get the insider’s perspective!
