And we’re off! The end of the summer, mournful though it can be, signals the beginning of a great cycle here at RealScreen. Our travel schedule steps up, allowing us more face-time with our readers and clients; news gathering and trend tracking become easier as industry activity picks up; and we begin our ramp-up to the sixth annual RealScreen Summit.

There is a distinct buzz of excitement that helps define the summit, which will take place February 4 to 6, 2004, at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City in Washington, D.C., and this year’s event promises to be better than ever. In just five years, the summit has become the must-attend event for anyone working in the evolving business of factual programming. Last year, attendance increased by more than 60% from year one, culminating in over 780 delegates.

In addition to the ideal size and focus that make the summit a great environment for doing business, the event also offers unparalleled access to key programming execs.

In 2003, 150 commissioning editors, programmers and buyers attended, providing countless opportunities for producers to network. All in all, the opportunities for sponsors and attendees to get busy are endless.

For those who have attended in the past, this February’s event promises new dialog that will keep you ahead of the curve on the latest industry trends and issues, just enough repeat content to allow you to take advantage of topics missed in previous years, and a few surprises, such as our new RealScreen Hall of Fame, which will recognize the top individuals in the non-fiction field.

For those who haven’t yet attended, don’t fret! The problem can easily be remedied by logging onto www.realscreensummit.com and taking advantage of our early bird registration. You’ll be saying yes to gaining a competitive edge, and saving US$300 on the cost of admission (think of everything you can do with that extra money!).

Through our various sponsorship options, tailored to get your message to our targeted list of non-fiction movers and shakers, the RealScreen Summit also offers you the unique opportunity to stand up against the competition and champion your company as an important player in the factual programming industry. Sponsorship packages move quickly, so contact us now to book your preferred options. Email sales@realscreen.com for more information.

On the road this month, watch for copy chief Deanna Wong and senior account manager Sarah Selhi at the Jackson Hole Wildlife Festival, and check the streets of Toronto for us during the Toronto International Film Festival.
