Don’t miss being part of the 18th edition of the Realscreen Summit in Washington DC, taking place January 31 to February 3, 2016 at the Marriott Marquis. The Realscreen Summit is the world’s foremost conference and market for the non-fiction and unscripted content industry, and the place to get deals done. The event has experienced significant growth over the last few years and will attract in the order of 2,500 buyers, creators, and distributors of factual content from all corners of the globe.

The agenda will be posted in the coming weeks, but we are very please to announce a keynote session, In conversation with: Jana Bennett, History.

Jana Bennett, named president and GM of A+E Networks’ History in September of 2015, is responsible for overseeing all strategic planning, programming, marketing and brand development for History and H2. Throughout her television career – whether it was her time heading up TLC in the U.S., during which she redefined the brand by ushering in such programming as Trading Spaces and What Not to Wear, or her stint leading BBC Television, in which she oversaw the public broadcaster’s six free-to-air channels in the UK – Bennett has, time and again, proven herself to be a forward thinker with a keen eye for programming and trends on the cutting edge of entertainment. Most recently, she brought that penchant for progression to her previous role as president of FYI and LMN, where in its first year, she oversaw double-digit ratings growth for the FYI network via such successes as Married at First Sight and Tiny House Nation. In this one-on-one conversation, Bennett will discuss the importance of creativity in driving innovation within the content industry, and reveal her thoughts on where she’d like to take one of cable television’s most watched brands in the immediate future.

You can register now for the entire conference, with access to provided meals and social events, for just $1,650. Add Master Classes and the rate is $1,975. The full conference and Master Class rate is $2,075, so this is your last chance to save!
