The unscripted and non-fiction content industry is undergoing a rate of change that comes with both new challenges and new opportunities. But one thing remains consistent – there is no better way to take the pulse of the industry and gain invaluable perspective from those at the forefront of the business than attending the Realscreen Summit.

A jam-packed roster of sessions featuring top executives and creatives from throughout the industry makes the Summit the most important market and conference for non-fiction and unscripted content creators and buyers from around the world. The 2017 edition will, through its panel sessions soon to be listed on the event agenda, dive deep into the hot-button topics dominating the discussion today, with an eye towards helping to shape the industry of the immediate future. From the opportunities available through the influx of new buyers and content platforms, to an examination of how the industry’s business model has evolved and where it needs to go, the 2017 Summit offers an invaluable window into the non-fiction and unscripted content business.

We have several panels confirmed thus far, including What I Did, What I Learned.

If you started a non-fiction production company 20, or even 10 years ago, you were the beneficiary of an international boom in factual and unscripted content, profitable networks in a growing cable industry, and confident programming execs looking to take risks and make noise. But as Lou Reed once sang, “y’know, those were different times.” In today’s more competitive, and some might say combative climate, business is done differently and even the veterans never stop learning. In this session, you’ll hear from those who built their businesses in the “boom” days and find out what they learned to prevent going bust, as well as from those who are now marrying interdisciplinary smarts with good old entrepreneurialism to set up shops today.

The Realscreen Summit takes place from January 23-26 in Washington DC. You can register now for the entire conference, with access to provided meals and social events, for just $1,550. Add Master Classes and the rate is $1,875. The full conference and Master Class rate is $2,075, so the savings are significant!
