About the ContentAsia Summit

The ContentAsia Summit launched in 2009 as a one-day focus on all the issues impacting Asia’s content industry. The event expanded to three days in 2014 but the mission is the same: to create a dedicated space to talk face-to-face about the content ecosystem and the innovation and strategies driving entertainment companies in an increasingly connected universe.

The goal, as usual, is to showcase content as the value creator it is, and to present a unique, independent agenda firmly grounded in ContentAsia’s day-to-day interaction through the year with the industry on the ground in Asia and with global companies operating growing content businesses in the region.

The ContentAsia Summit is organised by ContentAsia, an Asia-based information resource that covers content creation, funding, financing, licensing, distribution, design and branding, and technology across the Asia region.
