ContentAsia Summit 2019


28 August

 - 29 August 2019



Content players in Asia are marking their spots in a radically changing universe. This year's ContentAsia Summit is all about the humongous, super-charged effort going into creating whole new stories and building a production ecosystem to support them.

Key themes for the ContentAsia Summit 2019

Border Patrol
Production collaboration within Asia is rising as broadcasters, platforms and producers work on pooling resources and ideas to create premium stories that resonate with Asian audiences. A series of keynotes and panels will explore the current state of cross-border alliances between markets in Asia and how this trend is most likely to develop.

The diversity question: how is Asia doing?
A discussion about diversity and inclusion across the content spectrum in Asia, including turning up the volume on LGBTQ representation and services.

Premium drama
The volume of made-in-Asia content is expanding as streamers and other new players pour resources into innovation and differentiation, and bigger bets than ever are being taken on local premium drama series out of, among other markets, Indonesia and Thailand. A look at some of the current projects driving this trend.

On the Spot
Producers in Southeast Asia talk about whether they have the experience and expertise to manage large-scale multimillion global productions - and if not why not. Plus what needs to happen to grow the talent pool across the production spectrum, from story telling and development to executive production.

Looking East: International players
International production houses have put more feet on the ground in Asia in the past two years than they ever have before with a broader range of outcomes than in the past. This series of conversations will explore why, wins and losses, and what they're hoping for next.

Streaming wars
Like the rest of the world, Asia is bracing for the impact of new entrants into the already fiercely fought over streaming/OTT space. Meanwhile, local players are figuring out what their USPs are and where their spot in the new universe will be. ContentAsia looks at the current state of play.

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.
